This online continuing education course is designed for rehabilitation-oriented healthcare providers who treat patients with cervical pain and dysfunction. This course will serve to utilize the current best evidence for patients with cervical pain and integrate the regional interdependence model as evaluated through the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA).
The course will cover primary cervical diagnoses commonly seen in the rehabilitation setting. The course will be based around contemporary classification systems for neck pain and will include demonstration of evidenced-based exam items and most common treatment techniques (manual therapy and therapeutic exercise) for each primary condition covered including discogenic related lesions, cervicogenic headache, facet syndrome, and whiplash associated disorder (WAD).
Clinical integration of SFMA findings and progressions to appropriate Functional Movement Systems discharge testing along with strategies to manage musculoskeletal health throughout the lifespan will be covered.
