This hour is one of a ten-hour live workshop. In this hour, Dr. Liebenson teaches how to assess respiration and the lower kinetic chain allowing the clinician to grade fundamental movements and eventually correct specific functional abnormalities. In addition, this hour covers the Magnificent Seven Functional Screen Assessment, factors that contribute to injury, various exercises; how to do them, what they test for, how to score them, and why to use them. It also gives inhalation and exhalation tests to evaluate respiratory patterns.
Faulty movement patterns can lead to chronic disease and instability in the average person and the elite athlete. This hour can be taken alone but would be best if taken in sequence with the entire course. In the 10-hour course, Dr. Liebenson teaches how to detect and ultimately correct these faulty movement patterns allowing the average person and the elite athlete to reach their full potential while reducing the risk of injury.
