Class overview

Exercise can be a powerful tool to help manage many conditions seen in the clinic. However, there is currently a lot of misunderstanding surrounding exercise therapy – When is a specific type of exercise needed versus more general exercise? Is it ok for exercise to be painful? What is the right dosage of exercise? And perhaps most importantly, how do we get our patients on board with exercise? This Masterclass answers all these questions and more, empowering you to use exercise in the most effective way possible to enhance patient outcomes.
