The development of movement starts with stabilisation of pelvis and ribcage. Therefore this region is exceptionally important when we try to learn any movement, especially when the point of fixation is away from body’s centre of mass or when we are moving our extremities.

Traditionally we weren’t taught about the ribcage as point of fixation, but this function of support is extremely important. If optimal fixation is not reached, there is no possibility for normal function of the limbs and body in general. Most of movement disorders are associated with lack of support.

During this one-day masterclass, we will analyse development of a child with a focus on ribcage function. We will study development of postural control, motor and respiratory systems during specific periods of life (1-3,3-6,6-9,9-12 months of age). We will also learn to evaluate the movement of adults, athletes and to understand how to choose the best exercises for their rehabilitation.

The masterclass will be very practical.

The course will be held in English, with translation to Lithuanian language.
