'At the end of the day, it's all about function.' - Dr. Craig Liebenson

Athletes fall away from competition and once-active individuals back off from sports and exercise due to faulty movement patterns and the discomfort these create.

Now, with a very special series of athletic development courses, presented by Hands-On Seminars and delivered by Dr. Craig Liebenson, physical therapists and fitness trainers can learn to return to patients their natural posture, core strength and athletic development.

Here is just a sampling of what physical therapists and fitness trainers will learn in this “Prague School to Athletic Development” series:

  • Developmental exercises for abdominals, diaphragm & pelvic floor
  • How to control intra-abdominal pressure
  • Utilize “hard-wired” programs to re-set your natural posture & release muscle tension automatically
  • Assessment of Faulty Movement Pattern
  • The Stability-Power Continuum & Safe Return to Activity/Sport (triple flexion for triple extension, movement prep)
  • The role of the diaphragm, pelvic floor & stabilization system in cylinder function

Dr. Craig Liebenson is Director of L.A. Sports and Spine and an Honorary Fellow of the Prague School of Manual Medicine & Rehabilitation.

He first began organizing programs in North America for Dr. Vladimir Janda and Dr. Karel Lewit beginning in 1987. Dr. Liebenson has facilitated programs with Prague School faculty in Prague, Sweden, Denmark, England, Australia and North America.
