Title: Targets of Exercise Prescription: Why getting strong might be wrong.
Synopsis: This talk will explore how and why we prescribe physical activity for our patients. It will offer practical recommendations and justification for exercise and physical activity prescription beyond addressing changes in biomotor abilities.
Dr. Greg Lehman Bio
I have an interesting educational combination of physiotherapy, chiropractic and strength and conditioning training. I have spent 2 1/2 years completing a MSc in spine biomechanics, 4 full time years in chiropractic college (spending more than 15 hours per week for four years practicing manual therapy) and seven years working as a researcher in exercise and clinical biomechanics. After working for several years I spent an additional 2 years obtaining a MSc in Physiotherapy (Queen's)
Awards and Academic Pursuits
I have been in the rehabilitation field for more than 20 years. Following my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology (4 full time University years) I was awarded the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology Gold Medal for highest academic performance in Kinesiology. This degree allowed me to obtain certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Certified Fitness Appraiser and I have worked as a Strength and Conditioning coach for Sir Wilfrid University's Men's Basketball team and for Queen's University Women's Varsity Hockey Team.
My success in university resulted in being awarded a graduate scholarship (NSERC) to Waterloo University to be 1 of only 2 Masters students studying with Dr Stu McGill, a world leader in Spine Biomechanics, exercise prescription and athletic performance.
As a faculty member at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College I developed a research program that produced more than 20 publications on exercise biomechanics, golf fitness andthe science of manual therapy. I taught more than 25 graduate students in Spine Biomechanics and Research Instrumentation and supervised more than 50 students and 20 undegraduate research theses.
I was subsequently awarded a Researcher of the Year award by the Ontario Chiropractic Association.
Greg Lehman is also teaching a 2 day workshop
