Performing a thorough structural assessment will give you insight into how your client moves. Once you understand this, you will then be able to identify their limitations and/or compensation patterns. This revealing information is vital when designing exercise programs because it helps you identify those kinetic chains that need addressing, ultimately helping them to improve function and eliminate pain and injury. Participants in this highly experiential workshop will have the opportunity to practice these skills and techniques. A basic understanding of how to conduct structural assessments is recommended.
