Description:

 

This advanced lecture and lab course is structured so that clinicians will gain an appreciation for the postural influences of: rib torsion, asymmetrical oblique strength, inconsistent breathing patterns, 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 the thorax. 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 such as shortness of breath, thoracic outlet syndrome, and shoulder dysfunction.

 

Objectives:

  • Recognize structural influences and breathing patterns of faulty postures.
  • Design a postural isolation and inhibition program that includes the integration of appropriate dynamics of respiration to reduce occupational, leisure, and sleep breathing dysfunction.
  • Release restrictive polyarticular chains and torsional patterns of the trunk through specific manual and non-manual orientation of ventilatory muscle.
  • Restore thoracic scapular force couples, rib alignment, and abdominal-diaphragm muscle integration for appropriate motor and sensory perceptual skill development of the upper extremities.

 

Course Tuition: 

Early Registration Fee: $495
(4 or more weeks prior to course)

Late Registration Fee: $525
(within 4 weeks of course)

Please register early. Courses will be canceled or rescheduled if fewer than 15 participants have registered by the early registration deadline of four weeks prior to the scheduled course date.
