Infrapubic Angle, Manual Ribcage Work, and Graded Exposure – Movement Debrief Episode 60

Movement Debrief Episode 60 is in the books. Below is a copy of the video for your viewing pleasure, and audio if you can’t stand looking at me. Here is the set list: What is the relationship between the infrasternal and infrapubic angles? What are some key muscles to consider in the various infrapubic angle presentations? What movement strategies should be focused on to restore infrapubic angle variability? Is there value in manual ribcage work to increase expansion? What type of techniques do I use to improve ribcage expansion? What is graded exposure? What is my opinion on graded exposure? Do people in persistent pain have to push through pain during movement? If you want to watch these live, add me on Facebook or Instagram. They air every Wednesday at 7pm CST.

Learn Normal Respiratory Mechanics from the Human Matrix Manual

Do you… Have patients who hurt multiple areas and are unsure where to start? Have training clients who can’t perform the exercises you want to despite extensive coaching? Want to maximize your client’s movement capabilities better than ever before? Want to know why incorporating breathing into your skillset is exceedingly important? Then welcome to Human Matrix: The Code for Maximizing Health and Performance. A course where you will develop a thorough understanding of how to systemically view and affect movement. By entering the Matrix and affecting movement systemically, building up your client’s movement repertoire from the ground up better than ever before. What you’ll learn when you Enter the Human Matrix How to build a sound movement foundation to increase the exercise variations your clients and patients will be able to do. How to assess your client’s movement capabilities to make precise decisions for improving pain and movement quality.
