I have a client who suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Do you have any information on what this is in terms of cause, onset, treatment and training tips and contraindications? I'm at a loss to find info on this.
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is a condition that is not very well understood, especially in the fitness environment. This is definitely a condition that a trainer should consult a medical professional and work in conjunction with their recommendations. He or she will be able to provide you with advice that directly pertains to your client and this condition. By building a rapport with your client’s medical practitioners, you can benefit from each others’ respective knowledge and the client benefits the most, not to mention this is a great way to build referrals for your own business.
