Exercise Prescription as a Complement to Manual Medicine
This unique course is designed to complement the muscle energy biomechanical model. The exercises taught to assist the participant in developing an individualized exercise program based upon the patient’s biomechanical findings and help to maintain the changes made after manual therapy treatment.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1) recognize the functional anatomical connections of the upper and lower quarter musculature to the proximal trunk and pelvis;
2) understand the concept of neuromuscular imbalance as a contributor to chronic musculoskeletal dysfunction;
3) learn specific functional movement tests for the upper and lower quarter and manual therapy treatment approaches to address each dysfunctional movement pattern;
4) prescribe specific exercises to refine neuromotor control in both the upper and lower quarter; and
5) develop functional movement exercise programs for patients to incorporate into their home self-management program.
