    The National Academy of Sports Medicine developed the “Corrective Exercise Strategies for Basketball” course in partnership with the National Basketball Athletic Trainers Association (NBATA).

    NASM serves as the official provider of sports medicine education for the NBATA, where the majority of NBA athletic trainers hold the NASM Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) and/or Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) advanced specialization. 

    The course material offers a systematic assessment and advanced corrective exercise strategy to correct common lower extremity dysfunctions seen in basketball.    

    Course content:

    • Human movement dysfunction
    • Human movement science
    • Common lower extremity and torso movement compensations (e.g., feet turn out/flatten, knees move inward, excessive forward lean)
    • Assessment techniques (e.g., Overhead Squat, Single-leg Squat, Goniometric Measurement, Manual Muscle Testing)
    • Corrective strategies using the traditional corrective exercise continuum model (e.g., inhibit, lengthen, activate, integrate)
    • Advanced techniques (e.g., soft tissue release, myopractic techniques, neuromuscular stretching, positional isometrics)
    • *Note Corrective Exercise Strategies for Basketball candidates must have one of the following professional titles: Athletic Trainer, Chiropractor, Licensed Massage Therapist, or Physical Therapist
