Mobilization of the Cervical and Thoracic Spine and Ribs - Reno (Oct 16 - 17, 2021)
Mobilization of the Cervical and Thoracic Spine and Ribs is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Oct 16 - 17, 2021 at Moreland Physical Therapy, Sparks, Reno, Nevada, United States of America.
This course has been submitted for 16 continuing education hours. Approval amounts may vary per state. Certificates of attendance with the number of course hours will be given to each participant at the completion of the course.
This course focuses on taking an area of the body – the neck, upper back and ribs - and simplifying it so that the clinician feels comfortable treating it. Treatment approaches include Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and direct articulations to the thoracic spine and ribs. This course is evidence-based and every technique is repeated multiple times so that each participant has the chance to learn them well. When you leave this class, you will walk away with a comprehensive and strong foundation for treatment of the neck, upper back and ribs.
At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:
• Correctly describe the normal and abnormal biomechanics of the vertebrae in the upper cervical spine (OA, AA), lower cervical Spine (C2-7), thoracic spine (T1-I2) and ribs
• Confidently describe 5 specific spinal and rib anatomical structures
• Correctly describe the neurophysiological mechanism behind muscle energy technique (MET)
• Correctly and confidently identify 3 key components necessary to administer proper MET
• Correctly and confidently administer 5 cervical spine METs, 5 thoracic spine METs, 4 thoracic spine mobilizations (Grade II-IV), 3 thoracic spine manipulations (Grade V), 1 cervical-thoracic distraction mobilization/manipulation, 3 rib METs, and 2 rib mobilization/manipulations
• Through the discussion of relevant evidence based research, support the use of METs/mobilization and manipulations to the cervical and thoracic spine and ribs for specific diagnoses
• Through the use of 3 varying case studies, correctly demonstrate a systematic approach for the treatment progression through the cervical and thoracic spine and rib complex
• Properly locate the correct bony landmarks (i.e. Thoracic and Cervical Transverse Process, rib angle)
• Demonstrate the appropriate force direction for 5 specific MET/mobilization and manipulations
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
