Take the Brakes Off Movement—The Neural Edge
Perry Nickelston Neural Training – Understanding Movement Compensations – Why Doesn’t Corrective Exercise Work?
One of the most confusing parts about using corrective exercises comes when we try to figure out why a corrective works for one person, and doesn’t do anything for another person with the same movement issues. Other times, the corrective works, but it doesn’t stick — the problem comes back the next day. Why is that? In this lecture, Perry Nickelston, DC, covers the neural aspect of corrective work using the concept of ‘regress to progress’ and briefly explains why corrective exercise sometimes doesn’t work for some people with the same movements.
“Everyone has developed compensations over the course of their lives depending on what’s happened to them. Their adaptability is very personal, and you cannot cookie-cutter movement, cookie-cutter pain syndromes or compensations in why people do the things they do, move the way they do or look the way they do.”~Perry Nickelston
