Exercise rehabilitation is at the core of any physiotherapy practice. The goal of any rehabilitation is to restore function to the greatest degree in the shortest time, helping people return to their function with minimal risk of re-injury. In this course Lee Herrington provides a deep understanding of the principles of exercise rehabilitation and how to incorporate these principles into developing rehabilitation programmes appropriate for the individual. This course initially explores the key principles of exercise rehabilitation in relation to the physical stress theory, effects of loading, mobility and rigidity and the influence of pain. These are then discussed in relation to rehabilitation considerations which will ultimately enable us to understand loading in relation to the tissue and the individuals needs, and apply a series of loading experiences to an individual to achieve intended outcomes.
Develop knowledge of the principles of exercise rehabilitation and how to incorporate these principles into developing rehabilitation programmes appropriate for any client.
The course content is split into the following sections:
- Video presentation by Lee Herrington

Physiotherapist, United Kingdom
This course is a treasure for clinicians in the business of treating patients who love to improve their knowledge and skill and desire evidence-based treatment in their practice irrespective of what specialty in the medical profession you may belong to. This course is well worth your time!
One thing that impressed me about this online course is if I have a question, there is always a quick response (the discussion forum is available all the time). This is critical when distance is involved. Excellent content and videos that build on your knowledge, reinforce, and then expand. The quizzes were well designed and very good learning tools.
