GENERAL NOTES FOR LOWER CERVICALS:
> Cervical adjustments as presented at this level, should be performed in the Cervical Chair.( More advanced techniques may take advantage of the knee-chest, and the Zenith Hi-Lo table)> The line of correction should include a slight lift at the beginning of the thrust to bring the vertebra up "into the saddle" and then follow the disk plane line> Modify the disk plane to suit the individual patient during a thrust.> Stabilization hand should be held steady and not "whipped". Too much thenar pressure will cause a "whip" of the head> Stabilization hand should contact the antero-lateral neck at the level below the one you are adjusting.You should think about "catching" the vertebra you are adjusting at the MCP or distal portion of your index and middle finger of the stabilizing han> Extension of the neck should not bring the chin past level; only enough to cause the segment you are adjusting to just begin to move.> Spinous contacts are at the posterior, inferior lateral aspect of the Spinous.> The location of the lamina contact is approximately 1/8" lateral and 1/8" superior to the cervical spinous process.> Torques: Right side contacts are clockwise, and left side contacts are counter-clockwise (we are always contacting the open wedge side).> Remember to "squash the grape" when you thrust - it will give you speed and help with the appropriate torque.> Keep your muscles relaxed until you actually thrust, a tight muscle has no speed. Most of the speed and depth occur within the first 1-1 1/2 inches.> All gonstead adjustments are a thrust and HOLD for a beat - this takes advantage of ligamentous creep.LOC must take into account facets anddisk plane. Disk planes vary frompatient to patient so set angles areinappropriate. The doctor must alignhim/herself with the patient's disk andthen align slightly lower toaccommodate the facets.Each segment will require an I-S lift(relative to that segment) and then thethrust should aim along the plane of thedisk (which is essentially perpendicularto the patien's back at that level).

LOC is across the line of the shoulders, through the plane of the atlas> Hand position, AS listings: Somewhat flat hand, thumb pulled in tight, slight wrist extension, lateral index finger along suboccipital musculature.Line of Drive: across the plane line of the atlas (send your thrust out the opposite TVP of atlas)For AI listings: The patient is on the knee-chest table with the side of laterality turned upward. The doctor is standingon the side the patient's face is turned toward (i.e. AIR: Rule - RIGHT side up, RIGHT hand contact, Doc on the Pt's RIGHT)remember: "right,right,right/left,left,left"> "squashing the grape" under your arm as you thrust helps you produce the appropriate torque and improves your speed.> AS listings may be performed on the knee -chest with reversed torque. AI listings may be performed in the chair with the patient's chin raisedand torque reversed; the notes in the grid above represent, however, the preferred methodsContact hand is slightly cupped, thumbin tight, wrist in slight extension.A relaxed hand is much faster here.Let the lateral portion of your indexfinger lay along the base of thepatient's skull to monitor the tension onthe sub-occipital musculature. Raisethe patient's chin slightly until thesemuscles relax.
