Neck, Head and Jaw Protocols
Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques

Neck injuries are increasingly common and can be very serious.
Even minor injuries can easily become chronic and a constant source of
pain, irritation and insomnia. Neck injuries can limit work possibilities and activities such as driving. The many joints in the cervical spine
are also commonly affected by arthritis (of all kinds).
While the kinesiologist does not treat medical diagnoses or symptoms, great improvements in movement and relief of pain can be obtained from balancing the neck muscles and relieving the emotional stress that is so often involved in muscle spasm.
This workshop covers a wide range of neck, head and jaw muscles and tools for managing common areas of pain including headaches.
