Postural Assessment and Exercise Prescription BCRPA CEC Course

Postural Assessment and Exercise Prescription

 

DESCRIPTION:

Mother understood the importance of posture. She encouraged us to “stand up straight” and “not to slouch.” Posture is vital; it has an impact on all that we do. Poor posture can increase one’s risk to injury and places increased stress on the body. This course will cover how to quickly and effectively assess posture and provide exercises to correct common postures. This practical course is hands-on. You will leave the course with a wealth of useful information to help your clients.

 

 

OBJECTIVES:

 

– Key concepts of posture
– Effective techniques used to assess posture
– Common postures and key features that identify them
– Exercise prescription for common postures
– Different ways to teach better posture to your clients
– Tying it all together with case studies

Please note: During the class we will perform postural assessments. It is important to wear clothing that allows for an accurate postural assessment.  Please wear shorts or biking shorts, and a t-shirt or sports top.
