World Class Adjustment Part I
Location TBA

With more and more modalities being added to treat patients in chiropractic offices, adjustment has become an afterthought for many. Not surprisingly, a multi-modal approach is where evidence continues to point. However, this has led to a natural decay in palpatory and adjustment skill level. Adjustment is a powerful tool that should be used to enhance other treatment modalities, not be replaced.  Participants will be shown current research on adjustment and how it applies to clinical practice and other modalities. Next, the importance of dynamic palpation will be discussed. Dynamic palpation tells the chiropractor exactly where to perform adjustment and which planes of motion to include. Finally, an in-depth analysis will be done on how to be great at adjustment.  Because being great at adjustment is a psychomotor skill, certain skills need to be learned and practiced to achieve mastery.

Livewired: The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain

We’ll see how a child can function with one half of his brain removed, how a blind man can hit a baseball via a sensor on his tongue, how new devices and body plans can enhance our natural capacities, how paralyzed people will soon be able to dance in thought-controlled robotic suits, how we can build the next generation of devices based on the principles of the brain, and what all this has to do with why we dream at night.

As a Federal program, Medicare charges are governed by rules that relate to your charges and discounts. While these rules often roll over to other types of third-party reimbursement scenarios, you must toe the line with Medicare in a very specific manner.

LSS is a leading cause of pain, disability, and loss of independence in people over the age of 65. Up to 47% of people over the age of 65 will suffer from LSS. With the aging population and because people are living longer, we are experiencing a soaring rise in the number of people suffering from LSS. Over 20 million Americans will suffer from LSS in the next 15 years. Chiropractors are well positioned by their training and skills to make a significant impact in improving walking ability and quality of life in people with LSS. They should and can be the experts in non-operative treatment of LSS.

Session is limited to 50 attendees and additional fees apply.
