Hi guys, I have been following your videos for some time and find them very useful for refreshing the techniques I regularly use. I particularly appreciate the addition of supporting evidence for each technique and love the addition of the levels of clinical value that you nprescribe your tests (your traffic light system).
I was wondering idf you have considered doing videos looking at regional anatomy and the tests you would do for each region personally and considering this traffic light system.

e.g. Neck testing... In this video we would look at our battery of tests for someone presenting with neck pain (presuming you didn't figure it out mostly already from the Hx). We would use... Spurlings, compression, distraction etc as these tests all have the highest clinical value out of the test we have assessed...

I would love to see some videos like this from you guys breaking down which tests you would use for certain regions or perhaps certain suspected pathologies and their common differentials to show your Dx sieving procedure?

Thanks and keep up the good work!

If the pain arises on the contralateral side of the neck while performing the spurling tst ...the possible diagnosis is?

What about adding lateral rotation to the affected side as the 3rd level of provocation? Since extension, lateral flexion and lateral rotation all narrow the diameter of the vertebral foramen.
