The Sports Thorax - Connect The Whole Body & Optimize Performance with ConnectTherapy™ & the Thoracic Ring Approach™Dates: February 9-12, 2017
Location: Dr. Linda-Joy Lee International, North Vancouver BC, Canada
Cost: $1,325 + 5% GST (CAD)
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.

Treatment of PNS Centers of the Head and NeckLearn knowledge based treatment strategies devised through palpation and detailed understanding of anatomy and physiology of the head, neck and cranial structures. This information is particularly powerful when measured by neurohormonal function and responsiveness to practitioner intervention. Palpatory information will be discussed in relationship to embryological, physiological and pathological development and its use as a diagnostic tool for dysfunction. Discussion will include sinusitis, headache, related dental problems and past treatments, face, neck, and head pain and associated dysfunction, processes and sequelae.
