    Wednesday, 12:30-6:30pm
    Do your clients have chronic tension or pain? Do you have pain? A recent survey of personal trainers and group exercise instructors found that over 88% experience chronic pain. In fact, 80% of all orthopedic injuries are sports or exercise induced. Although the fitness model has evolved by adding mind-body concepts and functional exercises, injuries are occurring at an alarming rate. Neurofascial science must be added to current fitness practices to reverse this trend. New research has revealed the root cause of pain in active people—dehydrated connective tissue that leads to an unresponsive NeuroCore™ system. These issues cannot be resolved with current exercise protocols, yoga or Pilates techniques. Even in the field of manual therapy, only a few techniques directly treat the neurofascial system.
