The Janda System of Evaluation and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance

The Janda System of Evaluation and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance™ course presents postural techniques, neurology, and functional capabilities applied to alleviate chronic musculoskeletal pain and promote greater functionality. Developed by Vladimir Janda, in contrast to a more traditional structural view; the Janda approach is functional, emphasizing the importance of the sensorimotor system in controlling movement and chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes from sports, occupational activities and daily living. This course offers illustrations, photos, and step-by-step instructions; guiding exercise professionals in developing appropriate exercise prescription and training programs.
