This three-day course will provide a comprehensive overview of clinical reasoning, cervical arterial dysfunction, neurodynamics and common cervical clinical pattern theory. Emphasis will be on supervised practice of cervical examination, including posture, movement, soft tissue, sensorimotor, muscle length, thoracic outlet, neurodynamic and motor control assessment. Clinical reasoning will be practiced through a patient case and through supervised practice of select treatment progressions for acute and non-acute presentations.
On completion of this course, participants should be able to:
Mark Jones is a Senior Lecturer on the University of South Australia Master of Advanced Clinical Physiotherapy program with 30 years’ experience teaching undergraduate and postgraduate physiotherapy. Mark graduated from the University of Florida with a B.S. in Psychology and then completed his Physical Therapy studies at the University of Iowa. Having developed an interest in manual therapy Mark travelled to Australia to study Manipulative Physiotherapy and after completing his Graduate Diploma in 1985 under Geoff Maitland he completed his Master’s degree by Research in 1989. The title of his thesis was “Facilitating Students’ Clinical Reasoning in Physiotherapy Education”. Mark worked clinically, taught and published with Geoff Maitland and continues to promote integration of contemporary physiotherapy research and theory into the “Maitland Concept”. Mark has a special interest in biopsychosocial health care and the teaching and assessment of clinical reasoning in physiotherapy. He has conducted and supervised research in the areas of clinical reasoning and musculoskeletal physiotherapy with over 90 publications including three editions of the text “Clinical Reasoning in the Health Professions” and the text “Clinical Reasoning for Manual Therapists”. His latest text “Clinical Reasoning in Musculoskeletal Practice” was published in 2019. Mark has presented 30 Keynote Conference presentations and has taught professional development courses in clinical reasoning and musculoskeletal physiotherapy across 26 countries.
