Shawn Sherman  
Shawn Sherman holds a degree in Exercise and Sport Science from Penn State University and operates a private practice in Western Springs, Illinois. He has developed the RESET® system. RESET® is a revolutionary motor control restoration system that pinpoints and eliminates the joint dysfunctions that cause us to compensate with our posture and movement. Over the course of our lives, stress causes our bodies to acquire joint dysfunctions which, in turn, causes us to compensate. In order to reap the full benefits of physical activity we need flawless posture and movement. RESET® removes the flaws and restores natural posture and movement.

Description:
Movement is complicated. Nerves, muscles, and bones communicate through different electrical signals to produce movement. When the signals are strong, joint actions are able to perform as part of an integrated whole to produce high quality movement. But stress, which can be physical, mental, emotional, chemical, or thermal is nature, weakens our signals. Weak signaling leads to joint action failure (intolerant to load). If a joint action cannot tolerate load, the body must find a way to work around the problem - this is called compensation. Once we compensate, movement quality is compromised.

The RESET® system identifies and addresses motor control deficits in order to optimize movement. Intolerant to load joint actions indicate poor tissue signaling. RESET® maximizes neurological motor signaling. This amazing system immediately removes compensation and makes all exercise initiatives better. Whether it’s a rehab, fitness, or performance program, restored motor control will automatically make it a better program.
