Medical Exercise vs. Physical Therapy

Medical Exercise is the use of exercise to help individuals manage medical conditions after they have completed physical therapy or other rehabilitation programs. The physical therapist treats the patient’s functional limitations resulting from a disease, injury, or surgery. They use various treatment modalities, including manual therapy, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound in treating the patient.

The Medical Exercise Specialist (MES) does not diagnose or treat the individual. The MES uses strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular exercise to help the client address functional deficits that remain after the client has completed rehabilitation.

Or is it your ability to perform a thorough and effective assessment of the medical exercise training client? Which one is it?

 

I've taught the Medical Exercise Specialists (MES) around the world since our first MES workshop in July 1994. This is our 28th year and we are seeing a change in the medical exercise training client. This is due to the reduction in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and chiropractic services. With clients receiving less rehab services, they now arrive at your medical exercise doorstep in need of more specific and challenging exercise management for their medical condition.
