1. The Physiology of Performance Initiation, Stability, and Motor Control
This chapter details where exercise for initiation, stability, and motor control fits within the exercise framework. It describes the relationship of performance initiation, stability, and motor control and discusses the importance of exercises to enhance these.
2. Assessing the Need for and Progress with Performance Initiation, Stability, and Motor Control Exercise
This chapter describes various methods for assessing the need for exercises for stability, motor control, and performance initiation of muscle, cardiovascular, and balance. These methods may also be used for outcome assessment to gauge the effectiveness of your exercise prescription.
3. Exercises for Performance Initiation, Stability, and Motor Control
We'll describe exercises that would enhance stability and motor control and assist in muscle, balance, and cardiovascular performance initiation. It includes indications and contraindications, types of exercise, and exercise parameters.
4. Case Application of Exercises for Performance Initiation, Stability, and Motor Control
In our final chapter of this course we describe a case of a patient with decreased muscle activation, stability, and motor control after a total knee arthroplasty. It includes a demonstration of assessment and outcome measurement techniques and exercise prescription for enhancing performance initiation, stability, and motor control.
