CE Credit Hours: 1.00 Continuing Education Credit Hours
CEU Course Description
Since stretching exercises are commonly prescribed in training and rehabilitation programs, this CE course provides physical therapists with the determined frequency of on-going hamstring stretching required to maintain knee extension range of motion following an initial stretching program.
The article for this course is from Physiotherapy New Zealand, www.physiotherapy.org.nz, as first published in the New Zealand Journal of Physiotherapy.
CEU Course Objectives
1. Discuss the criteria of a hamstring muscle group stretching program to be sufficient for eliciting significant changes in knee extension range of motion.
2. Investigate how many times per week an on-going stretching program is required in order to maintain the improvement in range of motion following an initial stretching program.
3. Identify how to increase compliance rates with home exercise programs once a client is discharged from therapy.
