How do you decide what exercise and what dosage is appropriate for your patient? Therapeutic exercise is a mainstay of rehabilitation and one of the most effective interventions to address our patient's impairments, limitations, and restrictions. Having an evidence-based framework for determining appropriate exercise given the patient's current physiologic function and contextual factors is the basis for sound exercise prescription.

This information will enhance exercise interventions for practitioners of all levels.
