At a recent Modern Manual Therapy Seminar, I was fortunate enough to have blog reader, Dr. Ryan Foley attending.
The Clinical Practice Patterns I go over in Modern Manual Therapy Seminars and Premium state that if cervical retraction and SB is limited to the ipsilateral side of symptoms, that is a repeated loading strategy you should start with. Often the contralateral cervial spine and/or upper trap and levator scapula become sore from over "stretching."
Ryan came up with a novel modification to continue to load the ipsilateral side of complaint without stretching the contralateral side.
