LINKED: Breathing & Postural Control, Part-2 A Pediatric and Adult Lab Course (Day-2&3 of the 3-day Mary Massery BREATHING COURSE)


“LINKED Part-2” builds upon the foundational information presented in “LINKED Part-1”. This course, developed by Mary Massery, proposes a new definition of “core stability;” redefining it as the dynamic control of trunk pressures to optimize postural stability (balance). Dr. Massery’s novel “soda pop can model” links breathing mechanics to postural control using multi-system interactions. In Part-2, the focus shifts to assessing “normal” breathing patterns, and learning neuromotor breathing retraining techniques and manual assistive cough techniques during hands-on labs. Multiple clinical cases will be used to cement the concepts, as will a live patient demonstration (if available). The course is applicable for any pediatric or adult patient (or therapist) who breathes!
