THE SUPERFICIAL BACK LINE
This myofascial chain connects the entire posterior surface of the body. The overall postural function of this sling is to support the body in full extension and to prevent the tendency to curl into a forward flexed position. Included in this chain are: short toe flexors, plantar fascia, achilles tendon, gastrocnemius, hamstrings, sacrotuberous ligament, sacrolumbar fascia, spinal erectors and the suboccipitals.
THE ARM CHAINS – SUPERFICIAL AND DEEP
THE SUPERFICIAL FRONT LINE
Designed to pull the front of the body up, from the top of toes to the neck this chain lifts and supports the skeletal parts that extend forward of the gravity line. This line protects the viscera that make up the ventral cavity. Includes: Toe extensors, tibialis anterior, anterior crural compartment, rectus femoris, vastii group, rectus abdominis, sternalis, sternochondral myofascia and the sternocleidomastoid.
THE ESSENTIALS – RELEASE & RESTORE
Based on Kathleen Keller’s nine years of practical teaching experience in physiotherapy clinics, this course concentrates on the muscles that most often need to be Released or Strengthened.
RELEASE: Learn basic Therapeutic Ball Release Techniques for various major muscles groups that could include but not limited to: Suboccipitals, Spinal Erectors, Feet, Pectorals, Gluteal Complex, IT Band, Quadriceps, Hamstrings, Gastrocnemius, Trapezius, Latissimus, Tricep, Bicep, Adductors, Rectus Abdominus, Thoracic Spine and SI Joint Mobilization. Therapeutic Ball Release techniques can be applied to almost any muscle in the body, even areas such as the Pelvic Floor and Massiter.
RESTORE: Balls are used to support spinous and transverse processes and the sacrum. With applied principals of neutral pelvis stabilization, strengthen the lumbo-pelvic core stabilizers and the global Deep Front Myofascial Line. Guide correct sequencing of the important deep neck flexors into cervical and thoracic flexion.
