Dr. Scotty Butcher is an Associate Professor in the School of Physical Therapy at the University of

prescription. Currently training as a powerlifter, he has a passion for strength training and translates this

to promoting quality exercise training and rehabilitation practices for clinicians and students. His focus in

research, teaching, and clinical work is on the hybrid rehabilitation/strength training approach, and shares

his views through blogging and vlogging. Connect with Scotty on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and

Course Description: This course will provide an evidenced-based discussion and review of strength and

conditioning principles and practices as they are applied to rehabilitation settings. It will present

frameworks for incorporating strength assessment and prescription into daily physical therapy practice

with a focus on the transition from therapeutic exercise to exercise training and describe the evidence for

long term training adaptations for healthy, recreationally active, and clinical populations. With a primarily

practical component, therapists will learn appropriate rationale and techniques for integrating major

movement patterns into their therapeutic exercise programs and appropriate coaching methods and cues

for assessing and teaching squatting, deadlifting, and pressing patterns (and their

regressions/progressions). Finally, select conditioning methods and techniques will be taught and

integrated into the programming frameworks.
