Back pain affects 8 out of 10 people. The personal trainer is often left to bridge the gap between rehab and full function for life, work, and sport when it comes to back health. Where do you start? How do you progress? How do I know if this client is within my scope? This Zoominar will provide some clarity on these issues and more! Find out "what 's the hip got to do got to do with it" (say in a Tina Turner voice), why ankle mobility can help your back when cleaning the garage, and why making a back stronger may not make it better! Join us for 1.5 hours of edutainment to help people avenge (Yes I am a superhero fan!) their back pain! Note: this is a LIVE workshop and the recording will only be available to those who attend live.
