Many people suffer from temporary or chronic musculoskeletal issues that cause pain and discomfort when performing even the simplest forms of physical activity. The BioMechanics Method for Corrective Exercise With Online Video is designed to help fitness professionals, athletic trainers, strength and conditioning specialists, and physical therapists to identify and correct underlying imbalances so their clients and patients can resume pain-free movement.

Written by Justin Price, creator of The BioMechanics Method and a former IDEA Health & Fitness Association Personal Trainer of the Year, The BioMechanics Method for Corrective Exercise provides a systematic approach for applying effective corrective exercise strategies to assess and address muscle and joint pain:

• Identify and assess common musculoskeletal imbalances

• Understand how those imbalances affect different structures of the body

• Learn about the various types of corrective exercises

• Select appropriate exercise strategies for a client’s circumstances

• Design a corrective exercise program that addresses the underlying cause or causes

To fully equip professionals with various options to address their clients’ needs, part IV of the text, Complete Corrective Exercise Library, contains more than 65 self-myofascial release, stretching, and strengthening exercises along with suggestions for exercise progressions and regressions. Each technique is supplemented with full-color photos, and additional illustrations and tables aid with proper execution. Plus, the companion online video features 36 clips that provide the opportunity to directly observe and follow along with the application of many of these remarkable assessment and exercise techniques.

The BioMechanics Method for Corrective Exercise also offers practical advice and tools to further enhance the skills learned from the text. Strategies and examples for communicating with clients are integrated throughout to facilitate effective consultations and proper cuing for both the assessments and exercises. Skill acquisition activities and self-checks in every chapter allow readers to practice and perfect the real-life application of their techniques. A case study pulls it all together to demonstrate how the entire process can be implemented, from assessment to program design.

Finally, to capitalize on the specialized skills that are developed by reading this text, the final section of the book is devoted to creating and managing a corrective exercise business. It covers information on networking and referral systems, tips for maintaining scope of practice, and marketing and promotion methods for attracting and retaining clients.

The practices outlined in The BioMechanics Method for Corrective Exercise have been proven successful by thousands of The BioMechanics Method Corrective Exercise Specialists around the world. Mastering the strategies and techniques in this book will enable health and fitness professionals to recognize potential causes of musculoskeletal imbalances and apply appropriate corrective exercises to swiftly eliminate pain and improve physical function.
