Course Description:
Respiration and the Thorax: Essential Tools for Recognizing and Treating Dysfunction in the Thorax and Respiratory System

The Thorax is a vital component of spinal function. It is the center of trunk rotation and the center of the respiratory system. The Thorax is a prime base for muscle and fascial connections that affect the cervical and lumbo/pelvic regions. It contains the diaphragm which is vital in the function of respiration and trunk stability. The diaphragm has intimate connections, muscularly and neurologically with the lumbar spine, cervical spine, abdominals and pelvic floor.
