- In this first course on anatomy and function, the student will be taught the anatomy and function of the respiratory system. There is no ying and yang in this course. The material in this course is based on valid evidence in the studies and current research.
Dysfunction of the respiratory complex, trunk muscular imbalances, muscular inhibition and weakness, myofascial restrictions, loss of axial rotation and chronic hyperventilation, all have significant effects on posture, trunk stability, chronic pain, upper extremity and lower extremity function and motion.
This seminar is the second of six seminars that will enable the student to connect the negative effects of dysfunction of respiration and generate answers on the management of these issues.
