patterns that may contribute to the abnormal alignment of the rib cage, trunk and/or spine secondary to pediatric
and adult chronic health conditions.

spine to correct or minimize these deformities.
4. Develop subsequent treatment plans for neuromuscular retraining that is focused on simultaneously optimizing
breathing, core stabilization and p
