Posture, Rehab & MCE – Pt 3 [PT]
[3 CEU HRS] From Functional Compensation to Structural Adaptation: The Cascade of Posture Breakdown
Posture, Rehab & MCE – Pt 3 [PT]
Posture breaks down with predictable patterns of functional compensations and structural adaptations, where neurologic facilitation and behavioral habits is reinforced by spirals of mechanical weakness and overuse.
Module 3 addresses postural low back and neck pain, with specific attention on strengthening diaphragmatic breathing patterns. Attentional focus exercises strengthen, refine and progress accurate control of core coupled whole body motion for changes people really feel.
Integrate active motion control retraining with the unique contributions of passive therapies such as spinal manipulation and muscular therapies. StrongPosture® education and demos systematically promote bio-mechanic understanding, along with an appreciation of the value of posture care for people living seated in a folded, tech society.
Patients love it
"Our patients love the StrongPosture program and we have it included in 80% of care plans." Thanks for such a solid program. ~Robert Thoma, DC
"Liking the course and so happy as a working mother of three I'm able to do it on my own time after the kids go to bed." ~Dr. Tobi Sheiker
Rehab protocols that work
"StrongPosture protocols are the perfect tool for stabilizing the spine and the core while teaching patterns of motion to train whole body control." ~Michael McMahan, LMT
