Improve your skills and confidence in performing static and functional postural assessments. Learn how to identify common postural dysfunctions in your clients and the best progressive exercise techniques to address them. This is essential knowledge for any fitness professional who wants to help their client avoid or rehabilitate injury.
This posture and assessment online workshop is ideal for all fitness professionals. Learn new skills and improve your confidence in performing the initial static and dynamic postural assessment.
Poor posture can increase the risk of chronic injuries such as tendinosis, lumbar facet joint pain and disk injuries. Being able to recognise postural dysfunctions such as poke neck posture and Trendelenburg gait is crucial when designing a safe and well-balanced exercise rehab program. A series of static, dynamic and range of movement assessments will help you identify these postural dysfunctions and imbalances in your client.
Once you know what you are looking for it is important to know what to do about it! The Postural Correction Exercises section will take you through a number of exercise progressions targeting the most common postural imbalances. These include squat, lunge, dead-lift and push-up progressions, as well deep core muscle activations. Each exercise progression will take you from phase one of muscle activation through to advanced functional exercises.
This workshop will ensure that your programs are focused on avoiding injuries, not causing them!
The practical assessment includes 2 questions. You will be required to video yourself demonstrating a particular task based on the information taught to you in the workshop. The videos do not need to be long and can either be uploaded to the learning site, or sent to us via a link.
Once all assessments have been completed you will be able to download your Certificate of Completion.
