Physiotherapy Course Summary:
A must attend course for Band 5, 6 and 7 physiotherapist, for osteopaths and Chiropractors.
Exercise prescription is a cornerstone of the therapist’s role. To apply exercise effectively, therapists need to understand aspects of sport and exercise science as well as modern principles of training.
These topics are often only covered superficially at undergraduate level, and so the 2 day EEP course bridges the gap between science and therapy in this vital area.
Combining modern principles of Strength & Conditioning (S&C) with rehabilitation science, this evidence based, practically oriented course guides participants through the process of structuring, teaching, progressing and reviewing an exercise programme.
For those who feel their exercise programmes could be more effective or for those unsure what to advice clients if they wish to visit gym, this course is a must.
Key topics covered:
Update on exercise physiology
• Training responses and adaptation
• Principles of exercise selection
• Structuring an exercise programme
• Exercise progression and regression
• Illustrative case histories & problem solving
• Needs analysis in rehabilitation
• Effective exercise teaching
