Ready for a "twist" in how you think about the core and truly functional exercises? Get a fresh perspective on movement dysfunction by analyzing the "Core Twist" and how to correct it.
Functional Exercise Success: The Secret is in the Core!
Clinicians understand that lasting pain relief and truly improved fitness depend on core stability and peripheral mobility. But long-term results are elusive! It is generally agreed that to have peripheral mobility, you must have core stability. Functional exercise is any exercise which acknowledges this and engages the body for this express purpose.
Participants in this experiential and hands-on workshop observe (or act as test subjects!) as we use sEMG to explore the primary defensive bias governing the Central Nervous System, the body's true Core. Once we have observed this bias, which we'll call the "Twist," we discuss how it leads to the most common functional problems. Rather than focusing on targeting areas for strength or stability, participants learn to correct movement dysfunction by directing appropriate exercise toward the CNS. These methods can be easily learned and applied by athletic trainers and related health and fitness professionals, massage therapists, physical and occupational therapists — anyone who uses exercise as part or all of their program. Participants will leave this seminar equipped with new knowledge and strategies to help move clients and patients through the vital steps toward lasting function: improved balance, coordination, and effortless posture.
