Medical Exercise Case Study....Can You Manage This Client?


Case Study Friday

The Advanced MES Virtual workshop starts in 4 days - October 20 - 23, 2022. Day 2 of the AMES will go deep into a number of areas. These areas require a much greater understanding for a medical exercise professional than a personal trainer.

Histology, neurology, arthrokinematics, documentation and communication are next level MET skills and knowledge needed...
