Exercise Rehab & Movement Therapy

Explore applied anatomy, kinesiology and biomechanics with key underlying themes of tissue specific identification, injury based movement modification, and use of evidence based best practices. The primary focus will be identification and correction options for common musculoskeletal imbalances as they can be applied in both functional movements/poses and general clinical practice.

Course Description

This course focuses on an in-depth exploration of applied anatomy, kinesiology and biomechanical with key underlying themes of tissue specific identification, injury based movement modification, and use of evidence based best practices. We review muscles, joints, fascia and learn how compensation in one region can affect or cause imbalances in other regions & focus on the identification of prime movers, synergists, antagonists ‘nerve flossing’ and reciprocal inhibition/contract relax techniques as they apply to various positions and stretching techniques. The primary focus will be identification and correction options for common musculoskeletal imbalances as they can be applied in both functional movements/poses and general clinical practice.
