Learning Objectives

Topics covered during the workshop will include:

  • The Force Velocity Curve - understand how to 'work the curve' to improve rehabilitation outcomes
  • The Repetition Continuum - learn how to manipulate it to bring about specific adaptations
  • Adherence - discover how to ensure your rehab programme actually gets done
  • Exercise Selection - learn through hands on sessions appropriate exercise selection, progression and regression
  • Exercise Prescription - understand how to manipulate key training variables and design evidence based prescriptions that deliver results

Event Description

In this 1-day workshop Nick will show you why rehabilitation exercise prescription principles from the 1940’s are no longer acceptable. Rehabilitation exercise selection and prescription are simple concepts that we make more complex than necessary. Nick will show you simple evidence based principles that will allow you to produce effective rehabilitation programmes to meet your client’s needs. The concepts can be easily be incorporated into your practice, building upon what you already do well, whilst challenging your existing ideas. Nick will show how expanding your ability to design and implement effective exercise prescriptions can improve compliance and rehabilitation outcomes. Drawing on experience, practical examples based on numerous case studies will offer practice based evidence to consolidate learning during the classroom sessions.

Refreshments: coffee / tea and lunch will be provided
