This subject builds on principles from 92521 Functional Anatomy and 92543 Exercise Prescription, and relates closely to concepts covered in 92564 Sport and Exercise Medicine. It examines the role of exercise prescription in the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal, cardiac and neurological conditions caused by disease, sport or workplace injury. It focuses on developing a strong understanding of the physiological, biomechanical and psychological limitations of these conditions as well as developing proficiency in the skills required for individualised prescription of exercise programs for these populations. The subject has a strong focus on preparing graduates with relevant practical skills that can be utilised in the fields of exercise rehabilitation, exercise physiology and strength conditioning.
