IF YOU CAN’T BREATHE, YOU CAN’T FUNCTION

Integrating Cardiopulmonary and Postural Control Strategies (Pediatric and Adult Populations)

Instructor: Mary Massery, PT, DPT, DSc

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course will challenge the practitioner to make a paradigm shift; acknowledging the importance of the cardiopulmonary system as an integral component of postural control. Every muscle of the trunk plays a dual role in postural control and respiration. This is the cornerstone for the speaker’s multi-system clinical approach to the evaluation and treatment of trunk and/or respiratory impairments. She will demonstrate how to integrate the cardiovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary and internal organ systems into every evaluation and intervention, as well as how to recognize physiologic causes or consequences that may accompany these motor dysfunctions. The speaker will show the participants how to effectively pair ventilatory strategies with specific movements in order to establish the pulmonary system as an asset rather than a liability for their patients, regardless of whether their original diagnoses were physiologic or physical. The emphasis of the presentation will be on developing and applying practical quick clinical solutions that are applicable for both pediatric and adult patients in all practice settings.
