The thoracic spine is like a crossroads – transmitting forces from the top down and also from the bottom up, while also playing a pivotal role in respiration. This region can be quite a challenge to assess, much less treat. Dr. Wolf will provide solutions for the most common complaints you face including:
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Low back pain
- Respiratory deficiencies
- Posture and position problems
Through a thorough discussion on the influencers of the thoracic spine, this recording will provide assessment and intervention strategies that will be helpful to all movement practitioners. You’ll have a better understanding of integration motion and motor control and glean new ideas for integrated treatment and intervention strategies.
