This is a special webinar from the AAMA and will differ from the usual AAMA webinar format!  Join us for 90-minutes of education.  A one-hour pre-recorded video will be made accessible for viewing that includes demonstrations.  Then return to engage in 30-minutes of live presentation with Q & A. (Exact instructions provided to registrants.)


Attendees will learn how to manually muscle test the major muscles affecting the cervical spine region. Attendees will learn osteopathic manipulative medicine techniques for identifying somatic dysfunctions in the cervical spine region. This could include facet joint restrictions, myofascial restrictions, and muscle spindle-cell dysfunctions affecting the gamma loop. By acquiring these new skillsets of muscle testing and osteopathic manipulation techniques the attendee will have additional treatment approaches to offer their patients. Finally, attendees will learn specific effective acupuncture points for treating pain and dysfunction in the cervical spine.

Learning objectives

At the conclusion of this LIVE webcast physician participants will be able to:

  • Apply manual muscle testing during their evaluation of a patient’s cervical spine complaint.
  • Demonstrate loss of motion and specific dysfunctions of cervical spinal segments.
  • Assess the type of somatic dysfunction present in the cervical spine with appropriate acupuncture points included in the treatment plan.

Jay Sandweiss, DO, FAAMA

Dr. Sandweiss brings 42 years of clinical experience as a multi-faceted physician/healer and master course instructor. He has taught on numerous occasions for the AAMA and other medical organizations.

Since 1979, Dr. Sandweiss has presented his knowledge and skills nationally and internationally to many audiences that have included: medical doctors, osteopathic physicians, chiropractors, nurses, physical therapists, athletic trainers, certified massage therapists, and other health professionals. His courses often integrate manual muscle testing with palpation and treatment protocols from osteopathic manipulative medicine, medical acupuncture, and functional medicine algorithms. This synergistic approach is helpful for diagnosing and treating complex patient presentations. Attendees are offered a rich variety of manual medicine techniques, nutritional pearls and acupuncture for resolving somatic dysfunctions.

Over the past 32 years he has practiced medicine as an osteopathic physician who is board certified in: Neuromusculoskeletal medicine, osteopathic manipulative medicine and medical acupuncture. His avid interest in functional/nutritional medicine over the past 42 years allows him to also look at problems through a nutritional/metabolic lens that explores cellular physiology while simultaneously assessing the more macro-ergonomic effects of somatic dysfunctions on a disrupted anatomy.

Finally, Dr. Sandweiss has been practicing and teaching several martial arts since 1974, including Karate, Kung Fu, and Aikido. He continues to teach martial arts seminars in Atlanta every few years. In 1977-1978, Jay Sandweiss lived in Taiwan and Okinawa studying with famous Karate and Kung Fu grandmasters. His martial arts training has given him a refined kinesthetic awareness and insight about kinesiology and body language. Thus, Dr. Sandweiss brings to his courses a unique blend of approaches for managing many health conditions including pain, stress, and musculoskeletal dysfunctions. At his office, he is a “one-stop shop” offering his patients osteopathic manipulation, medical acupuncture, functional medicine, exercise prescription, and basic family medicine. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a truly gifted teacher!
