Dustin Grooms is here to help you understand what the brain has to do with biomechanics. Also, what role does it play in the rehabilitation of injuries, discovering limiting factors, and improving performance. He’s also closely studying what therapies are most effective for post-concussion athletes. If the brain is the body’s computer, it’s safe to say that mechanics are helpless withouts it functioning optimally.

Dr Grooms presses the theme that when the mind ceases to learn new tasks, the body is soon to follow. This rings true through a myriad of populations but especially those who are suffering from traumatic brain injuries, neurological diseases, or significant injuries. Unilateral training and eccentrics are just the tip of the rehab iceberg that occurs mainly in the brain.  Find out what you can do to stimulate the mind and bod so that you are getting all the gainzz
