Therapists learn a systematic movement based approach to neuromuscular re-education and are taught to observe and understand optimal and non-optimal movement strategies, and how these strategies correlate with pain and pathology. *Neuromotor training principles guide the therapeutic exercise selection and progressions. **Participants also learn how to facilitate the patient’s cognitive involvement in rehabilitation through cuing techniques and tactile facilitation.
