This practical and entertaining 10-hour class will begin with a discussion of the current evidence-based evaluation and management of common lumbopelvic structural pathology. The presentation will include video demonstrations of every essential evaluation, treatment technique, and exercise for the most common low back disorders. The discussion will progress to review five commonly overlooked “functional” problems that delay NMS recovery. In one way or another, these functional diagnoses contribute to many, if not all, of the lumbopelvic structural diagnoses that chiropractors treat.  The class concludes by sharing current knowledge about choosing a treatment classification for low back pain. 

September 14-15, 2019: Differential Diagnosis of Neuromusculoskeletal Conditions (10 hours). James Demetrious, DC, FACO

Dr. James Demetrious will present a 10-hour postgraduate education course pertaining to the Differential Diagnosis of Neuromuscular Conditions in the chiropractic setting. Relevant learning opportunities will be presented utilizing actual clinical case presentations. Careful review of current evidence-based practices and appropriateness criteria will be combined with clinically intuitive rationales.

October 12-13 2019: Saturday: Differential Diagnosis & Rehabilitation of Posture & Balance with Motor
Control Exercise, Steven Weiniger, DC, CPEP (6 hours)

Sunday: Pain Management and Tissue Healing: From onset to resolution with laser therapy. Nelson
Marquina, DC, Ph.D. (4 hours)

Dr. Marquina provides scientific, safety, and video demonstrations to ensure high proficiency in the safe and effective use of therapeutic lasers for physical medicine practitioners. In this 4-hour program, you’ll learn the most effective methods for pain management, resolving inflammation, and increasing the speed, quality and strength of tissue repair. Lasers are powerful tools for pain management and tissue healing when used by, or under the supervision of, a trained practitioner with expertise in advanced treatment techniques. Dr. Marquina will extensively use materials from the chapter that he authored titled Energy Medicine: Focus on Lasers published in The Scientific Basis of Integrative Health, 3rd edition (CRC Press, 2017). This chapter provides the scientific basis for the clinical application of lasers, illuminating the capabilities of therapeutic laser light to be safely absorbed by human tissues and organs for pain management, improved physiological functions and cellular regeneration.

November 16-17, 2019: Mastering the Assessment and Management of Shoulder and Upper Extremity
Problems. Brandon Steele DC, FACO (10 hours)

Rotator cuff injuries alone account for 4.5 million physician office visits per year. Management of this problem can range from frustrating to rewarding depending on the depth of your training.  This class is a practical 10-hour workshop outlining everything participants need to know about successfully treating shoulder and elbow problems. This class will review the current “best practices” for evaluation, treatment and home rehab. You’ll leave this class with greater understanding and confidence about how to manage the most common problems that affect the shoulder and upper extremity.
