MT2 Cervical spine, TMJ and Upper Extremity (Anchorage, Alaska, USA)
25 Mar 2023 - 26 Mar 2023
MT2: Therapy of the Cervical Spine, TMJ, and Upper Extremity
This is a current method of diagnostic tissue differentiation and treatment progressions of the upper quarter to include the cervical, thorax, TMJ, and upper extremity dysfunctions relevant to sports and orthopedics. Upon completion of MT-2 participants will be able to:
• Describe the basic anatomy, biomechanics, and pathology of the cervical spine, thorax, TMJ, and upper extremity joints.
• Evaluate the cervical spine, thorax, TMJ, and upper extremities with an introduction to soft tissue treatments, joint mobilization/manipulation treatments, and dosed exercise progressions.
• Describe the optimal stimuli for neuro-musculoskeletal repair.
• Understand the dysfunctions related to regional interdependence of these areas
At the conclusion of the course the participant is expected to be able to:
Understand how the anatomy, biomechanics, and arthro-kinematics of a joint contribute to its function or dysfunction.
Relate the neurology, pathophysiology, and pain to the dysfunction and to the appropriate treatment.
Evaluate dysfunction of the different tissues in all extremity joints and identify the signs and symptoms of joint pathology.
Select and apply an appropriate treatment program utilizing the optimal stimuli for histological regeneration of all extremity tissues.
Apply various techniques for articulation and mobilization as well as other current PT modalities with skill and accuracy.
Recognize the indications and contraindications for the use of articulation and mobilization procedures.
All class material is provided via email in a PDF document.
