A major contributor to pelvic floor dysfunction is poor posture and deviances from neutral alignment in the skeletal system. This course delves into the changes that occur to the skeletal system and why muscle imbalances inhibit the ability to maintain a neutral spine, neutral pelvis and normal range of motion in the hips. These inhibitors increase complaints experienced by women who may have pelvic floor dysfunction and this can lead to inefficient tone of the pelvic floor. You will experience how to implement simple, unique methods in basic everyday postures to help clients regain neutral spine and neutral pelvis to improve pelvic health.
This course will prepare you with a thorough blend of the necessary components of advanced theory, advanced anatomy, physiology, observational skills and practical experience to implement posture and alignment screenings and offer corrective solutions for women experiencing complaints possibly due to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. You will be prepared with Lyne Methodology common sense tools and techniques enabling you to observe and address muscle imbalances by teaching your clients corrective postures and exercises to help them regain neutral spine and pelvis. Inhibited pelvic mobility, stability or the ability to tilt the pelvis (anteriorly, posteriorly or laterally) are contributors to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. Practicing consistent neutrality of the spine and pelvis leads to better muscle control of the pelvic floor, which in turn improves overall body mechanics both statically and dynamically during exercise and daily living. This will help to alleviate some complaints that women experience that are associated with pelvic floor dysfunction.
- Implement and teach what neutral spine and neutral pelvis mean and how skeletal movement can relate to pelvic floor dysfunction.
- Implement and teach the importance of regaining normal range of motion and joint action at the hip to increase pelvic mobility to improve pelvic floor activation.
- Develop observational skills to assess individual muscle imbalances and teach individual corrective postural changes to help clients regain neutral spine and pelvis in standing, sitting and sleeping postures.
- Execute and teach women to know whether to do pelvic floor exercises or to learn to relax the pelvic floor muscles.
- Execute effective cuing to help women learn how to do pelvic floor exercises.
