Course Outline
As Physical/Occupational Therapists and Physical/Occupational Therapist Assistants we are often looked at or referred to as the experts in exercise therapy.  Exercise therapy may be prescribed or performed with different goals or objectives in mind, including pain control, strength training, coordination improvement etc. to name just a few.
In addition, there are many factors that may influence the outcome of the exercise regimen prescribed/performed. These factors include patient’s compliance, patient’s performance, clinician’s explanation, many disease
processes, exercise progression, medication etc.
This course will address these very topics. It will discuss the basics of exercise therapy by reviewing muscular anatomy and physiology and by then addressing how extrinsic factors such as medication, progression etc.
will affect the exercise therapy program. Intrinsic factors such as disease processes affecting muscles will be discusses as well.

protocols will be reviewed, discuss
