Description
Manual therapy for the cervicothoracic complex is an important tool used every day in the management of neck pain. However, with so many different philosophical approaches it can be challenging for clinicians to understand which techniques are best. This course will review general philosophical approaches to manual therapy for neck pain. A process using primary clinical findings will be outlined to drive manual therapy decision making. This will be followed by examples of specific techniques targeted to the cervicothoracic spine which are easy to apply and provide immediate changes in patient outcomes. Ultimately, this course aims to demystify much of the dogma used to justify manual therapy interventions in the cervicothoracic spine and provide practical decision making tools to decide on specific techniques.
