Unravelling Strength & Conditioning for Therapists
Andrew McCauley MSc BSc CSCS HCPC MCSP
On 4th - 5th July 2020 in Derby for 2 day(s)
at London Road Community Hosptial

This intensive 2 day course will give you an introduction into how S&C can transform your current practice both with athletic and non-athletic patients.

Learning Outcomes
  • Understanding the key principles of S&C & how you can implement these into early, mid and late stage rehab (from post op to pole vault...if that's your sport)
  • Why exercise prescription is more than just 3 sets of 10.
  • How to identify the correct strength-training goal for your patients (& not just the sporty ones).
  • Understand the biomechanics of strength training (This is more fun than it looks, I promise)
  • How to increase your patient's strength without hypertrophy or needing a gym membership.
  • Why rest intervals during strength training are so important for the recovery of the nervous system & how manipulating this can affect the quality of your exercise programme.
  • How you can adjust exercise programmes for pathological conditions & get better, faster results (including guidelines on return to sport).
  • The difference between strength and power movements & why knowing the difference is essential in return to sport from injury.
  • Why adjusting load is the key to managing overuse injuries & why light load can sometimes be not as effective as heavy load.
  • Why fundamental movement patterns are essential for all your patients.
