Stability, Sport and Performance Movement, 2nd Edition

Stability, Sport and Performance Movement, 2nd edition, by Joanne Elphinston
Practical biomechanics and systematic training for movement efficiency and injury prevention.

In every sport, there are athletes who represent true technical excellence. Their movement seems effortless, controlled and efficient: they create and control forces in the most effective way.

Whether you are a coach, a rehabilitation professional or an athlete, understanding movement and its relationship to performance and health equips you with powerful practical knowledge.
In this second edition, Stability, Sport and Performance Movement provides tools for understanding and working with movement in simple effective ways.  User friendly tips uncover hidden physical barriers and unlock the potential for fluent effortless movement.
