He has published his latest book “R.E.P.S.: Rehabilitation Exercise Progression System”: a helpful guide for physical therapist seeking to maximize rehabilitative success for their patients.

The term “reps” is commonly used in the exercise realm as a shortened version of repetitions, or the number of times a particular movement is performed for any particular time segment. The title “REPS” makes reference to the aforementioned and serves as the acronym for the title in its entirety: Rehabilitation Exercise Progression System.

In any professional setting where rehabilitation is performed—medicine, sports, schools, and fitness / personal training—a system for prescribing and administering rehabilitation exercise is necessary in order to provide the best outcomes for patients and/or clients. Once a condition is identified, it can be challenging to determine where to start and what to prescribe. Certain factors such as the individual characteristics and level of conditioning of the patient/client must be considered. The scope and purpose for making choices in a rehabilitation exercise regimen must be based on a foundation of movement that is naturally human. Next, selection of appropriate exercises and a plan for progression to attain rehabilitation goals, both personal and clinical, need to be implemented. This book takes into account all these factors and presents a comprehensive rehabilitation system with progressions to take the guesswork out of the equation for achieving outstanding results for the busy practitioner.

Published by Page Publishing, Reid Elam’s engrossing book is an invaluable resource for those who serve in the sports, orthopedic, physical medicine and rehabilitation, personal training, and fitness professions.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “R.E.P.S.: Rehabilitation Exercise Progression System” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
