UNIT 4. MWM Techniques for the Scaphoid

  1. Apply a MWM technique for the scaphoid in both an open and closed chain position in a patient with wrist pain.

UNIT 9. Techniques for the Shoulder Girdle Part 1

  1. Evaluate whether the application of a MWM for the shoulder will also require a Cervical mobilization to address pain in the shoulder joint.

UNIT 10. MWM Techniques for the Shoulder Girdle Part 2.

  1. Demonstrate a MWM in the glenohumeral joint to restore pain free flexion when the humerus/humeral head is the offending positional fault in a patient with shoulder pain.
