In this course, midwives and other care providers will learn techniques that research has shown to be effective in preventing and correcting back pain. Students will learn how to:
1. Practice inhibitory thinking in order to prevent automatic patterns of neuro-muscular dysfunction. (“Pause”)
5. Suggest movement, postural and cognitive strategies to their clients to mitigate common, automatic patterns of compression and misalignment.
This course has been approved by MEAC for 4 hours of continuing education. This course is a fundraiser for the Oregon Midwifery Council.
