An important part of the PGM Methodsm is activating the deep core muscles and addressing muscles that are weak and tight. In the previous course, Deborah Riczo discussed balancing the muscles of the pelvic girdle using PGM exercises in a very specific algorithm. In this follow-up course, Deborah teaches how to activate the deep core muscles, presents an algorithm to guide the progression of core strengthening, and identifies specific muscles that tend to need targeted stretching and strengthening in patients with pelvic girdle dysfunction.
The aim of this course is to provide knowledge on an approach to activate the deep core muscles and progressively strengthen them, to identify commonly tight and weak muscles in the pelvic girdle, and to be able to prescribe appropriate targeted stretching and strengthening exercises including modifications for pregnancy.
