His expertise is sought by governments, corporations, professional sports teams, and athletes worldwide. A complete description of a 5 stage program is provided.
Examples are provided for each stage within a back pain rehabilitation program and performance enhancement programs for athletes. Beginning with recognizing and re-patterning perturbed motor programs and progressing to enhancing stability/mobility, then endurance, the final stages continue with strength, power, and agility training. Each step is well illustrated and instructive. Added to this are general approaches to assess individual activities and sports demands and how to identify the critical components that need specific focus in an individual's back. Dr. McGill's style makes this thorough and rich resource easy to read.
