A new webinar series from Exertools and Training & Conditioning magazine aims to answer such questions as the brain’s role in rehab and the treatment of movement-related dysfunction.

The first two presentations have already occurred and are eligible for viewing on demand.

“Targeting the Brain During Rehab” features a talk by Dustin Grooms, PhD, ATC, CSCS, Assistant Professor in the Division of Athletic Training at Ohio University. Grooms discusses how athletic trainers can “rewire” the brain during rehab to get better return-to-play results.

In the second presentation, “The Movement System—Why it Matters,” Michael Voight, PT, DHSc, SCS, OCS, ATC, CSCS, FAPTA, Director of Sports Medicine at the Nashville Hip Institute and a Professor with Belmont University’s School of Physical Therapy, covers the steps needed to correct for movement dysfunction.

Up next, the series continues in the coming months with a host of important topics:
