How do you safely and comfortably manipulate the cervical spine in the presence of sensitive segments? In this video, NAIOMT faculty Liz Henry reviews how you can use locking techniques to solve the issue of protecting sensitive segments in the cervical spine.
Two kinds of articular locking are described for this spinal region. The application of locking under four scenarios are described, including the use of schematics to visually illustrate:
- When there are no sensitive segments
- When there is a sensitive segment superior to the target segment
- When there is a sensitive segment inferior to the target segment
- When there are sensitive segments both superior and inferior to the target segment
