Neck/Thoracic Ring Drivers & Their Connections

Skill Enhancement Workshops
ConnectTherapy™ & the Thoracic Ring Approach™


Skill Enhancement Workshops are one-day courses specially designed to provide support for skill improvement in specific regions of the body in small group settings. The course is designed for Graduates of the 3-part ConnectTherapy Series or ISM Series who are considering enrolling in Part 4 of The Series.

These workshops are also helpful for Graduates of the ConnectTherapy Series Part 4 and can help participants prepare for application to the LJLI Certification program. 

Workshops are designed to provide specific feedback on your assessment and treatment skills for a specific type of driver in the body. This workshop day will focus on Neck/Thoracic Ring Drivers and the connections of these regions to whole body function & performance and will be led by ConnectTherapy Certified Practitioner, Lindsay Geddes.

The aims of the day are highly practical and include to:

  • enhance your skills in determining if the region shows non-optimal load transfer (NOLT) in different tasks,
  • enhance your corrections skills of the region so you can more efficiently and confidently rule-in and rule-out that region as a driver during Meaningful Task Analysis (MTA),
  • enhance your abilities to maintain a neck correction with 1-hand as you identify the impact of your correction on other regions of the body, and identify specific thoracic rings that have gotten worse or better,
  • practice release techniques for common vectors related to the region being a driver o discuss the key treatment priorities for successful progression through Phase 1 and into Phase 2 exercise progressions
  • discuss common connections and influences to be aware of in treatment related to the driver theme for the day 

For each workshop, participants will be able to provide a list of their current challenges related to assessment and treatment of the regional driver topic for the workshop. 

Class size is limited to eighteen (18) participants.
