Orthopaedic Review Seminar Series for RMTs – Cervical Spine

  • Type:
  • Seminar/Workshop
  • Time:
  • 12 hours
This two day practical “hands-on" orthopaedic review seminar is designed to provide the Registered Massage Therapist with systematic problem solving skills that will enhance the practitioner's level of skill and confidence with respect to performing a cervical spine examination. Emphasis is placed on examination of the cervical "whiplash" client and covers relevant anatomy, biomechanics, orthopaedic assessment (including neurological and palpation), and medico-legal reporting.  This orthopaedic review is client-centered and is not designed to be nor intended to be a comprehensive presentation of the whiplash phenomenon. Participants will receive a manual with an outline of the seminar, vertebrobasilar circulation questionnaire, MVA personal injury questionnaire, cervical spine disability questionnaire, a do's and dont's guide to medico-legal reporting, and a sample template upon which to base future medico-legal reports.
