Put Some Muscle Into Ther Ex

Dr. Wendy Anemaet, PT, PhD, GCS, CWS, GTC, COS-C


Course Description

Resistance training is an integral component of therapeutic exercise. Put Some Muscle Into Ther Ex provides therapists with clinically challenging information on this often underutilized intervention for the geriatric population. Through dynamic lectures, audiovisuals, demonstrations, case applications, and a comprehensive handout, participants gain an updated understanding of the theory underlying resistance exercise, design and progression of training programs, and special considerations for resistance training in older patients. Interactive sessions offer the opportunity to learn and practice specific evaluation techniques including hand-held dynamometry and 1 RM strength testing for immediate implementation in the practice setting. Forums on specific resistance exercises allow therapists to perform, share and take home practical exercises for training the upper extremity, lower extremity, and trunk with a range of resistive exercise equipment. A synthesis of the precautions, contraindications, and program components provides participants with specific research based protocols for a myriad of diagnoses and functional limitations. Put Some Muscle Into Ther Ex provides a one-step update on resistance training that will jump start your patient outcomes.
