Over the weekend I attended the APTA’s 2018 Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting.
Dr. Kathleen A. Sluka, PT, PhD, FAPTA, gave a strong presentation titled Pain Mechanics which took a mechanism-based approach to pain management. Therapeutic exercise has the ability the impact all pain mechanisms. Recent studies promote a time-contingent rather than pain-contingent approach to dosing for therapeutic exercises for chronic pain.
The first question is: what should be the dose and dosage of the therapeutic exercises?
How do you determine your exercise dose and dosage?
At MET Seminars, we teach a MET-odology for precision therapeutic exercise design, dosing, and delivery. As clinicians ourselves, we bridge the gap from research to clinical practice.
Did you attend? What were your thoughts?
