Cervico-Thoracic Spine: Functional Rehab and Assessment


Credit Hours: 2



Cervico-thoracic postural dysfunction and its related pain syndromes is a significant issue due to use of computers and personal communication devices. Triple-board certified Dr. Donald DeFabio authors and narrates this course which is designed to provide the clinician the tools to successfully treat this demographic. Static and dynamic assessment of the cervico-thoracic spine will be reviewed as the benchmarks to create an active care rehabilitative program for correction of common cervico-thoracic postural and pain syndromes. In addition to static postural assessment the differential diagnosis of stability vs. mobility dysfunction will be reviewed as well as active care progressions for the acute, sub-acute and corrective phases of care. Upon completion of the course the clinician will be able to apply these rehabilitative procedures into their practice immediately.
