Fundamentals of Therapeutic Exercise Program Design “Beyond 3 sets of 10”

Course dates: January 20th (6-8pm EST) and January 23rd (8am-12pm EST).

The aim of this course is to review and enhance knowledge around the practical application of therapeutic exercise. These sessions will touch on therapeutic exercise related to cardiovascular fitness, strength and mobility. The course will be divided into two live, on-line sessions.

The first session will consist of a 2-hour review and update of current, research based, exercise physiology principles. This will include a brief review of anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular and MSK systems. The group will then examine the various methods to challenge these systems and how to effectively achieve a desired goal.

The second session will be a 4hr cased based learning/discussion opportunity. As a continuation of the previous session, numerous clinical cases will be used to discuss effective application of therapeutic exercise in a rehabilitation setting. Cases will range from focused orthopaedic conditions to more advanced return to sport scenarios. There will be an opportunity for the participants to influence the direction of the focus and settings (straight forward to more complex). Time permitting there could be opportunity for participants to bring forth a current clinical case for the group to discuss and provide input.
