with Sara Kooperman, Ruston Webb, Patrick Mummy
& Michael Hughes

Chronic back pain is a prevalent and debilitating condition that affects millions of people worldwide, often limiting mobility and reducing quality of life. In this webinar, we will explore innovative strategies for addressing chronic back pain by focusing on the kinetic chain – the interconnected system of muscles, joints, and movement patterns that influence spinal health. From assessing movement dysfunctions and identifying muscular imbalances to implementing targeted corrective exercises and movement patterns, we will explore a comprehensive approach to restoring balance and function to the kinetic chain, thereby alleviating pain and improving overall spinal health. Join us as we unlock the secrets of the kinetic chain and empower you to help your clients overcome chronic back pain and achieve lasting relief and resilience. Don’t miss this opportunity to elevate your practice and transform the lives of those you serve!

  • How does understanding the biomechanics of the kinetic chain help inform exercise selection and programming for clients with chronic back pain?
  • How can movement compensations impact spinal health and contribute to back pain, and what strategies can fitness professionals employ to identify and address these compensations?
  • What are some practical tips for integrating corrective exercises targeting the kinetic chain into a client’s workout routine, and how do you ensure adherence and progress?
  • Are there specific movement patterns or exercises that should be avoided or modified for clients with chronic back pain, and how do you determine individualized recommendations based on each client’s needs and limitations?
