Description

It is extremely important when working with certain segments of our population, such as the elderly, the obese and those with chronic conditions, that we establish movement and functional baselines in order to create the most effective exercise program. Today there is an abundance of screens, tests and assessments from which to choose in order to do this. In this course, you will gain insight as to how you can navigate which screens and tests are most appropriate, thereby allowing you to make the best decision on what will help clients achieve their goals.
