Description

The thoracic spine is like a crossroads – transmitting forces from the top down and also from the bottom up, while also playing a pivotal role in respiration.  This region can be quite a challenge to assess, much less treat.  Dr. Wolf will provide solutions for the most common complaints you face including: 

  • Neck pain 
  • Shoulder pain 
  • Low back pain 
  • Respiratory deficiencies 
  • Posture and position problems 

Through a thorough discussion on the influencers of the thoracic spine, this recording will provide assessment and intervention strategies that will be helpful to all movement practitioners.  You’ll have a better understanding of integration motion and motor control and glean new ideas for integrated treatment and intervention strategies.
