Neck pain is common and can be debilitating for many individuals. While there are a multitude of manual therapy techniques patients often lack muscular strength, endurance and motor control that may lead to decreased stability and inhibited motor control of the cervicothoracic spine. Specific therapeutic exercise tailored to improving strength, endurance and motor control may assist in decreasing pain and improving function. This course will review the muscular anatomy and basic neuromuscular control pathways associated with cervicothoracic stability. Key impairments will be identified and their resultant patho-mechanics. The course will then present unique exercises to address the muscular imbalances. Upon conclusion of the webinar, participants will better understand the influence of muscular imbalance in the cervicothoracic region and have a new exercises to assist with correcting these impairments.
