To move well
it is often said that practice makes perfect, but when it comes to re-eduction and rehabilitation this is inaccurate. It is important to remember that it is not the quantity of exercise but the quality of the movement that makes the greatest improvement.
Only Perfect practice makes perfect
Too much too soon, too little too late, not enough soon enough and the wrong sort of exercise can all hinder recovery and even contribute to further injury. The order in which muscles fire (Kinetic chain) is important as is the use of correct movement planes - dogs are designed to move forwards!
Less is More
Poor movement quality for prolonged periods or as a result of fatigue will not produce the results that will be achieved by doing less but doing it well. It really is a case of "Less is More" in this instance. This is why it is so important to concentrate on enhancing "Natural Balanced Motion". Muscles work together to maintain balance and to initiate movement.
