Movement Direction Considerations
We will workshop each movement direction, the emphasis of the exercise, movement faults and cautions/contraindications. From the clients’ medical history and postural presentation we may choose to modify the exercises or exclude exercises.
The consideration of movement direction is useful when putting together a balanced class. Namely: flexion, extension, rotation, side flexion both in the trunk and peripherals. The layering of more complex movements should be integrated as the client progresses. The evaluation of how a client performs in a particular direction of movement informs us how we will facilitate improvements in the execution of the exercise.
