Often patients move in suboptimal patterns. This might be compensatory due to pain or it is just because they have originally learned the movement incorrectly. Frequently, they lack the strength or mobility to move correctly. Movement re-education involves retraining correct movement and muscle activation by using verbal and physical cues. This is usually done in a variety of positions, speeds, and loads. Frequently this is performed after manual therapy to maintain and utilize improvements in mobility.
