As manual therapists our focus must be to restore function following injury, surgery or physiological condition. Exercise rehabilitation is another modality to enhance the efficacy of your treatment, and must be included in all client’s treatment regimens.
This workshop outlines the theories and practices in exercise rehabilitation, including;
The basis of injury rehabilitation, healing constraints, evaluation of rehabilitation program, psychological considerations, goal setting, neuromuscular control, ROM / flexibility, Muscular strength/endurance/power, balance and postural control and cardiovascular fitness.
The workshop teaches you how to develop a protocol from the established research and guidelines, in an easy to follow format. Consequently the programs you develop can be referred to for future clients with similar conditions. Thereby enhancing consistency with your treatment, developing appropriate goal setting, including the end goal, and ultimately “getting rid of your client”.
This workshop is highly recommended as a prerequisite for the area specific exercise rehabilitation workshops.
This course is for myotherapists and seats are strictly limited. Pre-reading for the course will be emailed prior to commencement and a light lunch will be provided.
This event contributes 8 PDPs (Category 1) toward Myotherapy Association Australia Member professional development requirements.
