BOC Advanced Level
Diaphragmatic dysfunction has a profound influence on the health and wellness of our patients. Diaphragmatic dysfunction can be the result of many factors, including: phrenic nerve irritation, cranial somatic dysfunction — especially the temporal bone, deep fascial network, clavicles, hyoid and the upper 6 thoracic ribs and vertebra.
This class reviews all pertinent embryology, anatomy and physiology of the diaphragm.
Laboratory time with assessment and treatment will also be presented.
18 contact hours – 18 1-A hours anticipated – BOC Approved Provider #P8765 NCBTMB Approved Provider #775 AMBP School Member #1084335
