If You Can't Breathe, You Can't Function - Integrating Cardiopulmonary and Postural Control Strategies in the Pediatric and Adult Populations

The 3-day lecture/lab is currently full. To be placed on a wait list please contact Marianne Mohary at 732-632-1570 or via email at marianne.mohary@hackensackmeridian.org. thank you.



This course will challenge the practitioner to make a paradigm shift; acknowledging the importance of the cardiopulmonary system as an integral component of postural control. Dr. Mary Massery will present a model of postural control (Soda Pop Can Model) that demonstrates how breathing mechanics are linked to motor and physiologic behaviors. This is the cornerstone for her multi-system clinical approach to the evaluation and treatment of trunk and/or respiratory impairments. She will demonstrate how to integrate the cardiovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary and internal organ systems into every evaluation and intervention, as well as how to recognize physiologic causes or consequences that may accompany these motor dysfunctions.

Dr. Massery will show the participants how to effectively pair ventilatory strategies with specific movements in order to establish the pulmonary system as an asset rather than a liability. Neuromotor breathing retraining techniques and manual assistive cough techniques will be highlighted in labs as well as other manual interventions. The emphasis of the presentation will be on developing and applying practical quick clinical solutions that are applicable for both pediatric and adult patients in all practice settings.
