This learning module explains in easy-to-understand terms how the whole body moves together as an integrated series of muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, and fascia; information that is essential for understanding the root causes of musculoskeletal imbalances. It will teach the prospective corrective exercise specialist about major muscle groups in detail, as well as specific muscle origins, insertions, and functions. You will also discover the unique approach of The BioMechanics Method® in regard to understanding how gravity and ground reaction forces change the way the body moves — knowledge that is imperative for designing effective corrective exercise programs.

This learning module builds upon the knowledge and skills learned in Modules 1 and 2, and introduces you to the most effective types of exercises for eliminating lower back, hip, shoulder, knee, neck, foot, and ankle dysfunction caused by common musculoskeletal imbalances. You will learn about self-myofascial release techniques that will enable you to alleviate restrictions in muscles and fascia, stretching exercises to help increase a client’s mobility and range of movement, and strengthening exercises to help people begin to move correctly and without limitations. You will also learn valuable strategies for regressing exercises when necessary, and then progressing exercises as your client’s abilities improve. Specific contraindications for each exercise type are also included to ensure safety and effectiveness as a corrective exercise specialist.
