Joint Integrity AND INJURY PREVENTION: Joint by Joint analysis

Joints are the interface of movement quite often holds the key to proper function of the human body. Joint motion (arthro-kinematics) must involve adequate mobility, integrated tissue mobility, proper timing, and dynamic shape stability. In this interactive session, a joint by joint analysis up the kinetic chain will be shared which involves screening and training protocols.

  • Illustrate a detailed look at the 3-D anatomy of key joins.
  • Describe functional biomechanics of joint motion.
  • Learn how to screen for proper joint motion.
  • Anchor into a structured programming approach to mobility and joint strengthening.
  • Learn exercise drills which increase mobility, stability and strength.
  • Learn restorative mobility routines.
  • Learn integrated resting postures.
  • Learn ground to standing sequences.
  • Learn dynamic stability and strength joint work.

IOM Program Design

Programming for clients and athletes can be complex and confusing at times. In this workshop, learn how the institute of motion takes a interdependent view of how to program in order to maximize out comes while addressing all aspects which make up effective training. This roadmap is a guide to fitness professionals which allows consideration of mobility, stability, force generation, and timing. It also provides direction on choosing certain pieces of equipment and when.

  • Learn how the muscles, fascia, bones, and nerves operate effectively.
  • To assimilate the four quadrants of the IOM program design into programming for client.
  • Put the four quadrants into practice using existing equipment that is already at your disposal.
  • Map the four quadrants to a periodized model for clients.
