Spinal examination of a 6 month old infant

Added Feb 2023

In this video we focus on the spinal examination of the infant. This is a procedure which you should practice many times over, as it is certainly NOT the same as palpating an adult spine. With time, and practice, the examination of an infant’s spine will become second nature to you. However, when you begin, it may be very different to anything you have done before. Make sure you watch the video numerous times until you can confidently and safely examine the spine of an infant.
