3D Movement Analysis & Pilates-Based Exercises for Chronic Back Pain & Degenerative Scoliosis

This session will focus on movement analysis that incorporates the principles of Pilates and postural alignment of the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex, as well as that of the upper quadrant.  Evaluate posture and movement based on muscle slings and myofascial lines.  Treat keystone areas with hands-on techniques, such as IASTM and dynamic cupping.  Learn specific, scoliosis and Pilates method-based exercises to rebalance and correct these malalignments beyond the basic back stabilization exercises.
