Managing Neck Pain – Webinar
February 17 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am MST
This course will summarize a practical sequence to effectively evaluate and treat the cervical spine. The cervical spine can be an intimidating region to treat. With multiple red flags and anecdotes of harm to patients, clinicians lack the confidence to manage this area. This course aims at simplifying the approach to this complex body part by building on a solid foundation of assessment strategies which introduce you to simple yet effective techniques and exercises for best outcomes. The course will utilize a test- treat-re-test approach to identify interventions which facilitate a positive outcome. It will use neck pain classification from the clinical practice guidelines to help learn targeted interventions matched to the patient in front of you. This course will also discuss how to incorporate different concepts for best patient outcomes.
