Exercise Principles Level 1

June 5th 2022 (4 hours)

Description :

Course Description: A clinical approach to exercise prescription that provides you with a structured process to determining your patients level and what exercise is appropriate for them. We will review a graded system which will help you determine when a patient is ready for exercise or if they would benefit from treatment/manual therapy prior to starting exercise. Also learn how to choose the appropriate level of exercise and learn stages to either scale the exercise up or down based on your patient's presentation. These principles are easily applied to any part of the body and will help take the 'guesswork' out of exercise selection and avoid the common error of giving patients exercises that are too hard even though you may think it's easy.
