This first session deals with the anatomy and biomechanics of the thorax and its integration with the cervical spine, shoulder girdle and the thorocolumbar junction. The biomechanics of the region is outlined in detail and is accompanied by demonstration videos on rib decompression, clavicular decompression and a case history of traumatic rib dysfunction treatment.
Identify the biomechanics of rotation of a thoracic ring at the levels T1-T7.
Review the biomechanics of the cervical spine, thoracic spine, ribs, clavicle and manubrium with elevation of the right or left shoulder.
Visusalize te the biomechanics of flexion and extension at the costotransverse joint T9 level.
Identify the differences in motion of the mobile segments between T3 -T7 with side flexion occurring first in the Thoracic Spine.
Thoracic/ thorax, cervicothoracic, thorocolumbar and anterior shoulder girdle anatomy
o Bony and articular components
Biomechanics of the Thoracic, thorax/rib, cervical, cervicothoracic, thorocolumbar
Biomechanical link of the shoulder girdle to the thorax
Case history of treatment of a shoulder impingement
Lab video: rib decompressions, clavicular decompression
