An Evidence-Based Practice Solution for Spinal Health, Stabilization, & Posture
The thorax is a vital component of spinal function, as the center of trunk rotation. Its function is significant in shifting weight from lower extremities (LE) and upper extremities (UE) through regions of the spine. It is a prime base for muscle and fascial connections that affect the cervical/ UE and lumbo/pelvic/LE regions. The diaphragm's dual functions are in posture and respiration. Its muscular and neurological connections to the lumbar spine, abdominals, and pelvic floor, along with its ability to maintain intra-abdominal pressure, are both vital for spinal stability and functional posture.
Dysfunction of the respiratory complex, trunk muscular imbalances, muscular inhibition and weakness, myofascial restrictions, loss of axial rotation, and chronic hyperventilation all have significant effects on posture, trunk stability, chronic pain, motion, and upper and lower extremity function.
This recording improves your knowledge and skill set regarding spinal health, stabilization, and posture. Ms. Dent demonstrates the vital integration of the thorax and diaphragm into a functional spinal program for long-term, successful patient outcomes. Participants will discover how normal breathing patterns are regained and maintained for spine health and overall patient well-being. Practice these techniques in an interactive, hands-on lab and leave with the confidence to immediately implement them into practice.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing the on-line post-test (80% passing score) and completing the evaluation).
