Physical activity is becoming an increasingly popular lifestyle choice as people are encouraged to make healthier choices. For most people, this means balancing exercise with a working day that typically requires them to be sitting for 10 to 12 hours which lessens the ability of the body to effectively take part in recreational and sporting activities, and leads to repetitive strain injuries, postural deviations and musculoskeletal problems (8,16,27). Therefore, the desire of the modern client to combine extended periods of inactivity with increasingly demanding exercise routines, such as marathon running, are becoming a growing challenge for personal trainers and sports coaches. Such issues occur because muscles have the tendency to become underactive or overactive when engaged by certain repetitive postures and activities (20,27). For example, sitting, driving or wearing high heels can encourage the ankle dorsiflexors to weaken, the plantarflexors to become overactive, while it is also suggested that there will be interrelated, global impairments and consequences of this at the more proximal joints such as the knees and hips (11,12,14,19,23,24,30). Achilles tendinopathy (1,31), plantar fasciitis (18) and shin splints (30,33) are some of the most common sports injuries of the ankle among runners and those participating in sports that involve jumping. As coaches, we shouldn’t be diagnosing injuries, but helping to prevent the occurrence of them, by looking for common lower extremity alignments, muscle weaknesses and movement deviations. This article focuses on the evaluation of movement, the scanning of misalignments and the introduction of corrective exercises using the NASM Corrective Exercise Continuum (Cex) (7), which is based on deactivation and activation techniques of the neuromyofactial tissue (7). Using CEx with my clients – in conjunction with body and postural awareness techniques – has enabled them to eliminate some musculoskeletal problems.
