STRENGTH & NEUROMUSCULAR CONDITIONING FOR REHABILITATION

STRENGTH & NEUROMUSCULAR CONDITIONING FOR REHABILITATION

COURSE PHILOSOPHY

This course is predicated on two basic principles:

 1. Back To Basics

In the current time- and often resource-pressured clinical environments, the basic and
fundamental principles that drive adaptation, and thus recovery are often overlooked
in favour of current trends in an attempt to achieve optimal patient outcomes as
quickly as possible. Often these trends and techniques lack an evidence-base and, or,
lack efficacy across multiple patient groups. Here we redress the basics of
rehabilitating muscle strength, power and endurance, an important process given that
many ‘gold standard’ randomised controlled trials within rehabilitation employ flawed
methodologies.

2. Harnessing the Evidence Base

Many neuromuscular conditioning strategies that have demonstrated efficacy in
enhancing conditioning status within sports and athletic performance-based science
offer equivalent opportunities within rehabilitating settings. Yet, many of these simple
evidence-based strategies are not routinely deployed in normal clinical practice. Here
we critique the scientific literature from a rehabilitation perspective and distill it down
to provide a toolbox of additional techniques to use with patient groups
