Course Description

Current exercise prescription is typically based on a structural approach which is often contrary to true neuromuscular function. The BBB course is really about using low-tech, inexpensive tools to get great clinical outcomes. The instructors will show clinicians a different way to make clinical decisions about how to use these tools and provide evidence to support them…facilitating a more functional approach to rehab. This course will teach a paradigm shift in exercise prescription where therapists will be able to design a more functional exercise program based on a combination of orthopedic and neurological approaches. Clinical decision making for a full spectrum from rehabilitation patients to wellness clientele will be presented. The instructor will provide a platform of evidence based clinical reasoning and attendees will learn through labs. Participants will gain new treatment skills using resistance and balance equipment already available in clinics, and will learn a scientific approach for impairment-based exercise progressions using patient positioning and appropriately-dosed exercise prescriptions. This course offers new problem solving skills for PTs, PTAs, ATs, OTs and COTAs that can be used with patients immediately!
