Hour 4: Dr David Seaman will address how chronic inflammation can complicate the management of cervical radiculopathy and other conditions. The localized inflammatory activity within the affected nerve root can be impacted by systemic inflammatory factors, such as body fat mass, glycemic, hyperlipidemia, smoking, sedentary living, sleep abnormalities, and psychosocial issues. Both the peripheral and central nociceptive system can be impacted by these factors, which can easily be identified and addressed in an uncomplicated fashion.

Instructor: David Seaman, BS, DC, MS
