Exercise is one of the best ways to improve both your health and your quality of life. It also has an important role in the treatment of many different types of injuries. However, without a structured assessment, it can be difficult to know which exercises will work best for you.
Training for the course is designed to be interactive and informative. Trainers, coaches, and therapists will have the opportunity to learn from each other in a supportive environment that encourages discussion of clinical reasoning skills necessary for designing effective corrective exercise programs based on client assessment data. The variety of subject matter ensures that attendance at this workshop will provide attendees with new information they can apply immediately upon returning home.
Main Objectives of the Course:
Three objectives of this workshop are as follows:
- Students will be able to identify structural deviations in five major areas of the human body: the feet and ankles, the knees, the lumbopelvic hip girdle, the thoracic spine, the shoulder girdle, and the neck and head.
- Students will learn to assess which muscles and soft tissue structures may be affected by structural deviations and how to evaluate possible compensation patterns in static and dynamic situations.
- Students will be able to create and incorporate corrective exercises which target specific deviations into personal training programs.
What Will I Be Able to Do Upon Completion of this Course?
