Welcome to Part II of this series of Integrative Movement Insider (IMI)™ where we have been discussing the role of posture and corrective exercise in your general population clients.
As we discussed in Part I, we discussed 3 main concepts related to posture:
Posture is really just a snapshot of a person’s overall strategy.
Our goal is not to ‘fix’ one’s posture or to make posture look ‘perfect’.
Corrective exercise is an approach to helping your client develop a more optimal posture and ultimately a more optimal movement strategy.
One more important concept we discussed in the Part I is about not trying to discount or make some one else’s approach wrong if you don't agree with it.
Spend the bulk of your time making your system the best it can be for your clients and stop worrying about what other people are doing or saying.

In Part II of this series, I discuss how we help our general population clients use the fundamental movement patterns to develop and reinforce a more optimal postural strategy.
Using the client with a forward shoulder posture, I demonstrate how we integrate more ideal alignment into a pulling pattern – The Suspension or Inclined Row pattern – while minimizing the risk for developing shoulder, back, and neck tightness.
