Course Description:

Thoracic Ganglia: Clinical Considerations is a 2.5 day lab and lecture based class focused on the interplay of the autonomic and somatic neuroanatomy and neurophysiology from the T5 Thoracic Ganglia down to the L2 Sympathetic Ganglia including the Greater, Lesser, and Least Splanchnic nerves. This class is an introduction to the role the somatic and autonomic thoracic nerves (sympathetic and parasympathetic) play in the biomechanical function of the subdiaphragmatic structures and lower rib cage down to the iliac crest in biomechanical as well as visceral dysfunction. 

This practical, evidence-informed course educates practitioners, manual therapists and healthcare professionals in understanding the causes and effects of disordered autonomic function and provides strategies and protocols to help restore normal function in this area.

Thoracic Ganglia: Clinical Considerations weaves together the understanding of how to make use of the good regional information provided by mixed autonomic ganglia with the fine local control of mixed autonomic plexuses and use that understanding to integrate global dynamic equilibrium through manual contacts and treatments. This knowledge will aid the practitioner in their ability to develop an appropriate manual treatment regimen to optimize and improve that patients' reflex arc function in balance, visual field, respiration, cardio-pulmonary, neurohormonal signaling, glandular response and upper body integration through complex movement patterns.
