Manual Therapy for the Cervical Spine, Thoracic Spine & Ribs

Manual therapy for the Cervical Spine, Thoracic Spine and Ribs is one of my favorite classes. I especially love evaluation and treatment for the ribs.  When a rib dysfunction is present, it can cause so many unsuspecting problems.  So many different muscles attach to the ribs in one way or another and because of this, determining the originating location for the pain can be illusive and frustrating.  The muscle energy techniques that we learned in this class are so useful and the resulting structural changes can be quite dramatic.  Let us know what you think!  What impact have the treatment techniques had on your practice?
