Karin Shelstad, ATC and Karen Jiran, MPT, PRC brought our attention to a fantastic article…“Musculoskeletal and neuromuscular interventions: a physical approach to cystic fibrosis” written by Mary Massery, PT, DPT. This is an article discussing the effects that early physical intervention can have on the physical development of children with CF. In this article, Massery provides a case study demonstrating how early intervention can play a vital role in slowing down the disease process. Although the case study was very interesting, I found the most informational area of this article to be found in Massery’s explanation of internal and external pressures on the thoracic and abdominal cavity by using a “soda pop” can analogy!
