Dynamic Movement Training
Hip & Thigh
The hips are the true linchpins of the body! They provide the foundation for both the spinal system and the knees & feet. Hip muscle imbalances or inefficiencies can have profound negative effects. Therefore, having a clear understanding of how the hips function and influence the rest of the system is crucial. In this fun and thought provoking course you'll observe, analyze and actively participate in movement-based exercises while learning new treatment strategies designed for immediate use at the clinic. This course was created to give you a birds’ eye view of how to use dynamic movement training to treat the myriad of conditions seen in this area.
Traumatic Hip & Thigh Issues:
Repetitive Stress or Degenerative Injuries:
This approach goes beyond stretching and strengthening muscles. Use the Dynamic Integrated Movement concepts in this course to improve patient compliance, outcomes and extrapolation to daily activities. Connecting the dots between exercise and ADLs is imperative for long lasting results!
