This seminar provides therapists with up-to-date information on the often-underutilized intervention of strength training. Through lecture, demonstration and case applications, participants will gain a clear understanding of the basis of strengthening, design and progression of training programs, and special considerations for strength training in the older population. Interactive sessions offer the opportunity to learn and practice specific evaluation techniques for immediate implementation in the practice setting. Forums on specific strengthening exercises allow therapists to share and take home practical exercises for training the upper extremity, lower extremity and trunk with a range of resistive exercise equipment. An analysis of the precautions, contraindications, and program components for patients with a variety of rehabilitation and medical diagnoses provides a literature-based overview of approaches to strength training for these populations. Participants will expand their knowledge to design, implement, evaluate, and modify effective strengthening programs confidently for the older population.
