NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist

Here at Sportf.i.t. we  incorporate the National Academy of Sports Medicine’s advanced systematic theory to identify neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction.  The NASM  integrated approach uses  specific identifiable assessments which help to implement a strategic corrective plan and includes all factors such as flexibility, increasing strength and neuromuscular control and training in different environments and planes of motion.  This assessment guideline is specifically designed to follow the biomechanical, physiological and functional principles of the human movement system.


Four Strategies of the Corrective Exercise Continuum:

  1. Self Myofascial Release – releases tension or decreases activity of overactive neuromyofascial tissues. 
  2. Static Stretching – used to increase the extensibility, length and range of motion of neuromyofascial tissues.
  3. Activation Techniques – used to re-educate or increase activation of underactive (weak) tissues.
  4. Integration Techniques – used to retrain muscles using specific integrated dynamic movements.


Here are some typical injuries due to dysfunctional movements in the musculoskeletal system:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendinopathy           
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Patellar Tendinopathy
  • ACL injury
  • IT Band Tendonitis
  • Hamstring – Quadricep – Groin strain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Headaches
  • Shoulder injuries
  • S.I. Joint dysfunction
