In this course, you will study the three primary areas of trauma as they relate to whiplash: physical laws, evaluation and treatment. The instructor will present appropriate lecture, demonstration, and supervised hands-on lab sessions addressing such topics as restrictions in the meningeal system; soft tissues of the cervical and cervicobrachial regions; and the lumbosacral region.
You will obtain maximum benefit from the class if you have a working knowledge of cranial bones, sutures and intracranial membranes. A few sample questions you should be able to answer are:
1. The coronal suture is between what 2 bones?
2. The occipito-mastoid suture/jugular foramen is between what 2 bones?
3. The falx cerebri is predominately (or mostly) under what suture?
4. The attachments of the tentorium cerebelli are:
a. frontal bone, petrouss part of temporal bone, occiput
b. occiput, parietal, temporal, bones, anterior and posterior clinoid processes of sphenoid bone
c. occiput, parietal and temporal bones, maxilla
