Cervical Spine assessment following trauma

The Cervical Spine frequently cops a bit of trauma in impact sports such as rugby and ultimate fighting. When do you need to get this region scanned or investigated, and when should you test the ligamentous integrity? They're some good questions, but you also want to follow up those questions with how you will test the ligamentous stability if you need to. What about the sensorimotor aspects of the cervical spine that are often affected after trauma, like head and neck positional sense? How can you assess and treat these?

In this online video, Caitlin Farmer, a Physiotherapist with a Masters in Musculoskeletal Physio and lots of experience assessing and treating traumatic injuries, helps you understand when and how to test the Cervical Spine following trauma. This is one of those videos that is full of great content, and only added to by the amazing skills of our resident patient, Russell "Blue Steel" Wright.
