3D Assessment & Treatment of Cervical/Thoracic Spine & Ribs with Trish Wisbey-Roth


Course: 3D Assessment and treatment of Cervical/thoracic Spine and Ribs with Trish Wisbey-Roth

 

This two day intensively practical course teaches a simplified assessment and treatment approach to a very biomechanically complex area of the ribs, thoracic spine and cervical spine.
The thoracic spine and particularly ribs can be a very complex and daunting biomechanical area to understand. A main objective of this course is to demystify the biomechanics, kinematics and treatment of this area. A clear 3 dimensional model to understand thoracic spine and rib function and the most common joint and muscular dysfunctions that occur in the region will be the basis of the assessment techniques taught.
Treatment techniques taught for the ribs and thoracic spine follow a 3D biomechanical model to achieve optimal thoracic and rib function with easy to understand and practical techniques.
 
The cervical spine assessment addresses in detail the functional anatomy, biomechanics and kinematics of C2-C7, including vascular, neural, ligamentous and muscular structure and function. A clear understanding of the 3 dimensional normal and common abnormal movement patterns is a clear objective of this course.
Treatment techniques for the cervical spine taught on the course also involves treatment in 3 dimensions to achieve maximal results with logical and simple to learn techniques.
 
Retraining functional movement and stability in the cervical and thoracic spine is vital to maintain improvements from cervical and thoracic/rib treatment. The course will discuss how to commence retraining movement patterns in both the cervical and thoracic regions.
Once joint movement has been optimised the course will provide you with assessment tools to identify where neural structures are compromised and treatment techniques to maximise neural mobility with unloading techniques.


 

This course will have a very strong emphasis on practical component including the following:


• An easy to follow 3D assessment and treatment model of normal and abnormal movement patterns for ribs, thoracic and cervical spine
• Effective 3D manual therapy treatment techniques to optimise cervical, thoracic and rib movement and function
• The thoracic spine and particularly ribs can be a very complex and daunting biomechanical area to understand. A main objective of this course is to demystify the biomechanics, kinematics and treatment of this area. A clear 3 dimensional model to understand thoracic spine and rib function and the most common joint and muscular dysfunctions that occur in the region will be the basis of the assessment techniques taught.

• This course will have a very strong emphasis on practical component including the following:
• 3-Dimensional Anatomy, biomechanics kinematics and assessment of ribs, thoracic spine and the cervical spine as explained above
• 3-Dimensional treatments to optimise biomechanics ribs, thoracic spine and the cervical spine as explained above
• Discussion of exercise intervention to complement manual therapy. This section of the course will outline where to start retraining functional stability for the cervical and thoracic spine
• Neural system assessment and identification of problem interface in the upper quadrant. Techniques are taught to unload neural structures where they are compromised to maximise neural mobility.
