Functional Exercise Success: The Secret is in the Core!
Clinicians understand that lasting pain relief and truly improved fitness depend on core stability and peripheral mobility. But long-term results are elusive! It is generally agreed that to have peripheral mobility, you must have core stability. Functional exercise is any exercise which acknowledges this and engages the body for this express purpose.
Participants in this experiential and hands-on workshop observe (or act as test subjects!) as we use sEMG to explore the primary defensive bias governing the Central Nervous System, the body's true Core. Once we have observed this bias, which we'll call the "Twist," we discuss how it leads to the most common functional problems. Rather than focusing on targeting areas for strength or stability, participants learn to correct movement dysfunction by directing appropriate exercise toward the CNS. These methods can be easily learned and applied by athletic trainers and related health and fitness professionals, massage therapists, physical and occupational therapists — anyone who uses exercise as part or all of their program. Participants will leave this seminar equipped with new knowledge and strategies to help move clients and patients through the vital steps toward lasting function: improved balance, coordination, and effortless posture.

Five years after a severe back injury in 1980, DAVID LEMKE, NMT, sEMG Tech, began his apprenticeship as a massage therapist in Canada. After 10 years of successfully treating thousands of pain sufferers, he had a breakthrough when information from a kinesiological surface electromyography (sEMG) evaluation led him to discover that single manipulation freed a borderline frozen shoulder and eliminated nearly all the pain – and the results lasted. Mr. Lemke eventually developed a unique model of functional assessment using sEMG.
Since the 1990′s, his treatment has been relied on by top performing athletes, dancers and martial artists, those recovering from orthopedic surgeries, and generally stressed individuals. As a passionate interest, Mr. Lemke has enjoyed working with select special education teachers treating motor coordination problems in children diagnosed with learning disabilities. He is a Certified Dartfish Video Coach and uses slow motion video analysis of biomechanics in athletics and rehabilitation. He has used kinesiological sEMG (computer aided muscle analysis) in testing of exercise equipment, devices, and new treatment procedures as well as trained hundreds of specialized massage therapists for physical therapy and complementary healthcare clinics. Mr. Lemke was the primary consultant to Champions Sports Medicine (Dr. P.Z. Pearce, Ironman Medical Director, Spokane, WA ) in the creation of their Biomechanics lab.
