The Cervical Spine Program represents a unique set of techniques designed for the assessment and correction of the cervical spine, including the yes-and no joints between the head and the neck down to the base of the neck. Learning the treatment of the cervical spine allows the therapist to remedy a broad spectrum of conditions including migraines and headaches, repetitive motion syndromes such as the forward head, trauma injury such as whiplash, entrapments that would fall under the umbrella of the thoracic outlet syndromes, radiating numbness or paresthesia into the arms, vertigo and dizziness, and much more. Manual included.
