Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

2012 Continuing Education Seminar Reviews

We take continuing education very seriously here.  As the year closes, it's a good chance to look back at the formal educational opportunities we've had in 2012...let's just say this was quite an epic year learning from true legends in our field!

Suck-Swallow-Breathe: The Origins of Advanced Motor Control

“Infant feeding is a complex process, requiring the precise coordination of sucking, swallowing, and breathing. The pharynx is the shared anatomic pathway for both swallowing and breathing; however, these two activities are mutually exclusive. Therefore, the pharynx must be continually reconfigured so that an infant can successfully eat and breathe at the same time” (Goldfield 2009)

Learning from Babies: Quadruped Stability

The videos tell the story with this one: the same stabilization patterns the baby employs before it embarks on its crawling adventure are the same stabilization patterns you can use with adults to groove rotary stability.

Even the video description provided by the parent is prescient ("She's up on her hands and knees, she's got the strength, and she's figured out forward motion. Now she just needs to trust her hands.")
