This intermediate level, one-day course challenges the clinician to focus on coordinating breathing control and core stabilization to optimize functional mobility and performance. The Neuromuscular techniques that enhance the synergistic function between breathing patterns, stabilization and coordination can be applied to patients in a variety of settings from acute care to the pro athlete.
Clinicians will be presented with the information to assess and correct a variety of breathing patterns and core stabilization strategies to optimize the most efficient pattern for all patients and conditions. A few of concepts that will be taught and practiced during this lab based course include appropriate postural positioning, reflexive stabilization, isometric rotational stability, proprioceptive facilitation, irradiation, approximation, and core integration with prime movers. Applications of techniques will cover beginning core activation for the post-op or ICU patient in supine position all the way to the high level performance client utilizing asymmetric positions.
My experience is not limited to teaching. I’m an instructor, but also a trainer, mentor, staff developer and coach, and I can draw from all of these roles to respectfully challenge therapists’ thought processes and encourage them toward prescribing treatments uniquely suited to the needs of each patient.More Instructor Info
