Biomechanical Evaluation For The Upper Body

T-Spine, Scapulae & C-Spine

October 31 & November 1, 2020


LIVE online - 9:30 am to 5:30 pm both days


The upper body's structure has significant influence on our breathing, our nervous system and the translation of forces to the neck and head as well as through the lower back and pelvis.

On the flip side, we can ALSO say the opposite is also true!

Understanding these relationships in their complexity is truly fascinating ..


We know there are ‘pathways’ of muscles, nerves, and fascia which, when integrated optimally, allow us to create healthy movement patterns which are the base for improving endurance and then strength and, ultimately, performance.

Join us for a tour through all the fascial connections as we test breathing patterns, thoracolumbar movement, and the muscles that stabilize the shoulder.

Here's What You'll Learn:

  • A brief overview of setting up your client's clinical record
  • Simple record keeping tips and current charting software programs
  • Walk through the palpation of major points of upper body surface anatomy
  • A review of common static and dynamic postural faults 
  • Understand the impact of both appropriate and dysfunctional breathing on the ribs, clavicles, scapulae, neck muscles, head position and fascial structure

But Wait! There's More!


  • Trace the fascial lines crossing through the upper body
  • Simple joint movements and possible fascial restrictions
  • More complex movement patterns of the thoracic spine, scapula and cervical spine
  • Feel confident with musculoskeletal evaluation for the neck, shoulder, chest, elbow, wrist and hand
  • Understand the symptoms requiring a neurological screen of upper body myotomes and dermatomes
  • Get clear on how and when to refer to other rehab pros


And Still More ...

  • Work through a full assessment using comprehensive fill-in-the-blank templates of consent forms, and billing, scheduling and cancellation policies
  • Go step by step through a sample assessment, review the findings and take part in a discussion of clinical impressions and possible treatment directions
  • See a demonstration of exercise planning software programs
  • Walk through assessment and progress report templates used extensively with auto and disability insurers
