Everything is changing in the healthcare industry. The cost of services is not sustainable necessitating change in delivery models, and exercise professionals are well-positioned to thrive in this new environment. Clients prefer a model of prevention and wellness over a model of disease management and are seeking health care professionals who can effectively provide excellent services for a reasonable price. To meet the demands of this landscape, general fitness programming alone is insufficient. Effective corrective exercise programming for clients who seek our help after injury or surgery, or for those who present to us with pain, requires that we are able function at the next level. The exercise professional need current, specific evidence-based assessment tools to accurately identify specific movement dysfunctions as the first step in designing focused, comprehensive, effective and individualized corrective exercise programs that effectively target impairments efficiently for optimal function.
