This course expounds on the evidenced-based research and intervention techniques with resistive bands, flexibility treatment, and balance strategies for the healthcare professional to improve all aspects of patient care. The hands-on treatment techniques and interventions discussed herein can be used immediately and in all clinical settings. The scientific basis and clinical research of resistive, sensorimotor, and stabilization training and progression for patients of all levels is reviewed. Effective documentation strategies for payor reimbursement are also reviewed.
At the end of this course, the healthcare professional will be able to integrate stretch bands, resistive bands, and balance trainers into treatment strategies from pediatric to geriatric populations.
