We are all taught that muscles contract and relax. They get tight, relax, and produce force. This is true, but it’s not the whole story. We were all taught to strengthen the weak and stretch the tight, but we forgot to ask simple questions, like WHY is it weak, and WHY is it tight?
Let’s use tight hip flexors as an example. Everyone has them, and everyone spends hours trying to stretch them out or find a better way of stretching them. All this stretching provides short term relief, but doesn’t solve the problem. Is the answer more of the same, or changing how we think about the body?
The answer is that the hip flexor isn’t tight on its own. It’s tight for a reason. It’s up to you to find out what that reason is.
It was a necessary step for me to learn how to work successfully with a wide array of injuries, conditions and developmental issues in order to take on everyone possible who could benefit from my help.
The funny thing is, they need the same kind of movement coaching and progression that elite athletes need.
This is a workshop that goes through the basics that every trainer should know about injury post-rehab before working with their clients. It covers the most common conditions of the shoulder, hip, knee and spine, and gives directions on what to do and more importantly, what not to do with the specific injuries. Each section goes through pertinent anatomical information, what adaptations occur with each injury, how to ess and determine who can and cannot begin training, and how to train it to get the best results safely and effectively.
The concepts contained in Post Rehab Essentials have helped me get the following results for clients:
In addition, I will also show how most common neck, shoulder and low back issues are directly related to breathing, and what to do about it
I will also show you the only three core training exercises anyone will ever need to build a powerful and functional spine

I’ve changed roughly 70% of the content of the old version to the new version to reflect the current state of research and concepts that have shown to generate far superior results for clients, while also being easier to digest and understand. While the body remains the same, this is looking at it through a completely different window.
“When I first met Dean at a small conference in Edmonton a few years back, I knew he was what the fitness industry needed. His experience and knowledge when it came to understanding the spectrum of injury to performance is one of a kind. Over the years it has been great to see him share all he knows in his blog, in the Muscle Imbalances Revealed series and in the Ultimate Training Guide for Cancer Survivors.
If you are a fitness professionals and if any of your clients have new or old injuries, you have to get, watch and apply everything in Post Rehab Essentials.”
Dean does a great job of explaining the causes and treatments for most common injuries that are seen in everyday people. His presentation is top-shelf and he really comes across as a great educator.”
Dean is a wealth of knowledge and information that I’ve personally used to help my clients and myself.
The best part is the ability to deliver it in a manner that is simple to understand but not overly distilled till content is lost.
