The concept of corrective exercise is not a new one, but A Common Sense Approach to Correcting Movement explores new paths to create positive changes that are focused on maintaining functional movement patterns. By beginning at the developmental sequence, the shared timeline that all humans follow in developing functions associated with locomotion and manipulation, correcting movement is emphasized in the same manner that it was initially formed. Has the individual lost the movement? Or have they only forgotten a pattern they once had? Should we attempt to recreate that which can be remembered? Can a strategic action bring back a movement memory?

1. Introduction to Correcting Movement

Changing movement is not as simple as finding a problem and prescribing an exercise. The way you choose an exercise and the way you communicate the exercise sets the path to movement change. In this chapter, learn the principles behind choosing an appropriate exercise for success in long-term movement adaptation.

2. The Three Es: Exposure, Experience, and Exercise

The recipe for long-term movement changes requires both client awareness and appropriate decision-making by the professional. The three Es provide a framework for identification of movement problems, recognition of opportunities for long-term learning, and application of movement into fitness.

3. Exercise Philosophy

Correctives chosen based on an individual's movement screen are intended to create a response to remind the individual how they once were capable of moving. It is important to understand the intent of an exercise and the long-term purpose.

4. Conclusion

Gray Cook returns to important points from throughout the course and provides key takeaways.
