In this hands-on, practical book, Adam Wolf synthesizes his experiences in both the sports medicine and movement industries into a digestible, practical, and easy to understand introduction to integrated human movement while providing assessment and progression strategies along the way. REAL MOVEMENT is the first book to define true, integrated human motion, within the context of the latest motor control theory and apply it to real life patterns of movement. Whether you're a sports medicine or physical rehab professional, a corrective exercise or functional movement trainer, or just a movement enthusiast, this book is for you. The reader will gain an understanding that the site of injury typically isn't the cause of the injury and is often the result of something doing too much because something above or below isn't doing enough. With this in mind, the reader will explore specific ways to address these issues region-by-region. Throughout this book, Adam dives into understanding the interconnectedness of the body, within a framework where bones move, joints feel or perceive motion, and myofascia reacts to control the movement, all while being governed by the nervous system. REAL MOVEMENT's in-depth discussions include: * Qualities of integrated movement * Naming 3-D joint motion * Introduction to motor control theories * Current research on fascia and its influence on movement * Clinical considerations of the Lower Extremities * Clinical considerations of the Upper Extremities * Clinical considerations of the Thorax * Additional resources and readings lists at the end of each chapter * Detailed, accessible and easy to understand Exercise/Movement Library describing specific movements, exercises, progressions and regressions "We benefit from Adam's ability to synthesize the best approaches to a practical blend of techniques to create the most optimal environments for each individual" Dr. Gary Gray, PT, FAFS Founder of Applied Functional Science CEO, The Gray Institute "Anyone who has worked with Adam would initially characterize him as a "healer" and that would not remotely capture his brilliance. Adam is so much more than that, he intuitively understands that no modality, no method, nor procedure can outperform your body's ability to heal itself. Adam is a facilitator and teacher who guides his patients' intuitive abilities to heal themselves with a deep understanding between muscles, bones, nerves, tendons and spirit, and this book is a demonstration of that." Marc Davis 20 Year NBA Referee I read REAL Movement by Adam Wolf with great interest and excitement because of his integration of motor control and movement, a subject near and dear to me for the past 30 plus years. Those of us in the physical rehabilitation world must understand how the brain and the motor control system affect movement, as well as the roles of fascia, scars, kinetic chains and gait. The case studies demonstrate excellent clinical thinking, involving functional neurological assessments. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in the movement or rehab world David Weinstock Founder of NeuroKinetic Therapy "REAL Movement is the real deal A marvelous perspective on human motion that will change your view of movement" Dr. Perry Nickelston, DC, NKT, SFMA Founder, Stop Chasing Pain
