Year 4 Practical: Diaphragmatic Treatments (Thoracic, Cervico-Thoracic, Pelvic) & Pelvic Tests

€2,250
Sept 17 - 22, 2022
8am to 5pm Dominican Republic

The human body has 4 main diaphragms. The relational balance between them normalizes the pressures and movements of all venous, arterial and lymphatic fluids, thus, hormonal functions.

1-4. Thoracic diaphragm: The fundamental muscle of respiration, but also one of the main muscles of the body with multiple fascial relations with all the abdominal, thoracic and pelvic viscera. More than 50 therapeutic techniques related to all these links, allow the therapist to thoroughly treat it.

2-4. Cervico-thoracic diaphragm: Both vertical (Stylian Diaphragm) and horizontal (Bourgery Diaphragm), the Cervico-thoracic Diaphragm has a role in both the posture of the cervical spine and the stability of the shoulder girdle. It is also related to the larynx, pharynx and thyroid.  Knowing how to normalize it is therefore fundamental.

3-4. Pelvic diaphragm: The stability of the pelvis, and therefore of the entire rachis, depends on the stability of the perineum.  This diaphragm manages the entire urogenital system. It is also is the floor of all the viscera of the body. During pregnancy and childbirth, the quality of its function is fundamental. It is necessary to know how to treat the hundred or so ligaments and muscles that compose it.
