Co-requisite: N/A 8. Course prerequisite to: TECH71604 Cervical Technique and all other Tech courses. 9. Course description: The biomechanics of the upper cervical spine are presented, as well as a reinforcement of static and motion palpation skills. Palmer Upper Cervical Specific X-Ray Analysis and adjusting procedures are presented. The use of chiropractic instrumentation and leg checks are presented as they pertain to upper cervical practice. 10. Course/student goals : The student will gain and demonstrate a level of competency in deriving an upper Cervical listing with the use of pertinent radiographs as well as appropriately utilizing specific chiropractic parameters by with to identify the subluxation complex. The student will also competently deliver an upper cervical adjustment when it is warranted. 11. Course Competencies : This course presents a review of static and motion palpation for the upper cervical spine. The biomechanics of the occiput/atlas/axis region is introduced. The palpation review provides a continuation of cervical palpation experience in order to facilitate training in patient adjusting procedures. Palpation emphasis is placed on soft and hard tissue cervical structure recognition and identification. Palmer Upper Cervical Specific X-Ray Analysis is studied via x-ray lectures and viewbox work. The x- ray film experience provides the opportunity to acquire skills necessary for x-ray structure recognition as seen on upper cervical x-ray films. Principles of x-ray line drawing analysis are presented together with the rationale for the analysis as this would relate to chiropractic practice. Additionally, detection of ―poor patient placement‖ as evidenced on x-ray is explored for the cervical series of film. Chiropractic instrumentation—using Titronics Technology--is introduced. The pattern analysis (as a
