Bands, Flexibility and Balance - A Health Care Professionals Guide for Interventions

Format(s):   Home-study
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy
Contact Hours:   5
Registration Fee:   $144

Course Goals: This course is designed to instruct clinicians on the use of resistive exercise for rehab. Professional Objectives: At the conclusion of this course the participant will be able to: Identify the first two areas that should be addressed when using a functional exercise progression. Identify what proper positioning of patient allows. List the indications for elastic resistance Identify the sources of flexibility Identify what can happen with no stretching Identify three key areas of proprioception Identify the three levels of functional stability Identify what is included in a vicious cycle of instability List steps of sensorimotor training Identify progression for sensorimotor training Identify stages and importance of sensorimotor training and progression List the advantages/disadvantages of stabilization training Recognize how to document services delivered for evidence based results Criteria for Completion:A score of 70% or more is considered passing. Scores of less than 70% indicate a failure to understand the material and the test will need to be taken again until a passing score has been achieved.

Do you want to learn some hands-on techniques to use with your patients? This course will give you hands-on experience with resistive bands, flexibility techniques with stretch bands and stabilizers to improve your patient care. We;ll be looking at the scientific basis and clinical research of resistance training, dosing of elastic resistance exercise, and exercise applications with patients of all levels, with techniques and the integrated uses of elastic resistance. We'll also be integrating stretch bands, resistive bands, balance, and stability trainers with a variety of exercises to improve patient's functional levels.Resistive exercise adds a variety of exercise applications to patient treatments, allows a combination of bands, flexibility and balance techniques that challenge the patient not only neuromuscular but sensory and vestibular as well. With a resistive band, you can work in all positions. You can focus on functional, repetitive techniques that facilitate progress. It has so many integrated uses.This Seminar-on-Demand is 5 contact hours in length (check your state's approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).
