The Cervical Spine

Examination of the Cervical Spine:  Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    We all know that as the most mobile region of the vertebral column the cervical spine is vulnerable to trauma, as well as to problems of apparently spontaneous onset. Determining the source of the problem is essential before selecting a treatment regime.

    Part 1 and 2 of this correspondence course provides a comprehensive guide to the examination of the cervical spine and clinically associated anatomical regions.

    The physical examination section is reinforced with 10 photographs that will assist you with the performance of the examination and treatment techniques.

Cervicogenic Headaches – Integrated Approach.

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Headache is a common and often incapacitating condition. It is estimated that a headache in some form is experienced by at least 50% of the population, often leading to a visit to a general practitioner or physiotherapist. The number of structures and disorders capable of causing headaches is considerable. This on-line course describes a case study of a patient with chronic headaches which had not been helped by range of previous interventions given by the patient’s GP, Neurologist and other healthcare professionals. The course will teach you/or show you a thorough assessment and subsequently effective evidence based treatment. The neurophysiological effect of the treatment is provided.

    Whiplash. It can happen so easily yet its consequences can be long lasting and debilitating. This course provides an insight into the complex set of mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of chronic WAD.

    It also highlights the facts physiotherapists need to take into account when dealing with both the acute and chronic stages of WAD in order to reduce chronicity associated with this condition.

The Cervical Spine and Headache: Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Did you know that Cervicogenic headache probably accounts for between 10 and 20% of benign headaches? Did you know that there is a growing body of evidence that multimodal physical therapy can assist these patients?

    Fundamental to the successful management of cervicogenic headache is the differential diagnosis of headache.

    Fundamental to the successful management of cervicogenic headache is the differential diagnosis of headache.

    Part two of this course describes the physical examination of the headache patient and covers the articular, the muscle systems, the neuro motor control, muscle strength and postural form. It also deals with the management of cervicogenic headache utilising manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and more.
