Balance Physical Therapy to hold Facebook Live event on Sept. 24 called ‘Integrated Yoga’
With a 5,000-year history in ancient Indian philosophy, yoga helps strengthen both mind and body.
Integrating the practice of yoga into the more modern techniques of physical therapy can improve the body’s mobility and range of motion, which can lead to better flexibility, strength and balance while reducing pain and promoting healing.
Passionate about movement science, Dr. Byanca Madrigal of Balance Physical Therapy & Performance Center incorporates yoga into her patients’ recovery process.
To reveal how the two disciplines can be successfully integrated, Dr. Madrigal will host a Facebook Live event called “Therapeutic Yoga” on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 5 p.m. The one-hour event will include a yoga flow, along with education on breathing techniques.
Dr. Madrigal is a licensed physical therapist and certified yoga teacher who specializes in pelvic health. She has a passion for implementing yoga techniques and teachings into her physical therapy practice with her patients every day. Through yoga, coupled with her years of training and experience in anatomy and body mechanics, Dr. Byanca is able to help patients of all types improve their body’s mobility and range of motion, which can lead to better flexibility, strength and balance while reducing pain and promoting healing.
A doctor of physical therapy, Madrigal earned her graduate degree at Loma Linda University. A former volunteer for an Imperial Valley physical therapist while attending high school, Madrigal credits that early experience with discovering her passion.
Her favorite thing about the profession is having “the opportunity to educate a patient on how to take care of their bodies,” she said. “This allows me to help not only treat and change how a person functions, but to create lasting change that impacts my patients’ lives.”
