If you work with women in any stage of life, and wish to understand all the biomechanical components from dysfunction to function, you need to learn about the female chain reaction. In this DVD, you'll explore the pelvic core neuromuscular (PCN) system, functional mobility techniques for the pelvic girdle/floor muscles and exercise integration utilizing a variety of functional tools. You'll also see how pregnancy influences the PCN system and how incontinence may limit one's ability to exercise.
