In this webinar, we will discuss the three dimensional nature of scoliosis, its etiology, diagnosis, progression and treatment. Special focus will be given to idiopathic scoliosis and degenerative lumbar scoliosis. We will also discuss a three dimensional treatment approach to create a stronger, more lengthened and neutral alignment through customized exercise and manual techniques.
We will discuss:
- Why traditional stretch and strengthen exercises may be detrimental to people with scoliosis.
- The concept of tensegrity as it applies to scoliosis treatment.
- How isometric contractions, ground reaction force, breathing and postural reflexes may be applied to treatment strategies.
- The application of myofascial techniques and touch cueing to enhance alignment.
- When to treat and when to refer.
Case studies will demonstrate how the principles may be applied to create individualized exercise and therapy programs which help clients unwind their patterns, reduce their pain and empower them to manage their scoliosis.
Sunday, January 3rd: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, US
