Functional Strength: An Updated Approach to Exercising our Patients is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Nov 07 - 08, 2020 at Mendelson Kornblum Physical Therapy, Detroit, Michigan, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 continuing education hours. Course Description: This class will give you the ability to advance your understanding of therapeutic exercise and your ability to create basic to advanced functional exercise programs. You will learn to assess functional weakness and differentiate this from weakness found in manual muscle testing. Finally, apply concepts learned in class to build a program that is customized to your patient. This course will progress from basic fundamentals to advanced, high-level athletic plyometric training. As with all Great Lakes courses, it will be 75-80% hands-on but attendees aren't required to perform all of the exercises shown in the class. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Given a case study, assess functional weakness in a patient using the four pathological barriers to ideal/optimal movement. • Perform an assessment of a dysfunctional movement pattern and specifically identify 2 primary and 1-2 secondary compensatory movements occurring due to weakness and/or pain. • Accurately justify the use of functional strength testing versus manual muscle testing when assessing a patient. • Properly exhibit and/or correctly perform 4 exercises using a functional approach to muscle activity. • Correctly state the rationale for an in-depth functional strength assessment of upper extremity, lower extremity and trunk. • Properly execute an in-depth functional strength assessment of upper extremity, lower extremity and trunk. • Correctly apply force couples, synergies, and muscle slings to the body to address function-specific strength deficits. • Develop and implement a comprehensive functional exercise program, progressing from basic to advanced levels for patients. Topics Covered: • Overview of the principles of functional muscle assessment • Differentiation between muscle action and muscle function • Proper technique for open kinetic chain exercises and closed kinetic chain exercises • Functional Exercises for the upper body • Functional exercises for the lower body • Functional exercise for the trunk/core • Exercises using body weight, therapy ball, resistance bands and foam roller
