An Evidence-Based Approach to Exercise Selection and Dosage 

Instructors: Owen Runion and Paul Yerhot

Credits:  7.5 CEU hours

Course Description
The cornerstone to physical therapy practice is selection and dosage of exercise and activity. The goal of this course will be in advancing and challenging the clinicians' clinical reasoning around exercise selection. The histology, remodeling process, and biomechanics of tendon and bone will first be explored to serve as a foundation necessary for recognizing efficacy of our therapy treatments. Second, patient cases will assist in bridging the gap between research and practical application. Different feedback loops and activity tracking systems (such as the acute:chronic workload ratio) will be discussed as tools to rehab individuals with tendinopathies and bone stress injuries. Please wear loose clothing.

Target Audience:
 Physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and students
