As personal trainers, it’s never our role to diagnose pain. However, when working with the general population we will regularly encounter clients with aches, pains and niggling injuries that require management and exercise modification. Working alongside the relevant medical professional, this course is designed to help you better understand modifiable principles such as volume, intensity, force management and exercise modification to help your clients work around pain (where possible) and continue to move towards their goals whilst staying within our scope of practice. This course is not about rehabilitating clients post-injury, it’s about understanding how we can help clients continue to exercise and do the things they love in the presence of everyday aches and pains. Not only will we explore these principles, but we have also provided you with a library of POSSIBLY suitable exercises for clients with common aches, pains or injuries. We should note there is rarely, if ever, a “best” exercise for pain management. Sometimes exercises can be modified, and other times they may need to be removed completely. It is therefore important to understand some of the underlying principles before we select the appropriate methods (exercises) from the library. Before undertaking this course please remember your first duty as a personal trainer is to DO NO HARM. Pain is a complex topic and, to reiterate, your role as a trainer is never to diagnose pain. If pain is persistent in a client do your due diligence and refer out to a trusted medical professional in your network, then work alongside that professional by utilising the principles outlined in this course to help keep your client active despite their pain or niggle.

    I struggle to concentrate on video courses but Gregg really helps you to stay focused with visual aid and simple summaries. I was turning away a lot of business until I got told if you carry on like this you won't have business left since almost everyone has some sort of injury. I'm a lot more confident after completing this course.

    Such a good course with buckets of easy to follow information. I’m sure it won’t all sink in however the quizzes are each section helped, and I’m 100% sure I’ll be using the PDF’s for years to come!!

    Thank you, first course and if I was ever in any doubt you blew that out of the water!!
