Designing Functional Rehab Programs

Designing Functional Rehabilitation Programs

This month’s Inner Circle webinar was on Designing Functional Rehabilitation Programs. I think this may be my best webinar yet, or at least my most important. Rehabilitation is changing. Our focus has shifted away from myopic treatments of single joints and towards integrated movement patterns and regional interdependence.

In this presentation, I overview my system for building my rehabilitation programs and show you exactly what components I include and how I design the sequence of activities. I then overview a case study of a patient of mine that is 4 weeks out of ACL reconstruction surgery. As you’ll see, his “rehabilitation” program is not the typical quad sets and straight leg raises that you may expect. I’ll show you how I integrate functional movements, strength training, balance, agility, total body exercises, and even metabolic conditioning.

Assessing Scapular Position

Assessing Shoulder and Scapular Dynamic Mobility

Assessing Shoulder and Scapular Dynamic Mobility

A thorough assessment of the shoulder must look at the posture and dynamic mobility of both the shoulder and scapula. More importantly, we need to assess the interaction between the shoulder and scapula and not look at the two in isolation.
