Module 1 - Cervical Spine Rehab
October 17th, 2020 - 10:00am-12:00pm CST
Patients with neck pain and headaches will commonly present to a chiropractor. The incidence of cervical spine dysfunction is increasing as we continue to become more dependent on technology. Therefore, with increasing levels of disability due to neck pain and headaches, there is a need to update the practical skills of chiropractors in assessing and managing a patient with cervical spine dysfunction.
This seminar will bring the chiropractic Clinician and Researcher up-to-date with the latest evidenced-based information about the management of cervical 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 cervical spine disorders. The role of spinal manipulative therapy and structural correction of sagittal cervical lordosis will be covered. Normal average and ideal values for the cervical lordosis will be reviewed. Detailed categories of head to thorax postures, spine kinematics and abnormalities of the sagittal cervical lordosis will be learned. The Chiropractor will learn appropriate application and timing of postural and functional exercises for the cervical spine designed to correct spinal dysfunction and strengthen the cervical and upper thoracic spine tissues. The Chiropractor will be introduced to the use of home orthotics for structural rehabilitation of the cervical 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.
