1. Sibson's fascia 2. Anterior cervical 3. Posterior cervical 4. Vascular compartment

3

How do you release Sibson's fascia?

Stand on R side of supine patient, curl fingers of R hand into Sibson's fascia, using L hand and arm to support patient's R UE. Rhythmically abduct and flex RUE while increasing pressure over Sibson's fascia. Repeat L side, reversing hand holds.

Prevertebral fascia

 

 

5

What (3) layers of cervical fascia comprise the visceral compartment?

1. Buccopharyngeal (and pharyngobasilar)

2. Pretracheal

3. Alar 

6

What layer of cervical fascia comprises the vascular compartment?

carotid fascia

7

How you do treat the posterior neck compartment for lymphatic release?

—Stand on one side of the supine patient

—Rest cephalad hand on their forehead

—Gently grasp the posterior aspect of the neck

—Rhythmically turn their head toward the same side while pulling the musculature toward you

—Repeat on the other side

8

How do you treat the anterior compartment for lymphatic release?

—Stand on one side of the supine patient

—Rest cephalad hand on their forehead

—Gently grasp the anterior aspect of the neck

—Rhythmically turn their head toward the same side while gently pulling the musculature toward you

—Repeat on the other side
