Mary Massery’s LINKED: Breathing & Postural Control - LIVE WEBINAR- Two Half-Day Sessions

Education Resources, Inc.

Format(s):   Live Webinar
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy / Speech-Language
Contact Hours:   8
Registration Fee:   $229

Describe how trunk pressures link breathing and postural control using the Soda Pop Can Model.
Describe the multiple, simultaneous roles of the diaphragm as related to breathing, postural control, gastroesophageal reflux, constipation, and venous return.
Demonstrate the role of the vocal folds in normal postural stability responses (balance) and make the case for using speaking valves for patients with tracheostomies.
Contrast normal infant chest wall development to those with impaired breathing mechanics. Position patients for optimal physiological and biomechanical support of breathing with simple equipment (towels, pillows, etc.).
Use a ventilatory strategy algorithm presented in class to optimally match breathing with movements from bed mobility to athletic endeavors.
Apply concepts to a wide variety of patient populations from infancy to geriatrics.

This course, developed by Mary Massery, will challenge the practitioner to make a paradigm shift: connecting breathing mechanics and postural control with management of trunk pressures. Using Dr. Massery’s model of postural control (Soda Pop Can Model), the speaker will link breathing mechanics with motor and physiologic behaviors (a multi-system perspective). The speaker will present novel research demonstrating the role of vocal folds as postural stabilizers, extending the concept of “core stability” from the vocal folds on the top of the trunk to the pelvic floor on the bottom. Numerous interventions will be presented that use positioning and ventilatory strategies to optimize motor performance. Multiple patient cases will be presented throughout the course. The emphasis of the course will be on developing practical, quick clinical solutions for pediatric and adult patients in all practice settings.
