Most people today live a sedentary lifestyle, sitting for 10 to 12 hours a day. Consequently they become less and less conditioned and equipped to take part in recreational and sports activities in or outdoors. Technological advances mean we are required to move less and less, leading to postural deviations. Some muscles have the tendency to become underactive and others to become overactive (Kendall et al, 2005, Page, 2010). Physical inactivity is increasing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) (Holth, 2008, Page, 2010, Davies, 2014). This means that working with today’s typical client and athlete is becoming increasingly challenging for personal trainers and sports coaches. The NASM Corrective Exercise Continuum (CEx) is a systematic, corrective programme that is based on deactivation and activation techniques of the neuromyofactial tissue. It is widely used in the USA and the UK. Its use has also been present in Hungary. Using this system with my clients has enabled them to eliminate minor MSDs and keep major MSDs under control. I use the CEx system in conjunction with body and postural awareness techniques that I will share over the course of the next four articles, in today’s article I would like to introduce the system and the reasons behind its use. My overall aim in this series is to draw attention to some movement and range of motion (ROM) dysfunctions that are warning signs of potential MSDs. In line with the CEx system, I will suggest some easy to implement techniques and exercises to improve muscle quality and activity, thereby reducing the risk of injuries outdoors or in the gym that can be used safely by the clients as well.
