Online – Spinal Revolution anatomy workshop
What do you when you are about to start a class and someone says i have scoliosis. Or you are half way through the class and someones neck pain is aggravated or they feel dizzy.
Most movement teachers are not doctors, but we are asked advice on a range of medical conditions and we should have some knowledge of the most common ones so we are aware of what the condition is, and how it will affect every person differently.
Any book that says do this asana or exercise for neck pain should not, learn how to read body maps and and give individual modifications to clients both in group and private programming. If you have clients turning up to your sessions, with scoliosis, kyphosis, sternosis, prolapsed disc, sciatica, spondylosis and neck problems this course is for you.With 76% of back surgeries failing more and more people are turning to movement therapies to help alleviate pain. Low back pain is very common. Fortunately, most people find that it only lasts a few days or weeks. The exact cause of low back pain is often difficult to find. Tension, soreness and/or stiffness are common symptoms. Joints, connective tissue and discs may contribute to the symptoms. The thoracic spine is built for rotation, flexion, and extension. It is highly mobile – or, rather, it has the potential for lots of mobility. Because of its mobility, the thoracic spine must be used, must be moved. But it has to be known. If people are unable to visualize and feel the movement of the thoracic spine, or if they’re unable to even grasp the concept of its existence, they’ll just attempt to twist, rotate, flex, and bend with something familiar to them: the lumbar spine. That’s bad news. A movement system that gently works the entire body opening energy pathways through rhythmic, spiralling movements.
This workshop is open to Yoga/Pilates teachers, Movement/Manual therapists, Physios, Chiropractors, Osteopaths and weekend warriors.
