I think that that’s is plenty that you can potentially do and teach.I say potentially because it is really up to you to develop the skill set to do so.
If you are like the average trainer and you deal with the average client you are dealing with folks that suffer from all sorts of myofascial pains, whether it is the shoulder, hip, foot, etc. Much of what they will complain of will be a result of poor alignment either in their standing posture or in repetitious movements that they make. Either way, muscle imbalances are created and adhesions can form in the fascial system. With that being the being watered down version of what happens, what can we do about it?
We aren’t chiros, PTs, or any other sort of manual therapist, so we can’t really manipulate a person but that really is ok. When it comes down to it, most manipulations ate very temporary any way. What we do as trainers is change the length of muscle. I mean for a second that you asked your question, would you have any reservations or concerns about working with a client if they asked you
to help them get their bicep bigger? All that is, is just changing the length of a muscle, so we can certainly address imbalances.
With that being said, how we can address soft tissue pains is with structured self myofascial release techniques, stretching and integrated strength training exercises.
I say that there are potential ways that you can help, because your skill set needs to include your ability to assess any given individuals structure and design the most accurate corrective exercise plan. The exercises aren’t enough, you need to be able to illustrate the importance of keeping up with the plan as to fix muscle imbalances and alleviate pains.
hope this helps,
