Charlie Weingroff Training – Weingroff Training Rehab – Training vs Rehab
Physical therapist Charlie Weingroff’s idea for this lecture was to provide a more complete understanding and perspective of the common denominator of the trainable human system, and perhaps exploit or modify some of the methods people are comfortable using. The more contemporary we can get into musculoskeletal rehab and performance training, the more we skew to a neurological model. Remember: Training equals rehab; rehab equals training. In this commentary, Charlie Weingroff covers the full human system, and many of the ways we address its qualities and limitations.
“Ultimately, the nervous system is any part of the organs that allow for transmission of signal. It’s an exchange of volitional action or non-voluntary reactions on how a body does what it does, whether it’s movement or whether it’s homeostasis and just maintaining normal mechanisms of health and sustenance.” ~Charlie Weingroff

Thank you Charlie for a wonderful lecture addressing the neuroscience of movement and performance. Even though I’m part of the choir that loves hearing about the brain and the CNS with movement, I believe anyone interested in applying neuroscience into their work will appreciate this resource.

I will need to listen to this several times to appreciate and digest all the valuable information he shares. Many great, practical examples to help educate our patients and clients, especially about the nervous system. Brilliant stuff!
