Course Description: This advanced lecture and lab course places emphasis on the role the cervical spine plays in the management of cranial function and position. Intercervical, atlanto, occipital, and cranial assessment will help the clinician appreciate occiput, sphenoid and temporal orientation and thus how to proceed in determining what PRI manual or non-manual techniques should be considered. Airway alignment, hyoid location, vocal cord function, diaphragmatic demand and arthrokinematic correlations will be discussed, as they relate to the left sidebending and right torsion physiologic cranial positions. Specific repatterning techniques will be offered for these two cranial positions of the Right Temporal Mandibular Cervical Chain (TMCC) pattern. Information will be provided on when and how to engage with a dentist regarding oral appliance intervention and fabrication. Participants will be able to immediately apply non-manual techniques to enhance normal functional cervical lordosis, active rotation and freedom for vestibular frontal plane integration. Learning Objectives: • Recognize and evaluate contributing muscular impact on torsion and compression of cervicothoracic, craniocervical, and craniomandibular joints. • Distinguish when to refer to a dentist for an oral appliance to assist in maintaining cervical neutrality and neurologic stabilization of the cervical spine and cranium through the use of opposition muscle of the Right TMCC. • Establish an understanding of sphenoid occipital-basilar (SB) and basilar sphenoid (BS) biomechanical influence on temporal and cervical-thoracic function. • Identify the difference between a cranium that is in bilateral extension versus a cranium that is in a right temporal internal rotated position (R TMCC pattern) and design a treatment program using PRI techniques and dentistry if needed.
