1-day lecture workshop for Fitness & Movement Professionals that covers the common musculoskeletal pathologic conditions of the body, with an emphasis on application for fitness trainers and other movement professionals, including Pilates and yoga instructors.

Some of the conditions covered are:

  • Bulging and herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Upper crossed and Lower crossed syndromes
  • Scoliosis
  • Sacroiliac conditions
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Degenerative joint disease (Osteoarthritis)
  • Sprains, strains, tendinitis/tendinosis, and myofascial trigger points
  • Overpronation of the foot (flat foot)
  • Knee meniscus and patellofemoral syndrome
  • Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome
  • The underlying mechanisms for these conditions is discussed and applied to assessment and rehabilitation approaches for the fitness and movement professional.

The approach of this workshop is to teach from the perspective of critical thinking so the trainer/instructor can creatively apply their exercise techniques with their clients.
