Human Movement Webinars

Interception : The Emotional Side of fascia

With Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

Mind body awareness is more complex than just kinesthetic and proprioceptive awareness. Research shows that we also have an emotional side to body awareness called interoception. Interoception or the emotional side of body awareness is actually linked to our myofascial system and makes up 80% of the peripheral nerves found in our fascia.

Join Dr Emily as she explores the emotional side to fascial fitness programs and how important this information is to all health and movement specialist.


Run Injury Free: Application of barefoot whole body vibration

With Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

With the constant stimulation of  from the ground up vibrations, running places a unique demand on the neuromuscular system.

Join Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist Dr Emily Splichal as she explores the benefit of barefoot vs shod whole body vibration (WBV) training and how utilization of the Naboso Technology Mat can further enhance neuro-stimulation before running. Listeners will gain a deeper understanding of tonic vibrational reflexes, different vibrational frequencies, programming and when barefoot is best.


Foot to Core sequencing : The foundation to human locomotion

With Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

The average adult takes between 5,000 - 8,000 steps a day with each foot contact being associated with 1 - 1.5 times our body weight in impact forces.

Join Podiatrist and Movement Specialist Dr Emily as she explores how the anticipation of impact forces and ground contact is the key to movement efficiency, optimal performance and injury prevention.

Take the concept of fascial tensioning, pre-activation training and neuro-sequencing to the next level with programming that will change your clients and athletes movement patterns forever. At the end of this webinar you will see gravity as your friend - not foe!


A Functional approach to the anterior pubic joint applications in abductor strains & athletic pubalgia

With Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

To date some of the most frustrating and frequently misdiagnosed injuries are those to the anterior pubic joint.

Join Human Movement Specialist Dr Emily Splichal as she takes a functional approach to chronic anterior pelvic pain and it's association with lumbopelvic hip micro-instability and delayed local stabilization pathways. Learn some of the common exercises and progressive programming Dr Emily uses with her patients as well as her own personal experience with athletic pubalgia.


Lumbar Lordosis : The evolutionary advantage for human locomotion

With Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

The human system seeks homeostasis and efficiency. These concepts carry over into walking and the evolution of bipedal locomotion.

Dr Emily explores how the unique spinal curvatures of the human spine - namely lumbar lordosis - are critical to the energy transfer characteristic of bipedal locomotion. Review the concept of the "spine engine" as it relates to gait and how thoracic spine mobility is essential to optimal function.


Optimizing Power at push off : High Gear vs low gear position

With Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

EBFA's focus on the great toe continues into our August webinar series as Dr Emily reviews the difference between a high gear and a low gear push-off and how optimizing push-off position influence power production.

Learn assessment techniques, common causes of altered push-off position and programming to restore optimal push-off position.


Understanding athletic pubalgia & pelvic imbalances in athletes

With Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

Often overlooked and misdiagnosed, pelvic and groin injuries have ended the career of many athletes. Commonly referred to as "sports hernia" or osteitis pubis, advances in diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive surgery have improved the correction and management of these musculoskeletal injuries.

Join Dr Emily as she explores the biomechanical and pathophysiological causes of pelvic imbalances in high performance athletes. Learn how fitness professionals and strength coaches can assess and integrate pelvic exercises to restore and optimize function with the pelvic joint.


Walking Gait Assessment the most functional movement assessment?

With Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

You assess your client's squat and lunge, but how do often do you assess their walk?

As one of the most functional movements we do everyday, walking should be the foundation to all functional movement screens. Join Dr Emily as she explores the benefits and power behind the walking gait assessment as a movement screen in the fitness industry. Learn some quick tips on how to get started assessing your client's walking gait assessment!
