Assessment of function and co-ordination of breathing patterns. Common dysfunctional movement/compensatory patterns. Relationship of breathing pattern with stress responses in the body.

  • Hands on assessment and treatment - Concepts of hyper tonic verses hypotonic muscles and the functional implications. Trigger point release and neuromuscular release of major muscle groups and facia impacting the lower back.

  • Treatment planning - Normalisation of compensatory movement and breathing patterns. Strategies for treatment planning and home programs.

  • Lifestyle Causes - looking for the cause of the cause when analysing people’s lives and the contributing factors to low back pain, both acute and chronic.
