This course, developed by Mary Massery, proposes a new definition of “core stability;” redefining it as the dynamic control of trunk pressures to optimize postural stability (balance). Dr. Massery’s “soda pop can model” links breathing mechanics to postural control using multi-system interactions. The speaker presents novel research demonstrating the role of vocal folds as postural stabilizers, extending the concept of “core stability” from the vocal folds on the top of the trunk to the pelvic floor on the bottom. In Part-1, foundational information and quick interventions will be the focus (positioning and ventilatory strategies). Clinical cases will be used throughout the day to illustrate concepts. The course is applicable and for any pediatric or adult patient (or therapist) who breathes!
Participants are encouraged to follow up later with “LINKED Part-2,” a 13 hour in-person lab course, for assessment of “normal” breathing patterns, learning neuromotor breathing retraining techniques, and learning manual assistive cough techniques.
