How to do a Neck CAR (controlled articular rotation)
The basic articulations:
The Cervical CAR (controlled articular rotation):
Start in flexion and begin to rotate the cervical spine to the end range in one direction, maintain flexion.
Move the spine into lateral flexion on the same side
Remaining in rotation on the same side, enter into extension
While fully rotated in extension, rotate in the opposite direction (maintain extension)
Now rotated in the other direction, move the spine into lateral flexion on that same side
Finish by entering into flexion while maintaining full rotation
Release into neutral
Always express current end ranges
Repeat again or in the opposite direction if desired
