If you can't breathe, you can't function. Integrating cardiopulmonary and postural control strategies in the pediatric population
Friday, November 10, 2017
12:30 PM - 5:30 PM
This is a 3 day course featuring Mary Massery, PT, DPT, DSc and Faculty.
This workshop gives providers information, resources and strategies that help them acknowledge the importance of the cardiopulmonary system as an integral component of postural control. Understanding how postural control and breathing mechanics link to motor and physiologic behaviors allows the clinician the means to integrate the cardiovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary and internal organ systems into every evaluation and intervention. Extensive lab work will teach the clinicians how to effectively pair ventilatory strategies with specific movements in order to establish the pulmonary system as an assist rather than a liability for their patients. The emphasis of this presentation will be on developing and applying practical quick clinical solutions that are applicable for pediatric patients in all pediatric settings.
Event will be held on the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center Campus.
