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

StrongPosture® protocols are short duration MCEs that assess, retrain and strengthen an individual’s unique patterns of postural alignment and balance from static stabilization to dynamic motion.

Attendees learn to systematically retrain compensatory and adaptive motion patterns on a granular level for precisely cued and highly targeted active rehab. Presented in Balance-Alignment-Motion (BAM) tracks to tailor patients self-care to their functional ability.  In addition, attendees learn to blend bio-mechanic education with digital photos for objectively benchmarking posture to engage people and build their personal posture awareness.

Posture is a growing concern in our slumping society.  From low back pain and “tech-neck” to NMS pain in general and aging boomers who want to stay active, everyone knows exercise is important to keep moving.  As patients experience improved body awareness and control with reduced pain, their perception of  the value of  posture care grows, along with their regard for the evidence oriented DC in a bio-mechanical practice model.

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.
