Whether our patients are athletes or not, exercise is an important component in their recovery from a particular injury. When providing individuals instructions on an exercise, many clinicians do not think of the best possible ways to facilitate the desired movements with the least amount of energy or stress to the body. Understanding internal and external cueing can assist the clinician in getting the patient to move and exercise more efficiently. As the amount of evidence on cueing increases, it is important for clinicians to utilize appropriate dialogue with patient instruction. This course will provide participants information on the effects of attentional focus on skill acquisition and execution, the types of cueing, and when to use them.



By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

1. Understand the difference between internal vs. external cueing

2. Distinguish the phases of learning and when to incorporate cueing

3. Differentiate between the importance of both visual and auditory feedback

4. Implement appropriate cueing into treatment plans and performance training
