Searching for Stability 2: Anatomy, Alignment and Anticipatory Postural Control

View Course at Star Institute


Searching for Stability 1 explored different systems with regards to their contribution to mature postural control. In Searching for Stability 2, we delve into the anatomy, architecture and recruitment of the diaphragm and pelvic floor and their relationship to mature postural control. The dynamic systems model continues to prove useful as we explore the connections between anticipatory postural control, continence and interoception. Finally, a practical exploration of 3 components of alignment will serve as a foundation for clinical assessment and treatment of anticipatory postural control.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the 2 functional components of the diaphragm and their contribution to respiration vs. GI function.
  • Explain basic mechanics of diaphragm function.
  • Discuss the relationship between the diaphragm and pelvic floor.
  • Discuss the connections between postural control, continence and interoception.
  • Assess 3 components of alignment in clients with different diagnoses.
