As post rehab fitness grows and gains acceptance by medical professionals it is important to make sure you understand the services and activities that fall within the scope of practice for the post rehab professional. The practice of all medical disciplines is closely regulated by a board of examiners usually appointed by the state or provincial legislature or governor. The board specifically outlines the educational requirements, licensing procedures, accepted treatment and procedures practitioners may use in their manage of patients. At this point, no state or provincial legislature has established a scope of practice for the post rehab professional. We have established a scope of practice for our Medical Exercise Specialists, Post Rehab Conditioning Specialists and Medical Exercise Program Directors. We teach this in every post rehab workshop we offer. Continue below to look review the post rehab scope of practice. Our next post will review the red flags indicating a client needs evaluation and/or treatment by a licensed medical professional.
