Introduction to AIS and Neuromuscular Conditioning
This 1 day course is an introduction to Aaron Mattes’ modality of Active Isolated Stretching. We will start by learning some simple assessment techniques to evaluate dysfunction in the hips and shoulders before moving on to building practical protocols to improve joint range of motion and function. From an anatomical perspective we will be looking at the most common causes of pain and movement dysfunction, why they happen and how to cor-rect them. From a practical perspective: Which muscles to stretch, which to foam roll, which typically need acti-vation and which to strengthen.
