Cervical Spine Dynamic Stability/Kinetic Control
- By Mark Comerford
Mark Comerford ExercisesThese Mark Comerford exercises are compiled to help the therapist provide instruction to the client on therapeutic or corrective movement of the cervical spine.
These Mark Comerford exercises are designed for the therapist who has an understanding or is familiar with dynamic stability/kinetic control or movement dysfunction concepts. The exercises are done in different positions and include control neutral (stabilisers), control direction (flexion, lateral flexion, extension, rotation), control range and stretches for upper trapezius, pectoralis minor, rhomboids, levator scapulae, anterior scalene, middle scalene, posterior scalene, sterno-cleido-mastoid, ligamentum nuchae, sub occipital extensor, posterior cervico-thoracic mobiliser, posterior cervico-thoracic mobiliser and hyoids. The concept of dynamic stability/kinetic control and the analysis and correction of movement dysfunction is an ongoing process of development based on clinical application and an increasing body of academic research.
