Do you work with anyone who has suffered from or is currently experiencing back pain? Do your clients have postural problems? If you answered "yes" to either of these questions you (and your clients) will benefit from this course! This information-packed course is intended for serious strength and conditioning coaches, rehabilitation specialists and personal trainers.

  • Understanding the functional anatomy of the torso and extremities as they relate to improved spinal health
  • Learn proper exercise technique, exercise selection, order of application and exercise modifications for orthopedic concerns.
  • Learn useful assessment techniques for effective program developement.
  • Learn how to perform a range of motion assessment on the lower extremities and how joint restriction effects squat technique.
  • Become familiar with the defining characteristics of motor learning and how they affect exercise effectiveness.
  • Review and analyze the biomechanical intricacies of trunk stabilization and the importance of strong back stabilization.

This seminar  reviews and analyzes the biomechanical intricacies of stabilization exercises as a necessary prerequisite to general strengthening of torso musculature for both patient and athlete. This information is essential for preventing repetitive stress disorders that lead to injury. The synergistic interaction of muscle groups in performing complex frontal, transverse and sagittal plane movements are clearly explained. Technique flaws, harmful to spinal structures, that encourage postural degeneration are exposed, addressed and countermanded to reestablish optimal function.
