This course will review the fundamentals of Exercise Physiology and explores ways to apply them to the clinical environment. Doctors will be able to answer patients questions on proper bio-mechanics, fat burning and appropriate or inappropriate exercises. Learn the specific focus of plyometrics, or useful benefits of doing eccentric exercises. Understand the details of aspects of rehabilitation and the specifics of training a muscle for Endurance, Hypertrophy, and Strength.
The object of this course is to review the fundamentals of exercise physiology that doctors were taught in school and then learn how to apply them to the clinical environment. This course will cover in detail the neuromuscular factors that were mentioned in the “Core Stability Plus Extremity Rehabilitation” course as a part of the full spectrum of optimal bio-mechanical function. Thus resulting in a more complete and enduring effect from rehabilitation.
Given our societies sedentary lifestyle, knowledge of the proper methods and applications of improving muscular integrity is essential. Just knowing what an eccentric, concentric, or isometric contraction is not enough. Doctors attending this course will learn when, why, and how to appropriately apply these methods of muscular adaptation as well as when not to apply them. This will help doctors to optimally benefit their patients condition and lifestyle.
Doctors will also learn ways to implement assessments to determine their patients current fitness level to insure the appropriate level when starting a treatment program. Doctors will also be taught the techniques for proper bio-mechanics to help patients overcome the pitfalls of “gym science” and thus avoid injuries.
Understanding the correct methods for increasing the integrity of the musculature that supports the spine and moves the body will help our patients become stronger and more functional in their everyday lives. This is crucial in maintaining our overall health, longevity and quality of life.
