Because we like to spend more time during the live portion of a NAIOMT course, emphasizing hands-on, case based material, we utilize Primal Pictures in our online pre-course modules. Below is an example video, reviewing some pertinent anatomy of the cervical spine.
During a Cervical Spine I class, one of our course participants who had surgery for a cervical myleopathy still presents with upper motor neuron signs (although diminished since the surgery). He allowed us to film them so fellow PTs can see what babinski, clonus, hoffmans sign and pronator rigidity present like.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Kathy Stupansky demonstrates a manipulation for an extension restriction on the right at C56. Please note, this is a technique covered in our Advanced Spinal Manipulation course. Our Cervical Spine I and II courses are great stops on the path to getting to this level.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Michael Lucido demonstrates how physical therapists can evaluate a patient's suspected cervicogenic headache.
In the Cervical I manual therapy lab demonstration below, NAIOMT Faculty Member Terry Pratt, MS, PT, COMT, FAAOMPT addresses modifications to the Halpike-Dix maneuver for BPPV. The majority of patients have sensitivity in cervical spine extension and rotation.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT Faculty Member Terry Pratt, MS, PT, COMT, FAAOMPT demonstrates a great technique for testing ROM in the cervical spine without a goniometer.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Stacy Soappman discusses what happens when the AA joint is restricting our right rotation, and one way we can help patients regain it.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT's distinguished faculty instructor Ann Porter Hoke demonstrates an atlantoaxial rotary stability test (weight bearing-seated).
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty Laura Iverson-von Wullerstorff, PT, MS, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT reviews PIVMs for the Cervical Spine.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT Faculty member Bill Temes demonstrates an evaluation of a post-MVA CT Junction patient whose presenting complaints are worse when working at a computer or with prolonged upper extremity activity.
