About the Book
The Essence of Core Stability
it’s role in functional rehabilitation!
Functional exercises have proven to be useful in the field of
physical therapy and rehabilitation and are aimed at improving
joint stability, neuromuscular control, and functional strength for
injured persons.Based on its success in rehabilitation, the concept of functional training has been applied to develop training programs for the improvement of athletic performance in various fitness settings. To date, however, there has been little or no research investigating the efficacy of functional training programs in the improvement of sport performance. I show in this book what I do to maintain an effective efficient core tone!
It has been an honor and a privilege to work with populations with special needs; I would like to extend my gratitude to those who have given me the time and space to comprehend the depth and fortitude necessary to function in daily life with special needs!
