Solve Age Related Degenerative Challenges: A Hands-on Course



You feel helpless and frustrated as you watch the older patients who come to see you suffering from a loss of muscle mass and subsequent weakness. If you don’t find opportunities to challenge their strength through exercise, the risk for injury and overall loss of vitality is just around the corner. Jamie Miner, PT, DPT, GCS, understands the predicament all too well.  As an expert who has focused her clinical practice treating older adults, she has collected the practice tips you need to re-invigorate the ways in which you challenge patients to achieve the functional goals that they, too, are after.

The frequency, intensity and duration of exercise needs to match the individual’s abilities and goals. Are you confident that you are using the best exercise to address each patient’s unique and individual needs? Are you offering enough challenge to the older patients you see?  Maybe you have just become a little complacent...relying on the exercises that have become all too familiar, rather than thinking outside the box.

In this recording, you will practice new techniques to ultimately design safe, effective and individualized strength programs. You will leave with a multitude of new clinical pearls to help patients achieve the desired goals, despite the challenges that the variety of spine, gait, postural and trunk related changes may be creating. Let’s not forget that your time is tight...Jamie will provide analysis of the key evidence-based findings to guide your future treatment decisions. Increase your confidence and skills before you see the next patient!
