Description

When I sustained injuries during my time in the service, I realized elements were missing from my treatment. Progress was slow, and I knew there had to be a better way.

Many of my therapists isolated the evaluation and treatment to focus solely on the areas of pain.

We now know that acknowledging the biomechanical and functional role of the thoracic spine in neck, shoulder/back and hip dysfunction, leads to more insightful evaluations and better treatment options.

This concept of regional interdependence is the underutilized link to better outcomes. Thoracic spine contributions significantly impact the upper and lower extremity along with the upper and lower spine. We’ll explore a step-by-step process to integrate:

  • Global assessments that identify biomechanical deficits faster
  • Multimodal techniques to improve mobility, biomechanics, flexibility, and posture
  • Therapeutic exercise to decrease pain, stiffness, tightness
  • New ways to enhance manual therapy with kinesiology tape, mobilizations, postural restoration, soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release and more!

Go beyond traditional! Integrate the regional interdependence model today to improve mobility and functional stability of the thoracic spine and enhance your clinic outcomes!
