Cervical and Upper Extremity – Orthopedic Assessment and Treatment
To Sunday 23 October 2022 - 05:00pm
This course was designed to give the participants an excellent understanding and review of orthopedic assessments and treatment protocols for the Cervical spine and upper extremity region. Review of Anatomy, kinesiology and common musculoskeletal conditions will be presented and reviewed.
Cervical spine and upper extremity dysfunctions are commonly seen by massage therapists and often some of the most difficult conditions to affect positive outcomes. For example, ever wondered how you could effectively treat cervical spinal stenosis, thoracic outlet syndrome, medial, lateral epicondylitis and carpal tunnel syndrome? Treatment techniques for these dysfunctions will be taught and explored with the group. Treatment techniques such as joint play mobilizations (glides), end-range loading, muscle energy, contractile myofascial release, direct and indirect long and short lever mobilizations and proper use of a treatment/mobilization belt will be demonstrated and discussed.
Please bring comfortable cloths and a pen.
