Abstract (5 modules)
As therapists, we often recommend exercise to reduce patients' musculoskeletal (MSK) pain, as well as increase their active range of motion and muscle strength. However, clinicians face a challenge when recommending exercise to reduce MSK pain because the pain itself often inhibits the patient's ability to exercise or perform activities of daily living. This situation becomes even more challenging if the prescribed exercise program aggravates the individual's pain.
This 5-module course including cervical, thoracic, lumbar, hip and knee and shoulder regions describes a method which provides for the effective treatment of MSK disorders by allowing patients to exercise pain free earlier in the rehabilitation process. The method comprises a unique approach utilizing the following four components simultaneously from the onset of treatment: isometric muscle contraction; assisted active oscillatory mobilization; end-of-range passive stretch; and mindfulness.
