Inner Circle Updates mike reinold inner circle

My Last webinar recording on “Working with the Hypermobile Athlete” is now available to watch. In this presentation, I’m joined with my colleague at Champion, Dave Tilley, to discuss our approach to working with hypermobile athletes.  Dave works with a lot of gymnasts, so has a great perspective on the topic.

This webinar will cover:

  • How do you assess for hypermobility, rather than just flexibility or soft tissue mobility
  • How does rehabilitation differ for the hypermobile athletes
  • The role of fatigue and capacity in working with hypermobility athletics
  • How we manage the fine line between hypermobility and instability
  • Inner Circle members click here to access the webinar
