A Complete Clinician’s Approach to Musculoskeletal Management of the Cervical Spine

Course Description

24 Education Hours:  8 Hours – Online Self Study + 16 Hours – Online Instructor-led Training

The 8 hours of online lectures encompass an in-depth look at cervical anatomy from the occiput to T4, clinical assessment with detailed differential diagnosis considerations, and management suggestions from acute to chronic conditions.

Each two-hour instructor led webinar is conducted by an expert in the field. Concepts from the online lectures are applied to a complex patient case with specific patho-anatomical considerations as well as how the case is interpreted from clinical testing. All aspects of a comprehensive plan of care are presented, to include soft tissue and joint mobilization, dry needling, and sensorimotor control. Course work covers disc pathology, uncovertebral versus facet joint pathology, functional instability, and nerve root compression syndromes. Special topics include important considerations of the interplay of temporomandibular dysfunction with cervical pathology, patient communication for optimal recovery, and differential diagnosis with treatment considerations of various types of headaches.
