About the Event
Scoliosis isn’t just a spinal issue, it is a total body pattern! Each pattern is unique and requires an individualized approach to make lasting changes in the body. How does this affect our pelvic floor?
In this workshop, we will discuss the three-dimensional nature of scoliosis, its etiology, diagnosis, progression, and treatment plan. Special focus will be given to idiopathic scoliosis and adult degenerative lumbar scoliosis. We will also discuss a three-dimensional treatment approach to create a stronger, more lengthened, and neutral alignment through customized exercise.
This workshop will focus on assessment of and how to identify scoliosis patterns and basic postural corrections, breathing techniques and exercises to begin realigning the body. Techniques may be used as part of a movement session or as homework for our clients.
How can we help to support the client through the realignment process and mitigate the progression of the curve...with realistic goals!
Workshop will include short lecture and lots of practical application:
Understanding of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis and Adult lumbar Scoliosis, feel the patterns in your body. How to assess scoliosis patterns – head to toe. Discuss the concept of tensegrity as it applies to scoliosis treatment. Assess the relationship of the pelvic and respiratory diaphragms and discuss the importance of realigning the diaphragms for improved stability and function. Apply simple postural cues to create a more neutral alignment. Perform specific breathing techniques, and restorative postures to help unwind scoliotic patterns and strengthen a more neutral alignment. Discuss positions and movements that should be avoided and why stretch and strengthen approaches may actually be detrimental to some people.
