You learn how to identify these bio-mechanical issues and use exercises (PODs – posture oriented drills) that target specific dysfunctional movements. Topics discussed include musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology, fundamental Kinesiology concepts related to movement, developmental posture control, breathing and the core and how eyes guide movement.
