AAPMD PT WEBINAR Connecting the Dots: Airway, Forward Head Posture and Pelvic Floor Disorders
Jennifer Poulin, PT, PRC
April 21, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
This webinar will discuss the implications of proper pelvic floor strength and position on forward head posture and airway disorders. Did you know that the incidence of neck pain and pelvic floor pain are closely correlated? The best way to ensure proper head and neck posture and position is to ensure patients understand how to properly breathe with their diaphragm. We posture ourselves to breathe. If that posture involves an FHP to keep an airway open, you can be sure there is also mal-positioned pelvic floor along with increased risk of developing neck pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.
Join Jen for a candid conversation about the importance of pelvic health in order to ensure a good airway position and neck posture. The pelvic floor gets a lot of attention in women’s health circles, but men too have a pelvic floor, and this needs to be considered to keep a neck in the proper position to reduce the incidence of airway disorders and sleep disorder breathing.
