Description

The diaphragm holds the key to training integrated functional movement.  Many MSK pain syndromes, rehab plateaus and performance issues are the result of faulty stabilization and movement patterns.  These compensatory strategies impact the quality of spinal stabilization and movement up and down the kinetic chain increasing stress/load on structures.  Assessing the quality of respiration, core stabilization and the ability to modulate both concurrently is critical for achieving optimal outcomes.  When you truly understand the core, your ability to impact movement patterns and dysfunction is greatly improved. Learn about these key functions and how to confidently assess them in your practice.
