Developing an exercise program is one of the core strategies used by rehabilitation professionals to provide treatment for their patients. These exercise programs can vary widely based on the target population and the respective activities that these patients are trying to return to. This innovative 2-hour course provides the rehabilitation professional with a fundamental knowledge of strength and conditioning principles, exercise science, and evidence- based practice. Understanding these combined concepts would allow the practitioner to utilize sound clinical reasoning when developing appropriate exercises and treatment progressions for successful outcomes in rehabilitation.
