Just lift it...a simple model for physiotherapists prescribing strength exercises - Part 1

There is an increasing role for physiotherapists to prescribe exercise interventions across the population.

However despite this pressing societal need, many physiotherapists lack the knowledge and confidence to effectively prescribe strength training exercises. Specifically, they report unfamiliarity with minimum exercise requirements and confusion regarding the specifics of exercise prescription parameters. Such confusion is understandable given a lack of formal intensive training in prescription strength exercise in many physiotherapy curricula, ambiguous and complex strength training literature and the intimidating nature of gym environments. Merv will present a simplified model for the prescription of strength training in contemporary clinical practice.
