Event description

Description

I have completed a lot of courses and qualifications over the years and I can say without doubt that becoming a strength and conditioning specialist has totally transformed my practice as a physiotherapist. It is something that unfortunately is not taught on our undergraduate degree, yet it is perceived that we are experts in exercise prescription. I now know, after finishing my physiotherapy degree, I was not an exercise prescription specialist. As physiotherapist’s we are in a perfect position to be leaders in the world of sports medicine and performance enhancement. However, although we are experts in movement analysis, we are definitely in second place when it comes to strength training. This course will give you an introduction into how S&C can transform your current practice both with athletic and non-athletic patients (Granny’s& Grandad’s included).

This course is designed to help the therapist understand their patient’s mindset so that they can help improve exercise compliance and adherence. The practical elements will help them build better more robust strength programmes for any population and especially the elderly who often get neglected when it comes to this area of exercise therapy. This course has been attended by all disciplines of physio (neuro, COE, respiratory, community etc.), osteopaths, sports therapists, chiropractors, GPs, SEM doctors, S&C coaches and physio assistants.

Learning outcomes

  • How to become a better Coach and understand your patients Mindset.

  • Understanding the key principles of S&C & how you can implement these into early, mid and late stage rehab (from post op to pole vault…if that’s your sport)

  • Why exercise prescription is more than just 3 sets of 10.

  • How to identify the correct strength-training goal for your patients (& not just the sporty ones).

  • Understand the biomechanics of strength/power training (This is more fun than it looks, I promise)

  • How you can adjust exercise programmes for pathological conditions & get better, faster results (including guidelines on return to sport).

  • How to increase your patient’s strength without hypertrophy or needing a gym membership.

  • Why rest intervals during strength training are so important for the recovery of the nervous system & how manipulating this can affect the quality of your exercise programme.

  • The difference between strength and power movements & why knowing the difference is essential in return to sport from injury.

  • Why adjusting load is the key to managing overuse injuries & why light load can sometimes be not as effective as heavy load.

  • Why fundamental movement patterns are essential for all your patients.
