Level 1 - Full Spinal Control

Level I of Human Movement Education begins with learning Full Spinal Control, which is pivotal for proper human biomechanics in healthy and injured individuals alike. Full Spinal Control consists of three component pieces: Lumbopelvic Core Control, Scapulothoracic Control, and Cervical Spine Neutral Control. Each piece will be learned thoroughly and separately before moving to the next. Once all three pieces of spinal control are learned, they will be added back together to achieve Full Spinal Control.
