Movement is a vivid discovery, a fundamental and explicit teaching in which the return to basics takes on a whole new meaning. In it, author Gray Cook crosses the lines between rehabilitation, conditioning and fitness, providing a clear model and a common language under which fitness and rehabilitation professionals can work together.
By using systematic logic and revisiting the natural developmental principals all infants employ as they learn to walk, run and climb, Gray forces a new look at motor learning, corrective exercise and modern conditioning practices. Rather, it serves a broader purpose to help the reader understand authentic human movement, and how the brain and body create and learn movement patterns.
Our modern dysfunctions are a product of our isolated and incomplete approaches to exercise imposed on our sedentary lifestyles.
A return to movement principles can create a more comprehensive exercise and rehabilitation model, a model that starts with movement.

Editorial Reviews Review Gray's premise is beautiful in its simplicity: Training movement can fix muscles, but training muscles rarely fixes movement. For the time invested, the FMS and its cousins are the best tools I've seen for producing bullet-proof athletes and pain-free non-athletes in record time.
Preparation is built on a systematic evaluation of everything we can control. This book uses a systematic approach to exercise and rehabilitation built on the fundamentals of authentic human movement. The FMS screening and assessment tools are very useful in establishing the baseline for our performance training system.
Then you download a new copy and enthusiastically start over. In the s it was Verkhoshansky and Siff's 'Supertraining. Once a decade comes out a book that you will keep reading, rereading, and crowding with notes until it falls apart. We have integrated many of Gray's movement principles and corrective strategies into our programs to help accomplish our mission of preserving and maintaining the Commander s combat power.
The founder of Functional Movement Systems, Cook lectures extensively on the concept of movement pattern screening and assessment. His work and ideas are at the forefront of fitness, conditioning, injury prevention and rehabilitation. His first book, Athletic Body in Balance, continues to be a bestseller, and his lecture and workshop instructional DVDs are leaders in the field of rehabilitation and training techniques for therapists, coaches and personal trainers.

I understand both how and why some people may be overwhelmed by this book. It is quite comprehensive and probably not suited for the beginning practitioner. For many, this work may raise more questions than it answers. However, this reformation of approach to fitness training and the healing arts is nothing short of genius.
Granted, as comprehensive as 'Movement' is, when you have finished reading you are not even half way down the rabbit hole. There is a series of tools available for you to begin to master the processes of correctives. Personally, after being a fitness professional for over 20 years I have thoroughly incorporated the concepts from this book and FMS certification into my practice.
I look forward to further research into the usage of the functional movement screen. Kudos to the author on his concepts and principles.
Tons of content, but all of it is simplified to achieve a single goal, to move our bodies. This not a book with a list of corrective exercises, nor does it have an anatomy map to pick on isolated muscles.
It's all about moving with full normal range of mothion in all joints, in all postures and positions. I would recomend this book to all trainers, PT's and coaches.
Who want their clients to move faster, move efficiently, move for longevity and for rehab. Its more complicated than that. Site of treatment, dose, depth, time, and a keen understanding of the underlying issues are all important considerations. Im not intimidated by tools that force me to think I welcome the challenge. Sometimes it seems as if advancements in technology are surpassing our ability to accurately diagnose.
But no matter how good the tools become, we still need to go to sniper school. Even general tools wont cut it if were not familiar with them, and if our crosshairs arent set on the right target with the right intention.
I believe that human interface with technology such as laser is still the weaker link. We must seek to understand the value of the tool, and be sure to incorporate it at the right time for the right reasons.
At my practice, our treatment approach consists of three primary phases, all of which are equally important. These phases, when performed in succession, provide the body the necessary roadmap for rehabilitation. I like to call them the Three Rs. We remove restrictions by engaging in therapy that reacquaints the body with its most natural movement. This is often in the form of a manual therapy, chiropractic adjustment, and dry needling.
We create a healthy environment for the body to heal. Performing well in this stage will both leverage our reset and prepare for new physiological programming. We incorporate this new programming through exercise, strengthening and conditioning.
Teach the body to avoid dysfunction and be aware of positive movement patterns.
Laser therapy works tremendously as a reinforcement tool within this model. During reinforcement, we focus on protection and correction. Protection is simply keeping the body from further harm, and correction is our most active stage as therapists. Our reset is enhanced, and we begin inputting into the system. This is where laser therapy, when applied correctly, has the biggest impact potential. Laser does an amazing job of helping the body through the inflammation process and creates an optimal healing environment.
Increased blood flow through the area nourishes the tissue and promotes healing. Laser therapy after reset helps with any soreness, bruising, or discomfort that results from manual manipulation. Laser therapy embodies the best of all modalities Ive had experience with.
Its focused and deep, and I can improve the physiology in an area in less time than anything else Ive experienced. Also, an added benefit is the ability to combine two stages reset and reinforce. When appropriate, I like to use a contact mode of operation with the laser.
A ball-type applicator in contact mode allows me to work with the tissue manually, while simultaneously delivering a therapeutic dose of energy.
