Clarifying the Shoulder Girdle: a Workshop for Clinicians in the Feldenkrais Method with Margaret Mayo 

Clarifying the Shoulder Girdle for Clinicians_0.pdf

As clinicians, the complexity of shoulder girdle means that in assessing movement there we often default to assessments of individual joints that comprise the girdle without a clear understanding or experience of the workings of shoulder as an integrated whole.

In this workshop we shall explore how you experience your shoulder girdle and its connections with your spine and pelvis and come to understand how your movement experience influences your ability to teach clients how to perceive themselves  and affect a change in themselves.

There will be time to do some ‘hands on’ work.

Margaret Mayo: Before becoming a Feldenkrais Practitioner Margaret worked as a physiotherapist in Neurological Rehabilitation. She has been a Feldenkrais Practitioner for 20 years. Margaret has worked as an assistant trainer in Australia, Italy, the United States, The Netherlands and UK. She had a private practice in Sydney for 12 years and now runs an Awareness Through Movement based practice in Adelaide.

Movement Control and Low Back Pain: a Conversation with Professor Peter O’Sullivan and Julie Peck

Current concepts in medicine suggest that patients with chronic low back pain form a heterogeneous group where multiple factors might be operating within an individual. These include physical factors such as the nature of the injury itself, psychological dynamics that shape how one responds to pain and injury, social and environmental factors that either support or hinder recovery.

Physical therapies nonetheless have a focus on structure and function and physiotherapy treatments often have a movement control focus. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to observe two different approaches to movement retraining from two highly respected clinicians in their respective fields. You will learn how each clinician assesses a patient, develops a treatment plan and observe an intervention in order to illuminate the differences and similarities of each approach. Despite the focus on movement, you will come to understand how embedded in both of these approaches is an appreciation of the emotional state of the patient and how this affects the dynamics of the interaction and the intervention itself.

As to best simulate an everyday clinical setting, the format of the workshop will be a “live” interaction with one practitioner working with a new client previously assessed by an independent physiotherapist as having movement-related chronic LBP, followed by discussion and questions. After a break, the same format is repeated by the other practitioner working with the second client. Discussions and questions will be chaired by Dr Richard Yin. We hope that this workshop will be stimulating and informative and serve to broaden your thinking in meeting with those with chronic low back pain.
