Agenda
8:00 Anterior and lateral neck anatomy relevant to TOS 8:20 Clinical Evidence 8:30 Assessment of symptom presentation including video of: Cervical Spine Screening Supraclavicular fossa test Scalene flexibility assessment Ipsilateral/Contralateral Addison’s test Elevation and stiffness of the first rib assessment Scapula release test 8:50 Treatment intervention Scalene flexibility exercises Cervical retraction in the forward head presentation Deep neck flexor activation First/Second rib mobilization Ergonomic interventions including workstation and sleeping positions 9:30 Q/A and review of demonstrated techniques per request

Description
Nonspecific pain syndromes of the upper limb present a challenge to the clinician entrusted with the care of these difficult cases. Success depends on a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy of this region. Further, the clinician must be able to apply anatomic knowledge to clinical presentation to derive effective treatment. In part one of this course the anatomy of the scalene triangle and its relationship to the first rib is explored. Assessment techniques specific to this region are reviewed and treatment strategies are presented. Relationships to scapulothoracic movement and posture are also presented. Mobilization techniques are blended with corrective exercise and relevant ergonomic education to present a comprehensive approach to treatment.
