Event description

Description

This 2 day course presents a step-by-step approach for precision therapeutic exercise dosing and delivery within a comprehensive framework for implementing clinical best practice rehabilitation in daily practice within a value-based delivery system. As hands-on professions, practical lab components using real clinical scenarios are mixed with interactive discussion-based lectures for skills that can be applied right away in the clinic. To help therapists build clinical reasoning skills in exercise prescription, therapeutic exercise dosing and delivery are taught with an emphasis on the “why” and “how” rather than on specific exercises. Hands-on skills for the clinical application of hand-held dynamometry in comprehensive assessment, documentation of objective strength measures, and precision exercise dosing are practiced and mastered.

Topics: exercise prescription; training principles; biopsychosocial model; hand-held dynamometry; clinical fatigue test; dosing and dosage; concentric, eccentric and isometrics; intra and inter session progression; optimal improvement; 4 outcome domains.

Audience
Physical therapist, Physical therapist assistant, Occupational therapist, Occupational therapist assistant, Athletic trainer
