Dr Shabnam lectures and conducts workshops on Cervical Spine and Upper Quadrant muscular dysfunction and rehabilitation. Assessment techniques combine basic principles of anatomy and biomechanics with advanced level knowledge of neurophysiological and musculoskeletal control. Multi-approach techniques for intervention are essentially based on low threshold muscle recruitment and motor control inefficiency. Both are causative and/or result in faulty static and dynamic postures and movement patterns.
