Get Your Clients Moving After Pregnancy
Pregnancy is beautiful, exciting, life-changing—and can be difficult to recover from. According to the US Census Bureau, a new baby is born every 8 seconds in the United States alone. That means that every day, millions of new mothers are beginning not only their journey through motherhood, but a journey to readjusting their body after pregnancy—a journey that, according to podiatrist Dr. Emily Splichal, starts with the feet.
In this video training, Dr. Splichal—a human movement specialist and global leader in barefoot science and rehabilitation—will explain how powerful the feet are when it comes to core strength, and how this connection may be the secret to restoring core strength following a pregnancy. You will learn about the anatomy of the core and how the body stabilizes during standing, walking and running, and gain a greater appreciation for this foundational area of postnatal health for your clients.
You will learn:
- The connection between the feet and the core via the deep front fascial line.
- The connection between breathing and pelvic floor as it relates to the postnatal client.
- How to develop sensible periodization principles based on the client’s age and fitness level.
- How to design safe and effective postnatal foot-to-core programming as the foundation to all other exercises.
This was an excellent course and I can definitely see myself using these techniques to help my new mom clients or moms that delivered a while ago but are still having issues where they have lost that connection with the pelvic floor/abdominals after having children. I thought it was very well organized and the demonstration was very helpful.
It was very hard to stay on track with what she was saying, she jumped around quite a bit, she did not really explain how to engage the pelvic floor just that you should bring "12 to 6 and 3 to 9" This was not helpful!
Very valuable information and practical tools that apply to many women.
