During this (one-hour) session, we will evaluate your posture and movement strategies, as well as muscle strength and recruitment patterns of your trunk and pelvic floor muscles. We will advise you on proper form for exercises. We will also advise you which activities to accentuate, and which to avoid in order to optimize health and function moving forward.
