Course Description: 

The world is at war with obesity. To be victorious, patients with obesity must be given tools to restore battlefield and must be armed with well-designed treatment plans; practical, evidence-based management strategies; and unilateral support from both medical and rehabilitation teams in order to best meet patient objectives. Obstacles like co-morbidities, lack of patient buy-in, and potential safety hazards abound but, with proper evaluation and sound exercise prescription, small battles can be won each day on the way to secure the bigger prize—a healthier patient.

 

Speaker: Chad Hensel, PT, DPT, MHS, CSCS
