The BioMechanics Method Corrective Exercise Specialist
This course is sold off-site by The Biomechanics Method (TBMM).
The BioMechanics Method Corrective Exercise Specialist course (TBMM-CES) is the corrective exercise specialist certification of choice for increasing numbers of health, fitness and exercise professionals. This is because recent research has found that 90% of people have muscle pain, joint dysfunction and movement limitations that affect their ability to exercise successfully. This is a problem that cannot be ignored so insightful professionals are expanding their musculoskeletal assessment, anatomy, corrective exercise selection and program design skills.

What Will You Learn?
The BioMechanics Method Corrective Exercise Specialist course is a comprehensive, step-by-step course that consists of five distinct, but interconnected educational modules. Online lessons featuring written information, 10+ hours of video instruction and demonstrations, client assessment forms, self-check activities, skill checks, and online tests ensure you will be able to readily apply the skills you have learned upon completion of the course.
The Fundamentals of Structural Assessment: Module 1
The Fundamentals of Structural Assessment is the first of the five learning modules that must be successfully completed in order to gain TBMM-CES status. This learning module teaches you a step-by-step process for conducting musculoskeletal assessments to help you identify common musculoskeletal imbalances that can cause muscle dysfunction, joint discomfort and movement limitations. You will learn verbal, visual, and hands-on techniques for assessing the feet and ankles, knees, lumbo-pelvic hip girdle, thoracic spine and shoulder girdle, and the neck and head. You will also learn how imbalances in one area of the body can cause problems in other areas.
Understanding Muscles and Movement: Module 2
This learning module explains in easy-to-understand terms how the whole body moves together as an integrated series of muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, and fascia; information that is essential for understanding the root causes of musculoskeletal imbalances. It will teach you about major muscle groups in detail, as well as specific muscle origins, insertions, and functions. You will also discover the unique approach of The BioMechanics Method in regard to understanding how gravity and ground reaction forces change the way the body moves — knowledge that is imperative for designing effective corrective exercise programs.
The Fundamentals of Corrective Exercise: Module 3
This learning module builds upon the knowledge and skills learned in Modules 1 and 2, and introduces you to the most effective types of exercises for eliminating lower back, hip, shoulder, knee, neck, foot, and ankle dysfunction caused by common musculoskeletal imbalances. You will learn about self-myofascial release techniques that will enable you to alleviate restrictions in muscles and fascia, stretching exercises to help increase a client’s mobility and range of movement, and strengthening exercises to help people begin to move correctly and without limitations. You will also learn valuable strategies for regressing exercises when necessary, and then progressing exercises as your client’s abilities improve. Specific contraindications included for each exercise type ensure safety and effectiveness.
The Complete Corrective Exercise Library: Module 4
This learning module contains an extensive library of the most effective corrective exercises for addressing common musculoskeletal imbalances that can cause pain and movement limitations. It includes details, explanations and demonstrations for almost 200 self-myofascial, stretching and strengthening exercises (including progressions, regressions and alternatives). You will learn the fundamental principles of each corrective exercise category and the key teaching tips for every exercise. This comprehensive collection of techniques serves as an exercise guide to help you to create programs that are most appropriate for your clients’ needs.
Corrective Exercise Program Design: Module 5
This learning module guides you through the corrective exercise program design process from start to finish, teaching you how to develop and use effective communication strategies when working with clients that have corrective exercise needs. Real-life case studies featuring actual clients demonstrate the step-by-step nature of The BioMechanics Method process. In addition to tying together the skills obtained in Modules 1-4, this final TBMM-CES learning module focuses on developing client communication skills, and allied networking and referral strategies so you can apply your skills within your scope of practice in the real world.
