Sample text

Beginning (appropriately enough) at the beginning, we started with the brain. In this lesson, we emphasized the sensorimotor skills of effort recognition and quality of control. He was able to use his fingers both to move his toes passively and to assess his degree of hypertonicity. He was able to contract his toe plantarflexors, and have either fingers or toes there as both a destination and a sounding board. How hard am I pressing, and how steady/controlled is that pressure? How does toe control compare to finger control?

We will look at other positions/orientations now to get a further perspective on antagonist coordination. As a continuation of our pelvic tilt lesson, we can bring our students up to sitting on the floor, having them place their 40 Fig. 29 Going in both directions of pelvic tilt – the same reciprocating movement but harder. hands on their thighs near their knees and alternately rolling their pelvis forward and back (Fig. 29). Coming forward is a shortening contraction or a strengthening of the iliopsoas and back extensors, along with a simultaneous inhibition or stretching of the hamstrings, gluteals, other deep posterior hip external rotators and the abdominals.

When sitting or standing vertically, we all have some degree of weightbearing bias. If we habitually put more weight on our left ischial tuberosity in sitting, or on our left foot in standing, this unlevels the pelvic base and necessitates a compensatory side-bending movement of the spine and ribcage, in this case to the right. If we continue this C-curving movement all the way through our spine, we will end up with our head cocked to the right as in the example of the baby; this is a global pattern of movement throughout the whole spine.
