    Sue Falsone is known among her peers as the go-to gal for T-spine knowledge, and in this lecture, The Thoracic Spine -- The Missing Link to Core Stability, we learn how she got that reputation. First we get a brief guide to the spinal structure, and then she goes deeper with a education on how to use t-spine mobility and breathing to encourage core stability. Note: She references images from the pdf in her lecture, and you may want to have that handy the first time through.

    "It really sort of all ties together. When we look at the thoracic anatomy, it’s a kyphotic curve. When we’re born, obviously a baby is curled up into this little ball and has what’s called a primary curve.

    "The primary curve is our kyphosis. We know in the cervical spine we have lordosis—our thoracic spine is a kyphosis. Our lumbar spine goes down into lordosis and then our sacral area is more in a kyphosis."
    ~Sue Falsone

    1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lumbar or thoracic?
    Reviewer: Shan

    In the clip she's talking about the lumbar spine? Isn't the lecture on the thoracic spine?

    Good catch! Funny, nobody mentioned that before. Not fair giving her a low review because I uploaded a bad choice of sample clip, though. Thanks for letting me know I did that. I'll find a better clip today. ~ Laree

     

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 great lecture
    Reviewer: Justin

    This lecture was very helpful because of how Sue is able to get her message across to her listeners. She does speak with proper anatomical language but she does not attempt to "talk above anyone." Her information was helpful and I would recommend this to anyone who would like to learn more about an area of the body that everyone would benefit from learning more about.

     

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Great clinical anatomy and biomechanics of the T-spine
    Reviewer: Eric Lazar

    Excellent detail on the anatomical and biomechanical importance of this frequently neglected area. Coincides with the joint by joint approach, and goes much deeper into the functional importance of the musculature (especially the diaphragm), with great explanations of the physiology of breathing. Also provides ideas to apply immediately in the clinic.

    Reviewer: Daniel Menard

    Thomas Meyers evidence based dissection of the myofascial connection of the longitudinal toe to tongue pathway and Porges polyvagal theory gives rise to new and interesting permutations of our current rudimentary understanding of movement theory. Here's another interesting thought from Fishman &Saltontall: http://yogauonline.com/yogatherapy/ellen-saltonstall I'd like to hear your thoughts on this joint mobility issue and how it is considered a sub-chakra and avenue to better overall health.

     

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thoracic spine
    Reviewer: Cliff

    Excellent tutorial. Provides a thorough understanding of how the thoracic properly functions and what to do when it no longer does. Very informative section on proper breathing. Only topic which might have been included is thoracolumbar junction (T12/L1) pain and referrred pain, which I have been trying to overcome for over 4 months now with my Physical Therapist..
