Featuring a Clinical Workshop at the 2009 ACSM annual meeting, Core Strength Assessment in Runners provides an overview of how to assess and strengthen the five core muscles of the body. The DVD offers specific guidelines for assessing each muscle. This Clinical Workshop also reviews a comprehensive study that looks at the relationship between core strength and injuries. The results detail how weakness in core stability can have a negative impact on biomechanical factors, which, in turn, can result in injuries. In addition, the DVD explains how to use strengthening as a treatment modality when muscular weaknesses are identified.
