The Sports Thorax  Dr. Linda-Joy Lee International | Institute for Physiotherapy & Movement 

Physiotherapy Course in Auckland - New Zealand New Zealand   Location: Auckland renew Course Date: November 15-18, 2017

Physiotherapy Course Summary:
The Sports Thorax - Connect The Whole Body & Optimize Performance with ConnectTherapy™ & the Thoracic Ring Approach™ with Dr. LJ Lee

The thorax forms the largest region of the spine and trunk and is essential for respiration while ensuring effective transfer of loads through the kinetic chain for optimal whole body function and performance. Trunk rotation and rotational control are essential for performance in many functional and sports activities. While much “core stability” has focused around the lumbar spine and pelvis, the thorax is the centre of trunk rotation, and all of the abdominal muscles are innervated from the thorax. A dysfunctional thorax can drive asymmetrical abdominal function, making it difficult to achieve symmetry and balanced rotational control no matter what the cues or training activity.

Based on her clinical ideas and research work on the thorax over the past 15 years, Dr. LJ Lee has proposed multiple mechanisms by which a dysfunctional thorax can be the “Primary Driver” for pain and problems anywhere from your head to your toes – including pelvic girdle pain, groin pain / hip impingement, incontinence, disc injuries, lower extremity overuse syndromes such as Achilles tendinopathy, head and neck pain, and shoulder girdle dysfunction. Thus, a patient with a dysfunctional thorax can present with a wide variety of symptoms and functional problems.

On this 4-day course, you will learn the manual skills and clinical reasoning framework of the Thoracic Ring Approach and ConnectTherapy to determine when the thorax is or is not the primary driver for pain or reduced performance during whole body movements. These skills provide the base to examine the thoracic rings across a wide variety of meaningful tasks. Specific thoracic ring treatment techniques developed by LJ will be practiced, along with specific exercise training and program design for optimal neuromuscular control and loading of the thoracic rings. This 4-day version of the course allows more time for hands-on skill practice and more in-depth application of LJ’s new phases of treatment and exercise prescription to progress to high load function and activities requiring control with speed.
