This comprehensive presentation will cover guidelines related to the initial consultation and assessment; initial program design, progression models, and safe exercise selection for individuals who suffer from nearly any type of chronic disease and/or orthopedic issue.
You’ll learn how to:
- Explain an approach to exercise prescription for special populations (chronic disease and orthopedic issues) that covers most medical maladies in a post-rehab and fitness atmosphere. The emphasis in this presentation will be on orthopedic issues (e.g. joint pain).
- Explain and demonstrate the importance of balancing flexibility from both a joint ROM and myofascial mobility perspective.
- Provide a general outline for both initial exercise prescription as well as progression guidelines for people with chronic disease and/or orthopedic issues.
