Corrective Exercise Solutions to Common Shoulder and Hip Dysfunction
Dysfunctions of the movement system are at the core of most cases of musculoskeletal injury, including but not limited to degenerative joint conditions, impingement syndromes and chronic myofascial and joint pain. These movement impairments result in repetitive and cumulative microtraumas that affect individuals in their occupations and everyday activities, as well as in their attempts to be more physically active.
Full of color photographs illustrating precise assessments, corrective strategies and functional progressions, author Evan Osar demonstrates how the fitness professional or clinician can apply the three principles of human movement--respiration, centration and integration--to improve common movement dysfunctions of the hip and shoulder.
Evan presents the main reasons clients develop faulty movement patterns so fitness professionals and clinicians can understand and explain the mechanisms behind their clients' hip and shoulder dysfunctions. Well-illustrated, he then describes how professionals can help their clients and patients, either with quality referrals or exercise techniques to keep the body moving better and free of pain.
This comprehensive yet handy reference provides easy-to-implement, principle-based solutions to common movement dysfunction of the hip and shoulder. Fitness professionals or clinicians can then expand on their expertise as movement specialists to become a part of the solution to the health care crisis.
