SPEAKER: NOELL ZWAHLEN, MS, NASM, CES, PES, CPT - Founder and CEO of Move for Sport and Life and Restorative Kinetics
TOPIC: "UNDERSTANDING OUR MACHINE: MOVEMENT AND DYSTONIA."
Noell studied Human Health and Performance emphasis in Rehabilitation Science at California University of Pennsylvania. She is a Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and has been in the exercise science industry for 15 years. A previous Downhill Mountain Bike and BMX racer, Noell suffered an injury which led her on the path to starting her business. She has also run a micro study on the effects of Biomechanical dysfunction on dystonia.
Noell’s goal is to help people avoid drugs and surgical procedures by correcting movement dysfunction that results in all types of chronic conditions and pains. If the body is balanced and working properly all types of physical goals are achievable. Looking at the body as a complete machine is the key in finding balance and correcting dysfunction that can lead to all types of symptomology. Most of the dysfunction they see, that creates some of the most complex conditions and chronic results, requires a full scope analysis that gives them the entire picture of how the body functions. Typical movement based therapies focus on the acute area and not the actual cause. These therapies are missing huge components that change what can be achieved. At Move for Sport and Life they do full static and dynamic biomechanical analysis that tell them the whole story of each individual. They can see which muscles are over-firing, under-firing, and what to use for stability and mobility patterns. By rebalancing the muscles and getting the brain to calculate new patterns, new stability and structural changes are achieved.

A VERY SPECIAL DONATION TO THE NSDA: “Carl Wagenfuehrer of Lanham Maryland, who passed away of June 7, 2015 was an avid supporter for spasmodic dysphonia research. Carl was very close friends with Paul Fowler and Jack Owens of San Diego, CA. When Paul was diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia in 2004, Carl became one of his strongest supporters and wanted to help. Over the years, he made numerous donations and traveled to San Diego over the years to attend multiple Juice Newton Benefit concerts that Paul hosted with Martha Murphy and the Dystonia Support & Advocacy Group of San Diego County. Carl’s biggest contribution came upon his death, when he left a portion of his estate to spasmodic dystonia research. These funds were just recently received and will help to continue the search for a cure for spasmodic dysphonia. Paul shared, ‘He was full of love and gratitude to those special around him. His love and support for all of those affected by spasmodic dysphonia will go on. Carl never lost sight of life and the importance to live each day to its fullest.’ We appreciate Carl’s generous support of our cause!”
