Rehabilitation is training for the injured so they can self-manage. Unfortunately, the status quo promotes a “fix it’ approach. FPOM Prepare aims to help people participate in valued life activities. We do this by creating an environment that gives people hope by giving them a positive experience with movement.

Learn how to:

  • Avoid cookie cutters & protocols by developing a client-centered reasoning process
  • Connect the dots from a person’s story to you’re plan 
  • Prepare people for Return to Participation, Play and Performance
  • Assess “yellow flags” ofover-protection
    • Belief that a person needs a “fix it” approach
    • Belief that hurt=harm & physical activity is dangerous
    • Lack of confidence &/or commitment to perform self-care independently
  • Assess load or under-preparation
  • Identify activity intolerances and a person’s floor current capacity and ceiling required capacity for their demands
  • Create relatedness through motivational interviewing
  • Perform a six-part movement prep to assess baseline movement competency and pain tolerance
    1. Sensory-afferent input via the foot
    2. Physiologic “warm-up (heart rate, core body temperature, high-threshold breathing)
    3. Active mobility (hip, shoulder, t-spine, foot/ankle)
    4. Pillar prep (posterior chain & kinetic chain force transfer via the torso)
    5. Special “correctives”
    6. Energy storage & release (i.e. springs & shocks)
  • Gamify constraints-based motor learning (internal vs external cues, problem-solving)
  • Record baseline floor issues distinguishing acceptable vs unacceptable dysfunction as a springboard to measurable & impactful interventions
  • Provide a positive experience with movement to increase tolerance & de-sensitize painful movementsReassurance & Reactivation for gradual exposures to feared stimuli
  • Find the “hardest thing a person does well” related to their goals/demands by slow-cooking adaptation

What you will take away:

  • How the inactivity crisis is leading to a disability epidemic and an increasing gap between biological age and chronological age
  • Four principles to use as a GPS in finding “Plan B” for rehab & training
    1. Reassurance
    2. Reactivation
    3. Resilience
    4. Risk Management (Variability)
  • How to bridge the gap from
    1. Science to the trenches (knowledge translation)
    2. Rehab to training
    3. Physical activity & bodyweight exercise to load
    4. Current capacity shortfall (e.g.floor) to required capacity (e.g. ceiling or demands)
  • How musculoskeletal pain is a “Gift of Injury” allowing us to promote lifestyle behavior modification that can manage Non-communicable disease (NCD) risk.
  • How “vested interests” and the status quo bias promotes over-detection (e.g. nocebos), over-diagnosis (tests w/ high false + rates), and over-treatment (surgery, injections, opiates, NSAIDs, passive therapies, “corrective exercise” purgatory)
  • The Precision Profile documentation system for client-centered programming
  • How movement preparation is the prerequisite for athletic development and general physical preparation  (GPP)
  • The continuum from Preparation or readiness to Training to Recovery
  • How to give tangible hope and an achievable plan through a positive experience with movement
