MANUAL THERAPY VIDEO SERIES

Swodeam Consulting Inc. and Jim Meadows is pleased to present the video series "Manual Therapy". This collection of six volumes of video tapes has a total running time of more almost eleven hours of manual therapy examination and treatment technique demonstration.

This series is not made on a manual therapy course with a VHS recorder.

There are eleven individual tapes comprising the set, all of which were professionally produced by KWGN-TV of Denver, CO. The series is intended to duplicate a book in that the viewer has the ability (so far as video allows) to flip through the tapes. Each tape is kept to a maximum of 90 minutes and usually runs around 60 minutes so that fast forwarding is facilitated. The following features ensure high quality production and easy viewing.

  • The production included two cameras, one for showing body positions and the other for hand and finger placements in the more complex techniques

  • Professional sound engineering monitored constantly during production by an engineer ensures audio quality

  • To avoid shooting the videos in a clinic with all the attendant problems in lighting and sound, a set was built by the TV station.

  • Split screen demonstrations allow the viewer to watch the technique on the live patient and on skeletal material simultaneously for the more intricate examination and treatment procedures.

  • The tapes are divided by full page graphics which stay on the screen for 15 seconds with the title of the topic being demonstrated allowing the viewer to fast forward to areas of interest conveniently

  • For each sub-category, a subtitle overlying the demonstration stays on the screen for approximately five seconds

  • Theory is kept to minimum and practical demonstrations to a maximum so that the tapes do not waste time duplicating course material

  • Manuals accompanying Volumes 1, 2-4, 5 and 6 provide background detail on underlying theory

VIDEO DESCRIPTIONS
Manual Therapy: Volume 1 Differential Diagnosis: The Spinal Scan Examination

Volume 1 comes in two tapes for a total running time of approximately 150 minutes. The two tapes demonstrate the Cyriax scanning examination for the sacroiliac joints, lumbar, thoracic and cervical spines. They include:

  • Articular tests (active and passive movements)

  • Muscle tests (isometrics)

  • Neurological tests (dermatome, myotome and reflex tests)

  • Dural tests Special tests (quadrant, upper limb tension tests, dizziness etc)

  • Peripheral screening tests


Manual Therapy: Volume 2A & B Biomechanical Assessment and Treatment: The Spine

This volume is the first part of the sub-series 2-4. It is two tapes (A and B) with A concerning the neck and B, the cervicothoracic, thoracic and lumbar regions. The tapes demonstrate the basic biomechanical assessment and treatment of the craniovertebral and cervical regions. It includes the craniovertebral ligament stress tests, passive physiological and accessory mobility tests, segmental stability tests and passive mobilization for these areas.

Manual Therapy: Volume 3 Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment: Upper Limb

This volume is the second in the subset and demonstrates assessment and treatment techniques of the upper limb. Assessment techniques include those designed by James Cyriax MD. with some additional stress tests especially in the shoulder and elbow and passive mobility and stability biomechanical tests. Treatment techniques include passive mobilizations in both the neutral and end range positions.

Manual Therapy: Volume 4 Biomechanical Assessment & Treatment: Lower Limb

This volume is the third in the subset and demonstrates assessment and treatment techniques of the lower limb. Assessment techniques include those designed by James Cyriax MD. with some additional stress tests especially in the, foot and ankle and passive mobility and stability biomechanical tests. Treatment techniques include passive mobilizations in both the neutral and end range positions.

Manual Therapy: Volume 5: Advanced Techniques

Volume 5 is four tapes demonstrating more advanced assessment and treatment techniques for the thoracic and lumbar spinal regions, the ribs, sacroiliac and temperomandibular joints and manipulative thrust technqiues for the peripheral joints. In addition, the quadrant tests and treatments are demonstrated on these tapes.

Manual Therapy: Volume 6 The Acute MVA Patient: Examination & Treatment

This stand-alone video contains over an hour of instruction and demonstration on the examination and manual treatment of the post-whiplash patient. It includes a short lecture on the anatomy and pathology of the vertebrobasilar system and the clinical effects of compromise of this system. In addition, central neurological testing procedures including cranial nerve and long tract examination are demonstrated.

The cervical differential diagnostic examination and biomechanical evaluation are also demonstrated. The differential diagnostic examination includes myotome, dermatome and reflex testing, range of motion and fracture tests as well as transverse and alar ligament stress testing. Biomechanical tests demonstrated are the segmental screening test, zygopophyseal and uncovertebral joint arthrokinematic assessments and segmental stability tests.

Approaches to treatment are discussed and manual techniques for mobilizing the zygopophyseal and uncovertebral joints are demonstrated.
