Whether using exercise for rehabilitation or strength and conditioning the evidence supports correcting problems associated with how we use the muscles in a co-ordinated and functional way.
This involves retraining how the brain uses the muscles in the motor or movement patterns. We use imagery, Ultrasound feedback, EMG and video feedback to assist in this learning process.
Exercise done incorrectly can be harmful and cause pain.
