In this workshop Dr Lederman will explore exercise prescription from a Process Approach perspective. This approach aims to identify the dominant recovery processes associated with the patient’s complaint and provide a management that is patient and condition specific. The management includes unique manual techniques and amplifying specific daily tasks and activities that provide the necessary challenges to support recovery.
The workshop will look at the timescales for commencement of exercise after injury, surgery and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. It will also explore how to challenge movement losses in the presence of pain; in particular, identifying when physical loading is safe and beneficial. The workshop will also discuss exercise prescription in relation to enhancing physical and sports performance and injury prevention.
The workshop is modelled on a functional approach in which the movement challenges are derived from the individual’s own movement repertoire. A functional approach is different to traditional remedial exercise practices that are mostly derived from the fitness/strength and conditioning industry. These traditional approaches are often unsuitable and ineffective for individuals recovering from various musculoskeletal and pain conditions.
In this workshop you will learn a current science informed approach that can provide a therapeutic continuum between the clinical session and the patient’s environment. This approach will allow you to develop more effective post-session remedial and self-care management that can be applied to a wide range of musculoskeletal and pain condition. In the workshop you will explore how your own remedial approaches can be integrated into the management. Overall, the workshop will provide you with knowledge to develop suitable movement / exercise and self-care plans to further assist the pace and success of your patients’ recovery.
