Description

Optimized alignment promotes the availability of individual components of the anticipatory core (Diaphragm, Pelvic Floor, TA and Multifidus) and augments their teamwork. The position of the ribcage relative to the pelvis contributes to maximized breath mechanics, core component teamwork and a balance of flexors/extensors. An assessment paradigm for evaluation of alignment, (including ribcage position) and corrective cueing appropriate to the pediatric population is presented.
