Agenda
Anatomy and basic mechanics Associated impairments and conditions Treatment approaches to improve thoracic mobility Manual therapy techniques to improve thoracic mobility Self-mobilization techniques to improve thoracic mobility

Description
A lack of thoracic mobility can have broad clinical implications and evidence suggests addressing mobility in this region may be beneficial for those with shoulder, neck and lower back pain. However, this region can be challenging to treat. Enhancing mobility can be difficulty due to the intimate architecture of the anatomy. Also, improving mobility for patients can require awkward positions that may be challenging to assume. This course will discuss the anatomy and basic mechanics of the thoracic region and review current evidence for interventions targeting this region. Finally, practical manual therapy and self-mobilization concepts will be covered so the participant can take this information and apply it in practical way. Upon conclusion of this webinar the attendee will have a better understanding of how thoracic mobility can have a broach influence on many different patient cases and new ideas on how to address it clinically.
