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 restricted diaphragm. The focus of this course will be to “balance” polyarticular muscular chains through focused functional assessment of the upper-half. Integrated treatments using manual therapy and specific non-manual techniques to restore respiratory and rotational functions of the trunk will be covered. Participants will be able to immediately apply PRI clinical assessment and management skills when treating diagnosis such as “fibromyalgia”, thoracic outlet syndrome and shoulder dysfunction.

Register 30 days prior to course date for $50 off! Participation is limited to ensure a low faculty to student ratio. 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.
