Course Overview


This 3-day course builds on the curriculum of MET 1: Precision Therapeutic Exercise Dosing, presenting a step-by-step approach for therapeutic exercise design and delivery. To help therapists build clinical reasoning skills in exercise prescription, therapeutic exercise design, dosing and delivery are taught with an emphasis on the “why” and “how” rather than on specific exercises. As hands-on professions, practical lab components using real clinical scenarios are mixed with interactive discussion-based lectures for skills that can be applied right away in the clinic. Hands-on practical lab components are mixed with interactive discussion-based lectures. Technical skills are taught, practiced and mastered to be administered efficient and effective right away in the clinic. Hand-held dynamometry is presented as a comprehensive framework and skillset for initial assessment, biomechanical evaluation and the starting point for precision exercise dosing and design.
