Do we actually have any evidence to support the breathing techniques taught in PT practice and in alternative movement approaches like Pilates and Yoga? Hear about the findings from a study that was conducted by Dr. Larry Cahalin, PhD, PT, CCS, cardiopulmonary certified specialist and professor at University of Miami, and Sherri Betz, PT, GCS, PMA®-CPT at the Pilates Method Alliance conference involving 61 subjects. We used the TIRE (Tests of Incremental Respiratory Endurance) to test all subjects looking for the strength and endurance of the diaphragm. We compared the subjects to normative data and also compared the focus on breathing emphasis in their Pilates practice. You'll be surprised at the results!
After the discussion, put research into practice in learning to identify the dominant breathing type in your patients, measure their lung function and understand how these findings might relate to their posture and core control. Discuss the benefits and detriments in breathing as taught in yoga, Pilates and other movement forms. Come to the meeting to learn some simple breathing assessments, treatments and exercise interventions to improve your treatment program effectiveness!

Minimum to attend for a PT/PTA is $40
Guest of PT/PTA is $30
