This webinar is designed to understand the development of the diaphragm and pelvic floor muscles (PFM) as it relates to core function and continence in children. Special needs children or those with musculoskeletal asymmetries frequently have a weak core, postural compensations and develop poor bowel and bladder habits. 

Did you ever consider activating a child's pelvic floor musculature in order to increase their core strength and control, and improve their functional ability? 

Are you able to define what correct core activation is? Learn how to connect the ribcage, the diaphragm, and the pelvic floor for proper core activation. 

This seminar includes instruction in anatomy and development of the diaphragm and its relationship to the pelvic floor/core. 

Focus on assessment and treatment of the core/breathing and the PFM in a school-based setting will be provided. This includes how to identify constipation and/or dysfunctional voiding habits and understanding how managing constipation can improve posture core control and breathing

Learning outcomes/objectives:

Upon completion of this continuing education seminar, participants will be able to: 

~List 2 muscles groups and describe 3 functions of the pelvic floor 

~Understand the development of normal urinary control in pediatrics 

~Evaluate the effects of posture and positioning on pelvic floor and transverse abdominis muscle recruitment and relaxation. 

~Perform verbal instruction of pelvic floor activation 

~Perform 3 different diaphragmatic breathing techniques for pediatric patients including diastasis rectus abdominis assessment with examples of core activation.
