Post Rehab Exercise Protocols
Post Rehab Exercise Protocols
The “PREPS” – Post Rehab Exercise Protocols finally gives you step by step post rehab protocols and guidelines. PREPS is the advanced version of our original Post Rehab Protocols published in 1997. We expanded the original protocols by adding 50 additional protocols and guidelines. In all, PREPS contains protocols for more than 60 medical conditions. Individual protocols are available but a a significantly higher price than the complete manual. PREPS are based on the outcomes of 1989 post rehab clients over a three-year period.
Each PREP or protocol contains essential components that are vital to the development of a safe and effective exercise program. PREPS is unprecedented because these protocols are designed specifically for use when establishing post rehab conditioning programs. These are the first and only post rehab protocols available with such detail for post rehab professionals. The essentials components found in each PREP include:
- Clinical Anatomy/Pathology/Biomechanics
- Post Rehab Criteria
- Post Rehab Goals
- Post Rehab Assessment Guidelines
- Post Rehab Precautions
- Post Rehab Progression Guidelines
- Post Rehab Fitness Program Summary
- Post Rehab Exercise Flowcharts
- Post Rehab Exercise Descriptions
- Post Rehab Red Flags
- Post Rehab Exercise Selection
These components will make your job much easier as a post rehab professional and allow you to connect with medical professionals in your community. If you have ever guessed when to end an exercise or how ot assess a client, PREPS will help you take the guesswork out of post rehab fitness.
The PREPS manual contains 644-pages of assessment, exercise selection and progression guidelines. Each PREP contains post rehab flowcharts and exercise diagrams so you can see exactly how to manage the post rehab program for your clients with medical conditions.
