Cervical whiplash is a common and unfortunate injury that our clients present within our practices. Our goal is to provide our clients with the environment, assessment, treatment and referrals to other healthcare practitioners that will allow them to heal swiftly and completely.
It is important that we understand the mechanics of the injuries and what structures may be involved. Based on the signs and symptoms your clients exhibit, you will be able to make an informed decision about the direction of your treatment using special tests and advanced assessment skills that will be introduced in class. Once the evaluation process is completed and you have determined the course of treatment, we will explore specific, appropriate and thorough manual therapy techniques. Not only will we be addressing the commonly known muscles that are injured with a whiplash injury, but we will also explore the smaller intrinsic muscles and ligaments that when left untreated may lead to chronic pain. By the conclusion of the weekend, your confidence to make informed decisions and address your client’s cervical whiplash injuries with appropriate techniques should be markedly improved while energizing your practice.
