Course objectives

Based on the material presented in the course seminar, the on-line material, and independent study; the student will be able to:

• Display understanding of the anatomy and physiology of muscle tissue in relation to exercise

• Demonstrate proper clinical decision making skills, including clinical reasoning, as it relates to the choice of exercise.

• Understand and be able to relate the effects of exercise dosing, and positioning in the exercise protocol.

• Related the effects of exercise on the different anatomical structures, contractile and non-contractile.

• Be able to apply techniques to localize mobilization and stabilization exercises for the spine and extremities.

• Utilize the proper augmented exercise to maximize the outcome following manipulation.

• Determine the proper/best (evidence influenced) treatment approach based on PT diagnosis.

Course Description

This course will present a systematic approach of skilled physical therapy exercises. Augmented exercise in the form of regional specific home exercise protocols are becoming of greater importance to improve manual and physical therapy outcomes. This course will offer an evidence influenced practice approach as it relates to exercise dosing, stretching, stabilization and will put this in perspective based on the upper and lower crossed syndrome and the often encountered spinal instability. The principles of a progressive exercise protocol will be discussed allowing the clinician to design (evidence influenced) exercises to restore optimal function. Understanding of different principles of strength, endurance, stabilization, coordination will be developed. As a physical therapist and fellow we are to recognize and prescribe the specific exercises as well as dosing towards specific goals for the tissue and joints involved. The treatment component of this course will introduce the participant to a variety of augmented exercises to maximize clinical outcomes. After completion of this “Augmented exercise” course the participant will be able to effectively design an exercise protocol for the patient treated.
