Almost everyone will experience neck or back pain at some point in their lives. Treating neck and back pain resulting from postural stress and instability requires a multifaceted approach. We live in a dynamic environment and it is critical that we function in this environment in an effective and efficient manner. As clinicians we must appreciate and consider the importance of integrating mobility and stability principles when treating this population. The axial spine is the center of human movement and has considerable influence on the functioning of both the upper and lower extremities. This course takes an in depth look at the two most critical components of human movement which include mobility and stability. Mobility in this context is concerned with how people move and how movement impairments may influence functional patterns. The other component of axial function is stability. This concept refers to muscular control, strength and endurance surrounding the axial spine, which facilitates functional power in a dynamic environment. This hands on intensive course will teach you to properly assess impaired movement patterns followed by treatment concepts focusing on corrective strategies and other facilitation techniques to enhance the quality of movement. These concepts are then integrated into a practical context so the attendee can quickly incorporate them into a treatment plan designed for a diverse patient population. Upon conclusion of the course participants will have a solid understanding of how axial movement influences functional abilities along with corrective strategies, which can improve outcomes.
