Description

As insurance continues to reduce physical and occupational therapy visits and patient co-pays continue to escalate, patients and providers alike demand more rapid outcomes in therapy. Without question, therapeutic exercise progression is the hallmark of physical and occupational therapy prescription. It is imperative that the therapist have a sound rationale for exercise progression to maximize patient outcomes, whether it is a pediatric or geriatric patient or a high-level athlete. In order to do that, a review of foundational principles of resistance exercise is warranted. Next, a proper understanding of rehabilitation objectives--endurance, strength, and power--will enable the therapist to understand how to appropriately progress a patient. Furthermore, the therapist will understand how to manipulate training variables like load, rest periods, set structures, and repetition schemes to promote variability in program design, maximize treatment sessions, and minimize the risk of boredom and plateaus. This course provides a framework for progressing patients with upper and lower extremity conditions as well as how to appropriately test progress with evidence-based outcome measures.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------***COURSE OBJECTIVES***At the conclusion of the course, the therapist will be able to: 1. Define foundational principles of exercise, such as the SAID Principle and Selye’s General Adapation Syndrome, as well as specificity, overload, and variation. 2. Appropriately define and contrast endurance, hypertrophy, strength, and power regarding set, load, rest period, and repetition structure. 3. Perform a needs analysis for the patient to ensure individualized program design. 4. Understand how to manipulate training variables, such as set structure, repetitions, and rest periods to achieve specific training goals. 5. Understand the principle of periodization and how it applies to therapy exercise progression. 6. Describe various testing procedures and outcome tools to appropriately measure progress in a rehabilitation program. 7. Articulate how to progress patients with upper and lower extremity conditions following principles of exercise progression.
