He will explore factors related to persistent pain to prove why changing pain beliefs is a critical part of the recovery process and ultimately, changing pain. -- Why Corrective Exercises Are Misleading - Ian Schnarr, CSCS This seminar will look at the corrective exercise training procedure, and breakdown whether or not it is a reliable method of training for reducing injury and improving performance.
