Our Gray Institute online educational module entitled An Overview of Applied Functional Science™ is presented in three logical parts. Part One describes Applied Functional Science™ as the convergence and integration of the physical sciences, biological sciences, and behavioral sciences. These three sciences are individually defined and their significance to their contribution to Applied Functional Science™ is outlined. In Part One you will gain an appreciation for how Applied Functional Science™ takes us on a journey.
If you work in the field of physical therapy or athletic training, you’ve probably seen your fair share of ankle injuries. If you, yourself, live an active life style or participate in sports, you’ve probably experienced the pain of a severe ankle sprain. In this course, Gary Gray takes an in-depth look at the ankle. This is a practical and enjoyable course that explains and gives understanding to the ankle and its relationship to the rest of the body.
In only sixty minutes, this course of Fast Function digs deep into the core of rehabilitation, performance training, and injury prevention. Flexibility and mobility in terms of this current course explains two underappreciated keys to flexibility and mobility, the utilization of a three-dimensional approach and the importance of proprioceptors.
It seems that there is no more common or potentially devastating injury in sports than the torn ACL. But, what can be done, not so much to repair the torn ACL, but to prevent the injury from happening in the first place. For answers, we turn to one of Americas leaders in training and rehab, Gary Gray. In this course, Gary explores and explains the proper Function of the ACL.
This online course attacks the very challenging topic of resiliency and adaptability. Through a clear understanding of the topic and the relationship between the two ideas, this issue provides techniques to improve the body’s resiliency and to enhance its adaptability. The course explains the importance of Transformational Zones (where change of direction occurs) when training and rehabilitating to improve resiliency and adaptability, and discusses the strategies from which to approach daily tasks functionally.
Everybody has to lift things. Lift the baby, lift the groceries, and lift the cooler into the back of the minivan. The body was designed for lifting, from the legs to the hips, the feet, the spine, through the torso. So, why do so many injuries seem to come from lifting? In this course, Gary Gray will help us analyze the Chain Reaction® of lifting and help us to recognize lifting in an integrated way.
We live in a world filled with many ‘ologies,’ psychology, biology, neurology, physiology, and many others. Chances are you’ve yet to hear of squatology. In this course, Gary Gray explores this conceptual element of human function. Whether we sit down, walk, run, or lift, the process of squatting in its many forms is the foundation upon which much of the rest of human function is built. Gary will teach the importance of proper analysis, for without it, rehabilitation would be unsuccessful.
The online course at hand is Strength and Power in regards to rehabilitation and training. The importance of functional strategies regarding power training with emphasis on speed, loading and unloading, and Transformational Zones (where change of direction occurs) is explained in fine detail. Focus is sharpened by the utilization of Matrices (logical, three-dimensional exercises) for which to develop functional power.
