Description

Advances in treatment standards require more than mobilization and strengthening. Expect an impactful overview of dysfunction that creates painful conditions of the neck, arm, and hand. The foundation will begin with an examination of the muscular anatomy of the upper extremity as it relates to carpal tunnel syndrome. Additionally, we will identify sensory organelles for proprioception stimulation to balance muscle and joint function, decrease pain and assist with stretching techniques. You will get a comprehensive evaluation of the kinetic chain and fascia lines of the upper extremity. Discover how to engage the cranial nerves through eye movement to facilitate improved and pain-free ROM. Finally, various modes of manual therapy to address dysfunction of the neck applicable for acute, chronic, and highly sensitive patients will be explored. You will be able to confidently speak to your patient about anatomy and physiology to facilitate functional movement patterns and empowerment.
