ISOMT Evidence based Examination & Management of Cervical Spine- Regional Interdependence - An ISOMT Update


Course Overview

In this course, Dr. TJ & Dr. PK will discuss the evidence-based, comprehensive Cervical Spine assessment and treatment approach.

They present their views about the difficult neck & upper back pain patients who this evidence-based approach and regional interdependence can treat.

The course begins with a focus on the Anatomy and biomechanics of the cervical spine.

Learners and participants will be able to recommend proper evidence-based examination and treatment procedures, including coupling motions, neurological screening, segmental mobility testing, identifying the dysfunctions, and treatment techniques.

Next, TJ & PK will describe cervical mobilization, manipulations, neurodynamic, muscle energy techniques. It will include both open chains and closed exercise prescriptions.

The course will conclude with real case studies discussion from TJ's & PK's own clinical experience with a detailed interactive session in the end.
