Hey Medical Exercise Specialist! What is the most important skill you possess as a medical exercise profession? The MET client two years ago received 12 physical therapy sessions, now it’s only six. The client coming out of the nursing home two or three years ago stayed 2 or 3 months, now the stay is only 2 weeks following a complicated hip replacement and a bout of pneumonia. Are you ready for her?
Here at the METI, we realize your most important skill as a MES is your ability to assess the client effectively and determine his or her functional deficits and where to begin training. To help our Medical Exercise Specialists, we developed the “Medical Exercise Training Assessment Skills Series” to help expand and sharpen your assessment skills.
The MET Assessment Skills Training Series (MASTS) includes seven webinars, which are all live streamed, go in-depth into medical exercise training assessment techniques for the shoulder, the elbow /wrist, cervical spine, lumbar spine, hip, knee, and ankle.
The series begins August 21st, which is a Sunday, at 10:00 am Eastern time, with the shoulder. We’ll go deep into the MET assessment of the shoulder looking at how to take a detailed medical history. How to perform goniometric measurements of shoulder movements; how to perform manual muscle testing on each muscle in the shoulder; how to perform some special testing procedures at the shoulder; as well as how to document your assessment findings and pull them together into a effective and safe exercise program. In every MASTS will do the same for each joint highlighted during the session.
