2013 Seminar Reviews

One of my favorite posts last year was recapping the continuing education opportunities we had in 2012 (see 2012 Seminar Reviews).  Last year’s all star lineup was challenging to match, but 2013 was a great year in itself as we both headed off to our respective clinical programs.

Hand Position During Ground-Based Exercises

Hand position on the ground is a rarely discussed but vitally important topic for movement.  With a greater recent emphasis on ground-based exercise in many training systems, hand-to-ground interaction merits our close attention.  The hands are hardly a novel discovery, as the link between the hands and the brain is obvious to anyone with a sense of touch.  (Hand shaping is an important part of many skilled hand movements and includes a number of hand shapes (Sacrey 2010))

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, Sport II: Review and Recap
