In the spring of 2004, I took a course called “The Janda Approach to Musculoskeletal Pain Syndromes”. It was a 2-day course and I was the only strength and conditioning coach there in a room full of Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers. The course was given by Physical Therapist Clare Frank. Although, I did feel that the information was way over my head at times, Clare was very helpful in helping me understand the concepts that were taught. I was very impressed with her passion that she has for Vladimir Janda’s work. I really learned a lot of information at that seminar and have been able to apply some of the concepts with my athletes.
Clare has written a book Assessment and Treatment of Muscle Imbalance: The Janda Approach. It is due out in late December. I really look forward to getting this book as I think it will be an excellent resource for any Strength and Conditioning Coach, Physical Therapist, Athletic Trainer, Massage Therapist, etc. Check out her site- www.Movementlinks.com.
