Upper cervical spine disorders : assessment & practical management

Lecturer: Tzvika Greenbaum, BPT MaPT Manip & Sports (Israël)

Content:

The upper neck is a unique spinal anatomical region which requires a special clinical approach in rehabilitation. It is a very mobile region with highly accurate and sensitive motor skills and with important neurological connections to the vestibular, ocular and trigeminal nervous systems. Noxious stimuli & dysfunction in this region may quite easily lead to cranio-facial pain (Cervicogenic Headache) and sensory-motor complaints as dizziness.
This region tends to response well to manual therapy techniques combined with specific therapeutic exercise.

In this course, participants will learn an effective evidence based assessment & practical management of people with musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction in their cranio-cervical region.
