Nick Grantham:'Integrating Strength and Conditioning into Injury Rehab'
'Strength and Conditioning' is said to be a fundamental part of allowing successful recovery from injury.
However, within physiotherapy and healthcare, application of strengthening exercises have received scrutiny over recent years, with critics suggesting these treatment choices are often poorly selected and 'dosed' ineffectively.
This 2 Day Course will aim to address these issues by issues by providing a comprehensive demonstration of how to apply the aspects of Strength and Conditioning that are required to obtain results.
- Areas covered during the workshop will include:
• Evidence Based Practice - application of evidence based strength and conditioning throughout the rehabilitation process in a range of settings (clinic, gym, home).
• Programme Design and Planning - design evidence based prescriptions that deliver results. Discover how to apply appropriate techniques with an understanding of how to progress during the rehabilitation process.
• Strength and Power Loading Concepts - understand the force velocity curve and how to identify the patients strength requirements. Provide evidence of the the physiological principles of loading in relation to the desired functional adaptation.
• Training Variables - manipulation of key training variables (sets, reps, load, recovery) to bring about specific adaptations.
• Patient Engagement - discover how to ensure your rehabilitation programme actually gets done.
• Practical Exercise Solutions - learn through hands on sessions, appropriate exercise selection, progression and regression.
• Contemporary Interventions - hands on sessions exploring effective application of velocity based training and blood flow restriction.
