Course objectives:

Postural-locomotion function from a developmental perspective

Developmental kinesiology aspects for the ideal stereotype of the throwing motion

Basic core stabilization as a prerequisite for the locomotion pattern of throwing

The role of the diaphragm during both postural and respiratory function,  how it play's into throwing mechanics and efficiency

Correction and training of the proper breathing stereotype

The functional differentiation of the extremities for the thrower - "Reflex Turning" and supporting function for the ipsilateral pattern during the throwing motion

DNS Active Exercise positions to train core stabilization as a prerequisite for the ideal throwing stereotype

Biomechanical and developmental kinesiology principles applied to the throwing athlete

The most frequent types of musculoskeletal dysfunction resulting from non optimal throwing stereotypes and poor methodology of training

Manual treatment, mobility/strengthening, and coordination (Active Exercises) from the developmental perspective in order to prepare the throwing athlete for play
