306: Understanding Pain: The Muscle System's Role
My knee hurts when I walk down the stairs. I cannot squat due to knee pain. These are a few of the complaints we hear on a regular basis from our clients. As trainers, do we understand the muscular system's role in chronic pain and injury? In this session, we will take a look at the muscular considerations that must be addressed in various diagnoses such as patella femoral syndrome, hip degenerative joint disease and plantar fasciitis. Trainers will gain a better understanding of how to design exercises for clients that come to us with lower-body pain.
