This two day advanced level seminar is designed to provide the clinician with a systematic approach towards the management of cervical spine disorders. The course includes updates and insights on functional anatomy and biomechanics to develop a clinically driven knowledge base that respects current evidence and novel principles. This lab intensive course will serve as a springboard to acquire expert level manual therapy skills appropriate for the most common to the most challenging patient. Diagnosis and region specific mobilizations will be practiced to manage soft-tissue lesions and joint restrictions associated with Whiplash Syndrome, Articular Derangement, Discogenic Neck Pain and Cervicogenic Headaches and Dizziness. The clinician will gain appreciation of an eclectic treatment approach that complements current methods by building upon motor control principles and manual therapy skills that are supported by evidence and outcomes. A detailed course manual with illustrations and step-by-step instructions is provided to enhance competence and comprehension.
All course participants will have the opportunity to gain a skill and knowledge base that promotes logical clinical decision-making. Participants will then be able to develop a treatment program that incorporates a balanced approach to restoring functional mobility and achieving pain relief, which in turn should meet the client’s expectations and garner respect from referral sources.
