In this course we break down the key considerations in exercise prescription for the knee.

We will review the functional anatomy of the knee, general principles behind exercise selection and programming, and use case studies to practically address how the role of client differential and diagnostic tests dictate exercise selection and direction of the program.

The key areas of the course include:
– Understanding the role of the knee in movement, stability and power;
– Reviewing clinical considerations in selecting an appropriate program for your client;
– Identifying contradictions to exercise prescription for various conditions;
– Program considerations for specific populations and activities;
– Using clinical reasoning to justify your choice of exercise selection;
– Apply processes to case studies

Working in groups to apply these principles in a practical manner to a variety of case studies, participants will develop a clear process to guide decision making from the client differential to program development, application and progression.
