ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF THE UPPER AND LOWER CERVICAL SPINE

March 15, 2019 - March 17, 2019

$650

BOC Essential Level

The goal of this class is to present the arthrokinematics of motion of the upper and lower cervical spine as it applies to both normal and dysfunction movement pattern. Upper cervical biomechanics and lower cervical biomechanics will be differentiated so as to have a clearer understanding of pain pattern presentation.

Assessment and treatment will include Muscle Energy Techniques, Counterstrain, Travell concepts and myofascial techniques will be employed and demonstrated in laboratory sessions.

18 contact hours – 18 1-A hours anticipated – NATA/BOC Approved Provider #P8765 NCBTMB Approved Provider #1597 AMBP School Member #1084335

At the conclusion of the presentation, the participant should be able to:

  1. Identify the concepts and components of Occiput, Atlas and Axis somatic dysfunction.
  2. Identify the concepts and components of the lower cervical vertebrae somatic dysfunction.
  3. Differentiate between normal and abnormal biomechanics of the upper and lower cervical spine.
  4. Formulate a working knowledge of normal biomechanics of the upper and lower cervical spine, including facet arthrokinematics, Fryette’s laws of spinal     motion, and use this model in organizing an assessment and treatment plan.
  5. Assess the biomechanical implications of somatic dysfunction in the same areas in order to provide appropriate treatment.
  6. Apply Muscle Energy Techniques to change the areas of somatic dysfunction.
