    I really enjoyed this course. I like the movie format because it is close to actually being at a course, but you can pause and rewind if you would like to hear/see something again.

    The course was very informative and easy to follow.
     
       
    This was a good, basic look at cervical anatomy and evaluation. I have already used several aspects learned in the course in my daily practice. I would recommend it to either beginners as a learning tool or experienced therapists as a review.
