CPDO – Functional Exercise Prescription in Movement and Sports Rehabilitation

June 20, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm



  • Construct a personalised and condition specific exercise management
  • Exercise prescription without “exercise”?
  • Discover “functioncise” – the life gym

In this workshop Dr Lederman will explore exercise prescription from a Process Approach perspective. This approach aims to identify the dominant recovery processes associated with the patient’s complaint and provide a management that is personalised and condition specific. The management focuses on amplifying specific daily tasks and activities that provide the necessary challenges to support recovery.

The workshop will look at the timescales for commencement of exercise after injury, surgery and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. It will also explore how to challenge movement losses in the presence of pain; in particular, identifying when physical loading is safe and beneficial. The workshop will also discuss exercise prescription in relation to enhancing physical and sports performance and injury prevention.

The workshop is modelled on a functional approach in which the movement challenges are derived from the individual’s own movement repertoire. A functional approach is different to traditional remedial exercise practices that are mostly derived from the fitness/strength and conditioning industry. These traditional approaches are often unsuitable and ineffective for individuals recovering from various musculoskeletal and pain conditions.
