Handling the Rib Cage: An Introduction

Course Description: This 2-day workshop has been designed for speech-language pathologists, physical therapists, and occupation therapists who have minimal experience in focusing on rib cage activity and its influence on respiratory, general movement, and oral-pharyngeal function in terms of the evaluation and treatment services they provide. Significant anatomical/kinesiological and developmental characterizes of typical rib cage activity will be reviewed. Atypical rib cage activity in infants and young children with neuromotor involvement will be discussed. Treatment strategies directed towards improving rib cage activity will be explored through group movement lab sessions.

 

Speaker: Rona Alexander, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, C/NDT, Speech-Language Pathologist

  • Identify significant anatomical and kinesiological characteristics of typical and atypical rib cage activity.
