Corrective Exercise Certification Course

Fitness clients today, more than ever before, need help correcting movement dysfunctions that lead to pain and injury. The ISSA's Corrective Exercise Course will teach you how to identify and correct the most common movement dysfunctions, so you can help all your clients move better and get hurt less.

Movement dysfunctions are common today, thanks to a combination of sedentary lifestyles and trendy high-intensity workouts and sports. Your fitness clients go from hunching over devices to attempting extreme sports. The result is often multiple dysfunctions in how they move, reducing performance and increasing injury risk. But, with guided corrective exercises, many people can avoid the need to see a doctor or physical therapist.

The ISSA's Corrective Exercise Course will help you learn how to identify and correct the most common movement dysfunctions that you are likely to see in a wide range of clients, from the weekend warrior to the serious athlete. Both health care professionals and certified personal trainers can benefit from this course, learning more about how people move incorrectly and how to guide them to correct those dysfunctions.

In Section I, learn the anatomical, physiological, and neurological factors that contribute to human movement. Building on that knowledge, Section II will teach you how to apply it. You will learn how to identify the complex movement patterns that lead to injury and suboptimal performance and how to use evidence-backed interventions to correct movement dysfunctions, restore performance and reduce injury risk.

Mastering both the science behind movement dysfunctions and the skill of guiding corrective exercises will give you the additional qualifications needed to be one of the top trainers in the industry.
