Presented by Terry Pratt, this course is focused on enhancing the physical therapists’ ability to make decisions about clinical presentations that may indicate serious pathology in the cervical region. 

This course will utilize case-based instruction to illustrate specific cervical spine conditions, and their detailed, specific biomechanical and neurophysiological assessment. Participants will assemble an all-source evidence-informed approach to evaluation and management through consideration of normal, abnormal and applied cervical spine anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and pathology. Coursework will focus on reason-based development of individualized examination sequences aimed at patient/client classification into - management of an initial diagnosis, progression to a specific biomechanical and neurophysiological examination, including combined movements, symptom/intervention/rule -based classification groupings, or referral to another health-care provider. Traumatic cervical spine injury and the compromised vascular patient will be discussed in detail. Participants will compare the concepts of health, functioning, pain behaviors and their role in total patient/client management. Procedural interventions will include education, manual therapy techniques, and individualized neuromuscular rehabilitation prescription, with the goal of restoring normal function and preventing disability. Joint thrust manipulation of the upper cervical spine and uncovertebral joints will be introduced.
