Published: Tuesday, May 21, 2013 5:30 a.m.CDT

Todd Vanatta, physical therapist at Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists, recently attended a course in Raleigh, N.C., on Visceral Functional Mobilization.

This three-day lab-intensive course focused on gaining mobility of all structures through the abdomen and pelvis to improve performance of everyday tasks or activities such as lifting, bending and breathing.

Studies have shown that physical therapy to improve mobility of the abdominal connective tissues can be highly beneficial in reducing spinal, pelvic, and shoulder pain.

Vanatta includes assessment and treatment of abdominal and pelvic structures in practice when appropriate depending on a person’s diagnosis.
