This course is focused on enhancing the physical therapists’ ability to make decisions about clinical presentations that may indicate serious pathology in the cervical region. Course participants will develop a safe, effective, and efficient cervical screening examination that has three (3) primary aims; a) to ensure that the patient/client is within the scope of physical therapy practice and suitable for management, b) to provide a provisional diagnosis, and c) to guide the remainder of the evaluation and management. Course participants will identify an all-source evidence-informed approach to evaluation and management through consideration of normal, abnormal and applied cervical anatomy, physiology, pathology, and movement science. Course participants will apply the concepts of total patient health, function, life-participation, pain behaviors and their manifestations, and their role in the total patient/client management. Management strategies will include education, activity modification, manual therapy techniques, and individualized neuromuscular rehabilitation prescription, with the goal of restoring optimal function and preventing future health conditions and impairments.
