Back pain rates across the world remain alarmingly high, and clients are increasingly in search of health and fitness professionals who can help them improve their quality of life and decrease injury risk. By better understanding the risk factors that most people face, you can put yourself in a position to help prevent back pain while boosting your clients’ overall fitness levels.

In this course, you’ll learn a new, innovative training system that will enhance your programming by giving you a greater understanding of factors that cause back pain and ways to enhance spinal health. You’ll take an in-depth look at common spine injuries and risk factors, while learning a simple process for improving overall function and well-being so you can train around previous spine injuries, while preventing future ones from occurring.

Developed by Mitch Hauschildt, MA, ATC, CSCS, Prevention, Rehab, and Physical Performance Coordinator at Missouri State University, this course will provide you with an in-depth understanding of how common spine injuries occur and how to address them through carefully created exercise progressions—empowering you to enhance your skillset and reach the many clients looking to reduce or prevent back pain while improving their fitness.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Understand risk factors for spinal injuries and implement training principles important to spinal stability
  • Describe important anatomy and movement concepts related to spinal health
  • Prescribe exercise modifications appropriate for individuals with a history of spine injury
  • Integrate corrective strategies in all planes of motion


Excellent course, but I would have liked a little bit more written material during the demonstrations so that I could watch the videos without stopping to write everything down. All in all, it was a good review of exercises in the different planes of motion. Thank you very much for this informative class. It was worth my time.

I especially enjoyed the focus on neurological concepts concerning spinal health and movement.

This is categorically the best ACE CEC I've ever taken. Far and above the presentation of any other course. Super knowledgable instructor and super helpful information and new ways of thinking of the old stuff and brand new research. Get this guy again. A lot. Most of the ones are very soft science and imprecise. This one was the opposite.

I learned a lot from this course. The videos were not extremely long, which made it nice for retention of information-and for the flow of the course.
