In our latest video, Dr. Thomason demonstrates how different the size of vertebrae are on an actual patient when compared to the typical plastic models we see in the clinic. Our subject for this demonstration is a younger male that is about 5’6″ in height.
As part of this video, a lumbar vertebra and thoracic vertebra are shown. Also, methods to confirm which transverse and spinous processes correspond to one another are demonstrated. All of this is to illustrate how to confirm where you are palpating when assessing position/motion, or setting up for a treatment technique.
