This lab intensive workshop (70% lab, 30% lecture) introduces the theory, research, and concepts of Czech physician Dr. Vladimir Janda (1928 - 2002).

Dr. Janda pioneered the concept of muscle imbalance syndromes, and developed a systematic evaluation and unique treatment approach to musculoskeletal pain syndromes. This workshop provides the scientific evidence to support the role of muscular imbalance in the pathogenesis of musculoskeletal pain. With functional pathologies, the actual cause of pain is rarely at the site of pain.

A systematic evaluation helps clinicians quickly determine the cause of pain to initiate specific treatment using a variety of techniques. Dr. Janda developed a specific proprioceptive exercise program, Sensorimotor Training (SMT), using inexpensive exercise equipment, ideal for clinical or home exercise programs.

“I’d like to thank Clare Frank for guiding me through Vladimir Janda’s functional approach and Pavel Kolar’s DNS approach, which helped integrate the concepts into my own practice. They made my rehabilitation and performance training programs holistic and efficient so I can quickly assess and deliver what my athletes need. And I can count on the outcomes.

“Clare understands where participants are in their learning progression and conducts the course so no one is left behind. I highly recommend her as an instructor and clinician.”
