WHAT IS NEUROMUSCULAR TRAINING?
Why is neuromuscular training/re-training beneficial for athlete's?
How does it impact an athlete?
Neuromuscular training includes the nervous system (strength, explosive power, plyometrics) and the muscular system (resistance training, muscular endurance).
Training/re-training will aid the athlete by:
Incorporating fundamental and sport-specific movements, strengthening, and conditioning activities.
Enhancing skill-related physical fitness components and prevents injuries.
Incorporating resistance, dynamic stability, balance, core strength, plyometric, agility exercises.
Teaches nerves how to make the muscles work in a way that is consistent with the best performance and lower injury risk.
WHEN IS NEUROMUSCULAR TRAINING/RE-TRAINING NECESSARY?
When should I incorporate training/re-training into my protocols?
During training programs to prevent time-loss injuries.
During training to teach the athletes' muscular systems to use proper protective mechanisms during sport.
After injury or surgery- re-training improves the ability to generate fast and optimal muscle firing patterns.
After injury to get the athlete back to sport more quickly and effectively.
WHY DOES AN ATHLETE NEED NEUROMUSCULAR TRAINING/RE-TRAINING?
How will training/re-training with Vizziq help my athletes?
Neuromuscular training will:
Increase dynamic joint stability and facilitate relearning of movement patterns and skills necessary during sports activities.
Increase stride length, gait speed, and trunk rotation.
Decrease the risk of injury including ACL tears through neuromuscular training/re-training.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends neuromuscular training programs for ACL injury reduction and can decrease the risk by as much as 72% in young women.
WHAT IS THE TRAINING/RE-TRAINING PROTOCOL FOR THE VIZZIQ?
How do my athletes' train with Vizziq?
The Vizziq Neuromuscular Trainer is a stand alone neuromuscular gait training tool:
Training can be done in almost any location from inside a clinic, to outside on a gravel path, or even on snow.
Evidence suggests using the Vizziq for 20 minutes 3x a week.
Vizziq's frame can be locked down into a stationary exercise station where stretches and exercises can be done in the home or while walking.

Help your athlete's get to, or remain in peak health related to their gait by training them to use proper gait mechanics and activate all three inherent fall defense mechanisms simultaneously. Return to sport quicker with Vizziq training.
