What is a Big Movement Rock?

Chuck Wolf

The big movement rocks consist of the foot and ankle complex, the hips, and the thoracic spine. Human movement is the culmination of a cascade of tri-plane motions resulting in a desired outcome, whatever that may be. Efficient motion of the big movement rocks improves efficiency of motion and will reduce the risk of injury.  Conversely, repeated incidence of improper motion in the big movement rocks will  significantly contribute to chronic injuries.
