Course Description:

This discussion will describe basic concepts of the Postural Restoration Institute and give practical applications for physical and occupational therapists to integrate breathing assessment and treatment into any rehabilitation program.  Individuals attending this course will be able to identify and recognize dominant patterns of breathing and how they contribute to common types of musculoskeletal, neurological and/or respiratory pathology. We will discuss how the spine’s movement is dependent on ribcage, pelvis and cranial position and how we can influence change through exercise and behavior modification. Additionally, this course will discuss specific mechanisms on how elevated stress and anxiety can contribute to posture and pain (and vise versa).


Program Objectives:
• Identify basic concepts of the Postural Restoration Institute and how this may differ from traditional approaches to rehabilitation
• Discover how to assess breathing using objective measurements utilized by the Postural Restoration Institute
• Describe the implications of breathing dysfunction and how it may be contributing to commonly treated pathologies and syndromes
• Introduce basic exercises and manual techniques designed to counter and correct common breathing patterns
