About this Event

Upper Cross Syndrome Practical Workshop

Upper Cross Syndrome is a term that describes a number of different types of altered postures through biomechanical changes over a long period of time. These changes can lead to a number of musculoskeletal conditions, causing pain, decreased range of motion, and poor functional movement patterns. Not only can Upper Cross Syndrome lead to soft tissue pain and dysfunction, but it can also cause cervical and thoracic spinal based pain that presents locally and that radiates away from the spine.

This one day practical workshop will cover specific musculoskeletal conditions related to Upper Cross Syndrome. Corrective exercises and corrective stretching will be implemented to help reverse these postural changes leading to a reduction in pain, and significant increases in range of motion. Manual handling in the form of specific myofascial techniques and specific joint mobilisation techniques will also be included.

By the end of this one day practical workshop, you will be able to accurately assess and treat the cervical and thoracic region for Upper Cross Syndrome with a range of different soft tissue modalities, joint mobilisation techniques, and will be able to prescribe specific cervical and thoracic exercises for long term management.
