Module 2 - Thoracic Spine Rehab
October 17th, 2020 - 12:30pm-2:30pm CST
Patients with thoracic pain and Hyperkyphosis will commonly present to a chiropractor. The incidence of thoracic spine dysfunction is increasing as we continue to become more dependent on technology. Therefore, with increasing levels of disability due to back pain, there is a need to update the practical skills of chiropractors in assessing and managing a patient with thoracic spine dysfunction.
This seminar will bring the chiropractic Clinician and Researcher up-to-date with the latest evidenced-based information about the management of thoracic spine dysfunction, screening, diagnosis, red-flags will be covered in detail.
Importantly this seminar will help to define the role of the chiropractor in the health care community, when chiropractic management and treatment are appropriate and when collaboration and co-management are the best option.
This course provides an integrated education for the Doctor of Chiropractic in the science and art of thoracic spine disorders. The role of spinal manipulative therapy and structural correction of sagittal thoracic kyphosis will be covered. Normal average and ideal values for the thoracic kyphosis will be reviewed. Detailed categories of thorax postures, spine kinematics and abnormalities of the sagittal thoracic kyphosis will be learned. The Chiropractor will learn appropriate application and timing of postural and functional exercises for the thoracic spine designed to correct spinal dysfunction and strengthen the thoracic spine tissues. The Chiropractor will be introduced to the use of home orthotics for structural rehabilitation of the thoracic spine. Indications and contraindications to these new structural rehabilitation procedures will be reviewed. The details of case management using these structural rehabilitation methods will be covered using a variety of case studies for a comprehensive picture of clinical application of this course material.
