Osteoporosis Management: An Introductory Course for Healthcare Professionals
This one day interactive course includes lecture and lab activities along with a case study. Participants will leave with an understanding of the scope of the problems, specific tests for evaluating patients, and appropriate safe exercises for an Osteoporosis program. Evidence based research, along with critical thinking will provide an understanding of the unique challenges of the osteoporotic population.
You will have the opportunity to experience Osteoporosis-safe exercises in your own body and learn visual imagery techniques. This provides your patients with optimal alignment and reduces compensatory strategies which put them at risk for future fractures. You will be able to explain the various tests for osteoporosis to your patients and provide them with education and a safety checklist when going to the gym or other fitness programs after therapy.
