#physiotherapist and #osteopath must take certain precautions in order to avoid damage the patient when performing a cervical manipulation.
In the video are describe 3 of the multiple precautions that we take:

1. Klein test: Evaluation of a possible compromissed vertebral artery (if performing the test, the patient experiment nistagmus, dizziness or vasovagal symptoms, there is a positive test and the manipulation should be totally avoid)

2. Certain pathologies affecting the structure (as degenerative or reumatological diseases) are a contraindication for a manipulation.
3. Once we are performing the manipulation we should respect (not stretch) in 2 of the 3 dimensions of the movement and we manipulate in the 3rd dimension.
4. Last important thing: a manipulation is a “balistic” movement, understanding as balistic a “FAST and SHORT” movement. If it isn’t perform this way, the manipulation becomes risky.

Quick tune-up for @gabi_xoxo_ at the airport!

We had a VERY busy but LIFE CHANGING weekend 😍 however it came with very little sleep over the past 4 days☠️ Gabi was experiencing a LOT of tightness in her neck with pain radiating from her neck up to the back of her skull and along the side of her head to her temple region😩🔥

She just turned to me and said “I have a cervicogenic headache. Do you think you can figure out a way to manipulate my neck?” So we got creative and now she’s feeling a lot better! #InstantRelief

🙌🏻Özel tekniklerin kullanıldığı, elle uygulanan omurga manipülasyonu, eklemlerdeki hareket kısıtlılığını düzeltmek, ağrı ve fonksiyonel bozuklukları gidermek amacıyla yapılan bir uygulamadır. Geçmişi Hipokrat’a kadar uzanan manipülasyon tedavisi, omurga ve ekstremite eklemlerindeki ameliyatlık düzeyde olmayan mekanik bozukluklarda kullanılır. 📝Tıptaki son ilerlemelere rağmen muskuloskeletal (kas ve iskelet sistemi) üzerindeki ağrı ve kısıtlılığın tedavisinde manipülasyon ve egzersiz en etkili yöntemlerdendir. ✅Günümüzde, insanların yaşam kalitesini düşüren bel, boyun ve sırt ağrılarına ameliyatsız çözüm arayışı, manipülasyon uygulamalarının önemini arttırmaktadır. ❗️Son olarak, herkesin bilmesi gereken önemli bir konu; insan anatomisini ve fizyolojisini bilmeyen ehliyetsiz kişilere, bel ve boyun problemlerini çözmek için başvurmamaları gerektiğidir. .

Cervical manipulation & stroke: Myth or Fact? ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Cervical spinal manipulation therapy (cSMT) is a common chiropractic procedure using a high-velocity low-amplitude thrust to adjust the neck and upper back. Although strokes following cSMT have been documented, is cSMT really the cause?
.

In short, the answer is likely not. Vertebral arterial dissections (VAD) are a common cause of stroke in people <45years and presents as acute neck pain and “the worst headache” the patient has ever had. ➡️All of which are reasons that drive patients already having a stroke to seek chiropractic care.⬅️ This makes strokes a rare adverse reaction associated with cSMT.
.
.
❗️Recent studies have shown that majority of VADs occur spontaneously or during every day tasks! There is even a greater risk of having a stroke from taking NSAIDs (ie. Advil) vs. receiving a cervical manipulation! 💆🏻‍♀️ .
.
This is why it is crucial for all health care practitioners to take detailed histories and look for the right signs and symptoms of a stroke: • Dysarthria • Dysphagia • Dizziness • Diplopia • Drop Attack • Ataxia • Numbness • Nausea • Nystagmus •
.

Cervical manipulations are truly an effective and safe way to treat many MSK conditions. Strokes are a very rare risk! Don’t disregard cSMT before you get all the facts 💫

🗝️ A VERY SATISFYING CERVICAL MANIPULATION
.
In this video 📹 take a sneak peak as Dr. Cooper mentors a few of his therapists at MOMENT INSTITUTE ⛩️ on upper cervical spine assessment and treatment. In the middle of teaching, Dariana demonstrated limited upper cervical rotation left. Great chance to sneak in a a quick atlanto-axial manipulation. .
Cervical manipulation is a skill few therapists learn in school. 😤 But knowing how to manipulate the cervical spine can be one of the most effective ways to make immediate in-session changes to your patient’s cervical range of motion and pain.
.
Just watch the expression on Dariana’s face. 😁 Every now and then you just need a good manip!

In this free training video I share with you my step-by-step method to manipulate the cervical spine.  This technique is sure to get the audible you want, and provide your patient with the relief they need.
.
So you dropped 120k 💰on PT school, and in the end, you still don’t know how to manipulate the neck. Yup, it's frustrating, AND it’s not your fault. Physical Therapy programs are notorious for not providing advanced manual therapy education. .
While there are a few post-graduate spinal manipulation courses out there, techniques vary widely, and safety can sometimes be questionable. ⁉️
.
In this video 📹 I share with you one of my simple cervical manipulation techniques.  Because the neck is in very little rotation at the thrust, this technique protects the neck from over-rotation, and creates a local, as specific as you can get, audible cavitation. 🎉

‼️Spinal manuplatif tedavi nedir ⁉️🤔 📌@fztmustafagulcan'ı dogru manipülasyon teknikleri için takip edin 👍🏼 -----------
Spinal manipülatif tedavi hastanın bedeninin spesifik konumlandırılmasını ve uygulayıcı tarafından belirli bir hareketi (yön, kuvvetin büyüklüğü ve amplüt) içerir. Omurgada manipülatif terapi, omurganızın hareketin tüm 3️⃣ düzlemlerinde (sagital, frontal ve transvers) hareket etmesine izin veren sinovyal eklemler olan faset eklemlerini en doğrudan etkiler. Diğer sinovyal eklemlerde olduğu gibi, faset eklemleri sinoviyal sıvı içerir ve bağ dokusundan oluşan lifli bir eklem kapsülü ile çevrilidir.

_________________________
⁉️What is Spinal Manipulative Therapy⁉️🤔 Follow @fztmustafagulcan laying down the TRUTH on manipulation!!
-----------
SMT involves specific positioning of the patient's body and a specific movement (direction, magnitude of force and amplitude) by the practitioner. In the spine, manipulative therapy most directly affects the facet joints, which are synovial joints that allow our spine to move in all 3️⃣ planes of motion (sagittal, frontal & transverse). Like other synovial joints, the facet joints contain synovial fluid and are surrounded by a fibrous joint capsule composed of connective tissue.

Stop with the #CervicalManipulation aka #NeckAdjustment people. It's just not worth the risk. And before I hear "everything has risk", I get it. But why put yourself at risk when there is truly no need? This is happening more and more frequently. There are other ways to "fix" your neck issues that carry far less risk. #Stroke #CAD #VAD #vertebralarterydissection #carotidarterydissection

After @patrick_demps carotid dissection post #CervicalManipulation I have been staunchly opposed to CM of any sort. This video and explanation make perfect sense to me - the approach is conservative yet effective. #Repost @dr.beauhightower with @repostapp
・・・
I get questions on cervical manipulations (CMT) often, especially after the death of Katie May. Here are my thoughts:🤔 First, we use traditional cervical manipulation on roughly 2-5% of our neck pain patients at Elite-OSM 👁️️ A Cochrane review on non-specific neck pain found that CMT was no better than mobilisation. 🙇

CMT was also found in the Cassidy study to have an association (not causation) with VAD (tearing of the artery in your upper neck that can Cause stroke). The vertebral artery can be injured when the Head turns too far in rotation.
The Incidence of association has been estimated at 1 in 1,000,000 patients . 🤕
This has also been demonstrated In people changing lanes, and getting their hair washed. 💆 That said, the risk to benefit ratio is likely not acceptable unless there is a specific type of neck pain that responds well to CMT. There is a mechanism of neck pain that responds to CMT. 😎 Facet joint fixation is the type of neck pain. One could also get facet injections, but this actually carries a higher side effect profile than CMT🤒
Our clinical approach is to try soft tissue work and exercises as a Front line defense.✔️ If that doesn't work, we keep CMT as a secondary option.🔅 We only use CMT on patients that have had it done previously by another provider and had a very positive outcome. 🕵️️ On the patients that have had CMT done before and benefitted, we employ a thrust seen here with little to no rotation of the head. (Watch the nose) This lack of rotation helps protect the vertebral artery from shearing and twisting. The goal is to lower the possible risks by all means possible.🙌 @diegonightmaresanchezufc
Has had cmt for many years with success and he is one of the handful of patients that we perform this procedure on🕺. ↘️ Your provider should inform you of all risks I including disc herniation and stroke (the same risks as spine surgery) even if they are incredibly rare.↖️

In human anatomy, arcuate foramen, also known as ponticulus posticus, refers to a bony bridge on the atlas (C1 vertebra) that covers the groove for the vertebral artery. It is a commonanatomical variation and estimated to occur in approximately 3-15% of the population.It occurs in females more commonly than males.The ponticulus posticus is created through ossification of the posterior atlantooccipital ligament. The potential clinical significance of posticus ponticus is controversial because the majority of patients with this finding are asymptomatic.
However, symptoms that may be associated with posticus ponticus include migraine, vertigo, diplopia, and neck pain. It has even been suggested that posticus ponticus may contribute to vertebral artery compression, vertebrobasilar insufficiency, or vertebral artery dissection.Therefore, cervical manipulation is not recommended in presence of this anatomical variation.
