Exercise & Movement Rx

Modern Clinical Practice
Modernize your knowledge and strengthen your practice with an injection of education exploring exercise and movement in a biopsychosocial framework.
All health care professionals know that exercise and movement can benefit most every case that they encounter, but often lack the knowledge, skills, or confidence to prescribe them. (Barton 2021)
79% of health care professionals who responded to the Barton (2021) survey believed opportunity for professional development affected their ability to prescribe exercise.
Enter this course.
We will explore the prescription of exercise and movement from different angles and perspectives, becoming comfortable in its vastness and learning many simple ways to apply it in practice.
The foundational concepts of modern clinical practice are constantly evolving, as is the evidence base from which they emerge.
We will discuss what these foundational concepts are, their relevance, and how you can incorporate them into your practice.
This two-day, 14-hour course is for health care professionals who are looking to gain skills and confidence in helping people via ‘modalities’ other than manual or electro therapy.
It is for musculoskeletal (MSK) clinicians of all levels of experience who are looking to better understand and incorporate more exercise and movement prescription into their practice.
This course is for those who wish to explore and learn the multitude of ways patient ‘education’ can be used to positively impact outcomes.
It is for those who are keen to level up their practice by getting up to speed on the biopsychosocial model, pain science, person-centered care, evidence-based medicine, and other clinically relevant concepts of modern MSK practice.
To the benefit of your patients, you will learn information and skills that you will be able to apply immediately in your practice.
Though I do teach you some exercises throughout the course, this course’s primary aim is not to increase your exercise database. The primary aim of this course is to inform you of the latest guidelines and principles related to exercise and movement prescription in modern, evidence-based musculoskeletal health care.
You will be given access to PDF’s of seminal research papers pertaining to the course.
You will be given a pdf version of the course PowerPoint slide deck.
