Cervical Spine & Upper Quartile
Weekend 4: Thoracic plus Review
- Cervical and Cervico-thoracic HVT – This weekend builds on Weekend 1 The Cervical Spine. The theme of assessment and management will be extended from the cervical spine into the cervico-thoracic junction with the focus to extend the student’s skills from mobilisation of the cervical, cervico-thoracic and thoracic regions through to high-velocity thrust (HVT). Case studies will be used to assist clinical reasoning processes for conditions that would be amenable to HVT.
- Upper Quartile Revision – The second day will provide reflection on the learning acquired throughout the cervical spine and upper quartile programme. Participants will be encouraged to bring relevant case studies along for discussion and analysis.
Following Covid-19, the NZMPA Executive have determined that for the rest of 2020, this course can be undertaken as a standalone course.
Ordinarily, The Cervical Spine and The Shoulder, Wrist & Hand weekend courses are prerequisites for this course, and will need to be completed as part of the overall COMT programme in due course.
