This course offers practitioners practical guidelines for the application of specific therapeutic exercises for patients with neuromusculoskeletal conditions. The philosophies of this course are based on a scientific understanding of connective tissues and exercise dosage. The course will include both lecture and lab demonstrations as well as emphasis on case study development and presentation in order to provide the participant with a “hands on” experience that will carry over into clinical practice.
At the end of this course attendees will be able to…
- Define biomechanical nomenclature as it relates to exercise dosing.
- Describe the composition, mechanism of injury, and optimal stimulus for regeneration for the various connective tissues.
- List, describe, discuss and perform the optimal dosed stimuli for rehabilitation of patients with primarily neuromusculoskeletal impairments.
- Prescribe a specific dose of exercise based on the status of the tissue involved and the goals of the treatment.
- To design specific exercise progressions by performing exercises/activities related to revascularization/regeneration, coordination, endurance, speed, strength, and function.
