ConnectTherapy & the Thorax with Dr. Linda-Joy Lee

These skills providethe 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 prescription and program design for optimal neuromuscular control and loading of hte 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.
