Are you a clinician struggling to manage stress fractures? 



Let me help you up your rehab game! 

My name is Nathan Carlson. I'm a physical therapist, coach, and business owner and I've spent the last 12 years helping runners manage bone stress injuries.

The way we manage stress fractures needs to change.

Standard stress fracture rehab goes like this.

Throw the runner in a boot.
Hand them some protocol based exercises.
Print off a standard return to run protocol.
Cross your fingers they don’t re-fracture. 

Most rehab programs leave runners underloaded and underprepared for returning to training and competition. 

Runners often end up navigating their recovery through Google, Instagram and their training partner's expert opinion. 

Let me help you up your clinical game with my Online Stress Fracture School.

In this six-week virtual cohort, I'll condense the latest research on  bone health, bone stress injuries, exercise prescription, and coaching. I'll combine that with my years of experience helping runners get back to running with their friends, winning state championships, and competing professionally.

We will dive deep into the science, but zoom out on how to apply key principles with living, breathing runners. 

I'll help you answer challenging patient questions like

"When can I start running?"
"What pain is ok to push through?"
"How should I progress my nutrition while I progress training?"
"When will I feel 100% again?!"

That’s not even the best part. Rebecca McConville, a world-renowned expert on nutrition in endurance sports will be along to teach you all you need to know about nutrition and stress fractures. 

By the end of this cohort, you will be confident in navigating a comprehensive subjective exam, be able to effectively run a thorough orthopedic examination and gait analysis, and develop specific exercise and run plans catered to specific fracture sites and the unique runner in front of you.

You'll have the skills and confidence to become the stress fracture expert in your local community. 

This cohort will include:
  • Six weekly, 60-75 minute presentations over Zoom covering a key, practical topic related to bone stress injuries.
  • Weekly reading and practical assignments to further develop your knowledge.
  • A private Facebook group utilized between sessions to expand on the lecture topics and case studies.
  • Weekly office hours to get all your questions answered between sessions.
Let me help you break down bones, so you can help build them back up.
