DESIGN. DOSING. DELIVERY.
Precision Therapeutic Exercise

Overview

Each course furthers the step-by-step approach for precision therapeutic exercise design, dosing and delivery. As hands-on professions, practical lab components using real clinical scenarios are mixed with interactive discussion-based lectures for skills that can be applied right away in the clinic.  To help therapists build advanced clinical reasoning skills in exercise prescription, therapeutic exercise design is taught with an emphasis on the “why”, “how”, and “when” rather than on specific exercises.  Hands-on skills for the clinical application of hand-held dynamometry in comprehensive assessment, documentation of objective strength measures, and precision exercise dosing are practiced and mastered.
