Course Description: 

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 educational offering 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 iand gain the confidence to immediately implement them into practice.

 

Speaker: Debra Dent, BPT, Dip Manip PT. OCS, FCAMPT

The purpose/goal of this activity is to improve attendee’s knowledge and skill set regarding spinal health, stabilization, and posture and practice these techniques in an interactive, hands-on lab.

Objectives:

1. Analyze three clinical implications for various patient populations.
2. Describe the function of the diaphragm as it relates to the following three components of anatomy: posture, muscular relations, and stability of the spine.
3. Evaluate three musculoskeletal issues in respiratory dysfunction
4. Compare one sympathetic vs.one parasympathetic responses in neuromuscular control.
5. Articulate two pathologies related to less than optimal respiratory function.
6. Demonstrate two effective techniques to alter respiratory patterns and trunk core stability.
