Guest Educator Webinars

Centration : Stabilizing the upper extremity

With Dr Evan Oscar

EBFA's exploration into grip strength continues as we invite Dr Evan Oscar, DC back to our educational webinar series.

Join Dr Oscar as he explores the concept of joint centration and how shoulder stability can greatly influence wrist function and grip strength. If you are new the concept of joint centration or looking to advance your understanding of shoulder & hand integration then you will not want to miss this webinar!

Join Kevin C Moore as he explores how performance and treatment might be advanced by supplementing the left/right anatomical model with a clockwise/counterclockwise force model.

 

The Asymmetrical advantage : Exploring the bilateral model of human movement

With Kevin C Moore

Have you ever wondered, if humans are bilateral, why do we have a "stronger side"?

Join Kevin C Moore as he explores how performance and treatment might be advanced by supplementing the left/right anatomical model with a clockwise/counterclockwise force model.

The webinar is a teaser for Kevin's presentations at the 2015 Barefoot Training Summit in Delhi, India.

 

The Abdominal obliques linchpins to optimal function and performance

With Dr Perry Nickelston

Dysfunctional obliques rarely if ever hurt, but they cause havoc in the system. Join Dr Perry of Stop Chasing Pain as he explores the role of the abdominal obliques in the movement subsystems of the body.

Learn the impact dysfunctional obliques have on gait patterning and fascial sling dynamics, as well as how they are linked to thoracic spine mobility restrictions and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Review the anatomical and functional role of the internal and external obliques and why the internal oblique should be considered part of the intrinsic stability system.

Finally learn why Dr Perry says "if you have musculoskeletal pain, you have an oblique problem." Special attention will be made to the Pallof Press and side bending assessment.

 

Foot to Core Sequencing : An Antomist's Approach

With Dr Kathy Dooley

With the foot as they foundation to human upright posture, it is not surprising that this complex structure is integral for optimal core activation. Join Dr Kathy Dooley, chiropractor, anatomist and movement specialist as she discusses the importance of foot movement on proper sequencing of abdominal musculature.

Listen in as Dr Dooley shares insights on her experience with human dissection of these structures and clinical correlates between the foot and core musculature.

 

Yoga Correctives for the Lower Extremity

With Dr Emily Kiberd DC

A reported 20.4 million Americans now practice yoga everyday. As more people experience the benefits of improved balance, increased flexibility and strength, yoga related injuries are at an all time high. Dysfunctional movement patterns carry over into the yoga practice and can either be corrected or amplified.

Join Urban Wellness Clinic's Emily Kiberd DC on how to develop a keen eye for common yoga misalignments, learn alignment cues that can be given in any pose to enhance the benefits of the practice and how yoga can be incorporated into a functional movement rehab program.

 

Primal Rehab for reflexive core stability

With Stop Chasing Pain's Dr Perry Nickelston

Joint Stop Chasing Pain's Dr Perry Nickelston as he explores how dysfunctional sequencing of the intrinsic core impacts choreography of movement and contributes to musculoskeletal pain.

Learn the role of the diaphragm, pelvic floor, transverse abdominals, multifidi in IAP stabilization, as well as the integration of the thoracolumbar fascia, internal obliques and deep neck flexors to lumbo pelvic hip complex mechanics. Understanding how to use ground-based neuro-developmental patterns to reset core strength and take the EMERGENCY BRAKE off movement!

 

Spring Loaded Assessing the knee trough tibial rotation

With Kevin Moore

There is increasing awareness in the fitness and movement therapy communities that each and every joint must be assessed in three dimensions. Despite this, the knee is still frequently pigeonholed as a linear, frontal-plane joint when, in fact, it has more in common with a coil than a hinge.

Join Barefoot Training Specialist® Master Instructor, Kevin Moore for his latest presentation for the EBFA webinar series where he will discuss the transverse-plane aspect of the knee by focusing on tibial rotation; the mechanism by which potential energy from the foot is converted into kinetic energy and ultimately propulsion.

 

Movement-based kinesiology taping

With Rick Daigle

Kinesiology Taping has long been a technique used by clinicians and athletes worldwide. It wasn't until the 2008 Olympics and especially the 2012 Olympics that the public began to learn more about this innovating technique.

The philosophy is to target the human body's largest organ; the skin' and use it as a modality for healing. By creating a lift, decompressing the subcutaneous layer, offering increased proprioception we can make significant changes to function.

Join Rick Daigle of Medical Minds in Motion as he discusses the philosophy behind the tape and how we use a movement based assessment formula for driving the use of Kinesiology Tape.

 

Kinetic Chain Conditioning®

With Mat Boule (Posturologist & Osteopath)

Join EBFA for it's 2nd FREE Informational Webinar! Dr Emily Welcomes Mat Boule to discuss the concept of Kinetic Chain Conditioning for postural and movement dysfunctions. This 20 minute Webinar will explore the association between foot imbalances and upper extremity dysfunction with specific programming introduced.

 

Discovering differentials approaching the complex client

With Dr Perry Nickelston and Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, MS, CES

One of the most important steps to creating effective corrective exercise programming is through a thorough assessment that rules out all possible differentials! Join Dr Emily and special guest Dr Perry Nickelston for another great webinar series "Discovering Differentials". In this webinar both Dr Emily and Dr Perry will be presenting a couple of their most interesting and complex cases. Learn their thought process as they work on each patient/client!

 

Gluteal Function in the Transverse Plane The linchpin of bipedal mobility

With Kevin Moore

In his first presentation with EBFA, Kevin C Moore will discuss the function of the gluteal complex, in particular its role as a lateral stabilizer and it's relationship with the other systems that influence gait, from the arch of the foot to the abdominal wall. He will also provide several simple strategies for developing awareness and functional strength in this critical area.

 

Joint centration & Hip Dysfunction

With Dr Evan Osar

Tight hip flexors. Decreased hip rotation. Valgus knees... These are just a few of the things that immediately come to mind if you were to ask most trainers about common patterns of hip dysfunction. In this EBFA webinar, Dr Evan Oscar joins us to look at what may be the greatest drivers of hip dysfunction and hip arthritis - the loss of optimal joint centration.

 

Psoas Sequencing & Pelvic Stabilization

With Kevin Moore

Kevin Moore of Studio 2 Pilates in Hong Kong is back! Join us as we explore the science of the psoas major. Best known for its function in hip flexion, research has shown that this muscle actually plays a key role in hip stabilization and pelvic floor activation.

 

When to mobilize? When to stabilize? New insights in movement dysfunction

With Chris McGrath

Tightness is often blamed for a significant number of movement dysfunction issues. But did you know that restricted movement can result even when tightness
is non-existent? Join EBFA and guest educator, Chris McGrath of Movement First, as we explore how poor stability can restrict movement and "disguise" itself
as tightness.

As health and fitness professionals, it is imperative that we uncover the true issues for movement dysfunction without making assumptions. This webinar will focus on problem solving strategies that will help you determine if your client has a mobility issue or a stability issue and explore ways that you can ensure you are providing the right approach.

 

Improving Joint Centration

With Dr Evan Osar

Tight hip flexors. Decreased hip rotation. Valgus knees... These are just a few of the things that immediately come to mind if you were to ask most trainers about common patterns of hip dysfunction. In this EBFA webinar, Dr Evan Oscar joins us to look at what may be the greatest drivers of hip dysfunction and hip arthritis - the loss of optimal joint centration.

 

Reviewing the Science of Functional Aging for Mature Adults

With Cody Sipe PhD

Many Myths and misconceptions permeate the fitness industry when it comes to training older adults. Even current exercise guidelines, training programs and certification programs reinforce these myths by focusing on improving the health and general fitness of older adults with little attention paid to improving functional performance.
