SARA MEEKS: “Stepping Down” Exercise Prescription for Improved Functional Outcomes

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This evidence-based, experiential, active and participatory 1.5-hour webinar will focus on the management of the long-term, chronically-ill, physically-frail, or pre-frail, cognitively-intact patient. The presentation will include adapted exercise and movement suggestions for patients who are being seen by rehabilitation personnel in ICU, Acute Care, Home Care, Nursing Home, Skilled Nursing and Long-Term Care Facilities such as burn and organ transplant units as well as Out-Patient. These patients frequently exhibit several co-morbidities (e.g.,COPD, osteoporosis, burns, organ transplants, cardio-pulmonary and neurological conditions) that may influence movement and exercise prescription. Some of these conditions may have conflicting treatment options (e.g., spinal stenosis vs osteoporosis) and some diagnoses may take precedence over others. Emphasis is placed on innovative techniques for strengthening of the core muscles: Diaphragm and other Breathing Muscles, Lower Abdominals, Pelvic Floor and Back Extensors and other “Fountain-of-Youth Muscles” such as the Gluteus Maximus and Medius.
