We are all athletes in some way; even the neighborhood walker must coordinate a series of complex neuromuscular patterns to be able to complete the task. Learning the skill of movement, be it running, jumping, decelerating and even breathing efficiently, is critical to building the athletic foundation, overcoming injury and ultimately reducing the risk of future injury.”
