Athletes of Life: When Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Become your Client’s Most Challenging Workout

In this session, we will discuss the ADLs that make up our client’s everyday functional movement patterns. These may include reaching, weight shifting, standing, and environmental scanning. You will be guided through a thought process that helps you create programs for your clients that will focus on strength, mobility, and stability so they can keep an independent lifestyle.


1 - Identify and understand both visible and invisible physical challenges that affect your client’s ADLs.

2 - Understand why consistently assessing and cuing different motions and positions will create better outcomes for your client's everyday needs and abilities.

3 - Explore an array of common ADLs, then create programming examples to fit various physical challenges.
