Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization Hockey

  • Basic core stabilization as a prerequisite for the locomotion pattern of skating
  • Developmental kinesiology aspects for the ideal stereotype of essential movements for hockey players
  • Balance and force transference strategies for skating locomotion patterns
  • Three levels of central sensory-motor control for ice hockey training
  • Cortical function – its importance for hockey; peripheral vision – rival’s position estimation to fight for a puck, vestibular function for orientation at the ice field; proprioception and somatognosis to prevent repetitive strain and overload injuries
  • Cortical function integration within hockey training – cuing for subcortical and cortical postural-locomotion and stabilization strategies
  • Ice hockey goalie movements – correlations with a developmental patterns
  • The role of the diaphragm during both postural and respiratory function, how it play’s into skating and shooting mechanics and efficiency
  • The functional differentiation of the extremities for the skater – stepping forward and supporting function for the contralateral pattern during the skating motion and ipsilateral pattern for shooting motion
  • DNS active exercise positions to train core stabilization as a prerequisite for the ideal skating/shooting stereotype
  • Biomechanical and developmental kinesiology principles applied to the skating athlete
  • The most frequent types of musculoskeletal dysfunction resulting from non optimal ice hockey stereotypes and poor methodology of training: ideas for functional diagnosis and treatment and sport enhancement
  • Hockey trauma – the most common mechanisms: collisions and crashes versus repetitive strain injures and overloading; brain concussion consequences
  • Mobility/strengthening, and coordination (Active Exercises) from the developmental perspective in order to prepare the hockey player for sport training and play
