In this new edition, Joanne Elphinston introduces functional force management FFM as a concept for understanding the different control strategies needed between sports, how it influences training choice, and its relationship to injury prevention as well as performance. Packed with full-colour images to illustrate the techniques and concepts involved, Stability, Sport and Performance Movement provides a comprehensive chapter on analysing movement, followed by a progressive integrated programme of stability, mobility, coordination and balance to create the foundation for effective movement, from early activation through to higher level neuromuscular activities. Sample programmes and clinical examples help the reader to understand the application of this approach across a variety of sports. The techniques and philosophy within the book have been applied with international-level athletes in disciplines as diverse as swimming, badminton, gymnastics, karate, cycling, weight lifting, basketball, athletics, snow sports, football, golf, equestrian sports and tennis. However, they have been applied equally effectively by people of all ages and ability levels as they come to understand their bodies and learn to work with them systematically from sound foundations.

Subsequently, it developed as a mode of exercise training for health, fitness and sport. The scientific basis for traditional core stability exercise has recently been questioned and challenged, especially in relation to dynamic athletic performance. Reviews have called for clarity on what constitutes anatomy and function of the core, especially in healthy and uninjured people. Clinical research suggests that traditional core stability training is inappropriate for development of fitness for heath and sports performance. However, commonly used methods of measuring core stability in research do not reflect functional nature of core stability in uninjured, healthy and athletic populations. Recent reviews have proposed a more dynamic, whole body approach to training core stabilization, and research has begun to measure and report efficacy of these modes training. The purpose of this study was to assess extent to which these developments have informed people currently working and participating in sport.
