Course Description:

 The use of specific therapeutic exercise as an adjunct to manual therapy treatment is a major component of evidence-based physiotherapy. It can be challenging to develop the appropriate exercise program for the patient with cervical dysfunction, attempting to address the many impairments involved, and yet not overload or irritate the neck.

 This course will focus on the use of exercise in the management of the patient with cervical spine dysfunction. A variety of physiological impairments: muscle performance (recruitment, motor control & strength), mobility, somatosensory function and posture will be presented, and detailed assessment particularly for the motor and somatosensory dysfunctions will be covered through practical sessions. Exercises to address each of these impairments will be discussed, demonstrated and practiced. This is not a manual therapy course and minimal manual therapy techniques will be included in order to focus our time on exercise.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the conclusion of the course, the therapist will be capable of:

• Identifying and evaluating the following cervical spine impairments of:
 • Mobility
 • Motor Performance
 • Dynamic Stability
 • Somatosensory Function
 • Posture

• Applying specific exercise interventions to address each of these impairments.

Developing a comprehensive exercise program for patients with various types of cervical spine dysfunction.
Exercise program design will be summarized through the use of a case history demonstration if time permits.
