Here are some of my most requested topics/discussions.
How to stay injury free this season
This session includes discussion of the most common injuries to various athletes and how to prevent these injuries using stretching and strengthening techniques, Active Release Technique and it’s effectiveness in treating running injuries
This session teaches individuals how to actively engage the core muscles safely, using various pieces of equipment and their own body weight. This is a very popular session as research has shown that increases in core stability does decrease common sports-relate injuries. There is also a focus on increasing spinal stability, which has been shown to effectively prevent common lower back injuries. The goal is to teach athletes how to train effectively to keep them safe during the season.
