An Integrated Approach to Treatment of Patterned Thoraco-Abdominal Pathomechanics
"Posture and breathing have always been important. This gives me a new, better conceptual framework that addresses asymmetry."
See more testimonials below!
This advanced lecture and lab course is structured so that clinicians will gain an appreciation for the patterned respiration influences on: rib torsion, asymmetrical oblique strength, costal and crural function, habitual use of accessory respiratory musculature, and a positionally restricted diaphragm. The focus of this course will be to assess and restore polyarticular muscular chain function of both hemi-lateral thoraxes and their respective pleura. Treatment interventions including manual and non-manual techniques to restore reciprocal and alternating respiratory and rotational function of the thorax will be covered. Participants will be able to immediately apply PRI clinical assessment and intervention strategies when treating diagnoses that are related to undesirable airflow patterns, such as shortness of breath, thoracic outlet syndrome, and shoulder dysfunction.
