Webinar presented by: Lise Stolze, MPT, Scoliosis Therapist, Schroth BSPTS C2, SEAS 2 Educator
The 3-dimensional nature of scoliosis can produce asymmetrical forces at the hip and lower extremities that can accentuate curve compression. This 90-minute webinar focuses on the effect multi-planar spinal imbalance has on the kinetic chain and introduces corrective movement strategies to improve body alignment and reduce muscle imbalances at the hip, knee ankle and foot. This webinar is designed for health care practitioners, movement educators and those living with scoliosis who will benefit from a broader understanding of how the hip is the keystone in establishing the body’s “center line” to promote axial elongation.
Objectives: by the end of this webinar the student will:
1. Recognize how 3-dimensional spine imbalance affects proximal femoral acetabular forces
2. Understand how hip incongruences can lead to lower extremity dysfunction
3. Learn movement interventions to restore kinetic chain patterns
