In this course, Dr. Ulm will cover:

  • Biomechanics and anatomy of the lumbar spine

  • Kinematics and anatomy of proper trunk stabilization

  • Pathomechanics of injury to the lumbar spine

  • Corrective exercises for common functional blocks

  • Proper cuing to get athletes to stabilize properly

  • When/how to use a belt properly

  • Proper lifting mechanics of common injurious exercises 

  • How to effectively triage lower back injuries

  • Of course lots and lots of "core" training exercises
