Editors' note

“Movement” offers a fresh perspective on rehabilitation, conditioning, and fitness by providing a clear framework for fitness and rehabilitation professionals to work together. Author Gray Cook revisits natural developmental principles used by infants as they learn to walk, run, and climb, prompting a new understanding of motor learning, corrective exercise, and modern conditioning practices.

Key takeaways from this book include:

  • Measuring movement quality alongside quantity
  • Identifying dysfunctional patterns with the Functional Movement Screen
  • Understanding Selective Functional Movement Assessments for clinicians
  • Applying and choosing corrective strategies
  • Mapping movement patterns and recognizing movement as behavior, not just mechanics

This book goes beyond the anatomy of moving structures, helping readers comprehend authentic human movement and how the brain and body create and learn patterns. Modern dysfunctions arise from our sedentary lifestyles and incomplete approaches to exercise. By returning to movement principles, we can establish a more comprehensive exercise and rehabilitation model that starts with movement itself.
