This course is an updated version of a previous popular course on Plus called Cervical Arterial Dysfunction (CAD). In September 2020 The International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT) published the revised International IFOMPT Cervical Framework. The terminology Cervical Artery Dysfunction (CAD) has been replaced with vascular pathologies of the neck and provocative positional testing is no longer recommended. In this course, Roger Kerry, will draw on current best-evidence in guiding physiotherapists on the considerations and clinical reasoning framework when assessing and managing risk of vascular pathology for people with head and/or neck pain.
The aim of this course is to provide you with the information to understand and implement an evidence-based risk assessment strategy for your patients with head and/or neck pain prior to Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (OMT) Intervention.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
