Course Description:

This course will provide an evidenced-based discussion and review of strength and conditioning principles as they pertain to rehabilitation, present frameworks for incorporating strength assessment and prescription into daily rehabilitation practice with a focus on the transition from “therapeutic exercise” to “exercise training”, and present examples of strength and conditioning programs resulting in 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. Finally, select conditioning methods and techniques will be taught and integrated into the programming frameworks.
