For many years chiropractic spinal manipulation to the cervical spine has been associated as a possible risk factor for cervical artery injury and neurological sequelae. Its use is also severely restricted for those patients with myelopathy and who are post surgical fusion. The purpose of this class is to offer practitioners the ability to work with patients with neck problems by utilizing alternatives to HVLA spinal manipulation through a greater understanding of anatomy and function. Attendees will receive instruction in recognizing neck pain as a regional problem, using scapulo/thoracic motion as a method for reducing cervical spine stresses, and appropriate use of supports and braces.
