This Module covers the degenerative disorders of the cervical spine.

It is structured by reference to the anatomy, biomechanics and kinematics of the cervical spine. A section deals with the diagnostic evaluation and focuses on the specific imaging, neurophysiological assessment as well as diagnostic injection studies. The different pathologies like axial neck pain, cervical radiculopathy as well as cervical myelopathy are widely discussed in terms of clinical findings, pathophysiology and natural history, as well as the surgical and non-surgical treatment modalities.

Module Structure:
This Module consists of 18 online lectures.

Mode of Examination:
Each lecture has an online pre-learning quiz and concludes with a final lecture assessment. The final assessment of every lecture in a given module must be passed, before the learner can earn their NASS Certificate of Completion.

All online quizzes and assessments use a standard multiple choice question format.
