“The therapeutic exercise environment may be the last bastion for bridging movement experiences directly with patient functional needs in a manner that truly fulfills expectations and quality-of-life potential. However, therapists may not have received adequate education in developing a basic therapeutic exercise prescription, much less well-designed strength and conditioning programs. This potentially generates a large dilemma for the profession that desires to “own the human movement system.” (Nyland, 2015)
I created this page as a resource for PT students and clinicians who want to spend some time learning principles of therapeutic exercise while also brainstorming ideas.
Please note – this is intended for informational purposes only and targeted at clinicians. Exercise your clinical decision making before adding an exercise. I would encourage everyone to read through the resources in the clinical framework section. All of them are excellent.
This page is managed and maintained as a service to the profession. If you would like to buy me a coffee or support it in any way please do so through the link below.
