  • Home Ergonomics During COVID-19

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 10/27/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Join Dr. Scott Bautch for a webinar examining how doctors of chiropractic can keep their patients active, adaptive, and healthy at home through ergonomics during the COVID-19 pandemic. This course will help doctors of chiropractic to better understand the unique challenges of working and studying from home. This will include reviewing mechanical ergonomics versus human ergonomics; discussing the unique challenges of working from home, such as workstation design with limited resources and lack of mobility; designing a home care program for people working and studying from home; and reviewing what early data is saying about the health effects of working from home both physically and emotionally.

  • The Relationship of the Diaphragm, Respiration and Posture

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 10/01/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Join Dr. Robert George, DC, CCSP for this webinar examining chiropractic, posture, and the diaphragm. The diaphragm is not only a muscle of respiration, but it is also a pelvic and spinal stabilizer that influences spinal position. Natural human asymmetries, including asymmetrical differences of the diaphragm left and right side, contribute to patterns and positions of the pelvis as airflow into the thorax determines position and posture of the entire axial spine. Understanding human asymmetries, the diaphragm, patterned respiration, and chains of muscles as they direct position and posture will provide a framework for effective treatment and performance strategies. Without integrating the diaphragm to reposition, retrain and restore balanced function within an asymmetrical framework, many of our treatment approaches will be defeated by repetitive patho-mechanical compensation and an over reliance on accessory muscles of respiration.

  • Treatment of Post-Surgical Continued Spine Pain (PSCP) Using Cox® Flexion Distraction: A Discussion of Past, Present and Future Research

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/18/2020

    This on-demand presentation by Dr. James Cox, DC and Dr. Ralph Kruse, DC will discuss the treatment of post-surgical continued spine pain patients starting with case studies and progressing through retrospective reviews and ending with the current prospective multi-practice IRB approved study at Keiser University.

  • Ten Evidence-Informed Ways to Improve the Effectiveness of the Adjustment

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 04/16/2020

    Join Dr. David I Graber, DC for this presentation on how improve the effectiveness of Chiropractic adjustments by applying some of the latest evidence. Dr. Graber will discuss neurological, mechanical, and contextual effects of spinal manipulation. He will then explore the most accurate methods of analysis for finding where and how to adjust a patient. Finally, Dr. Graber will examine the adjustment itself, citing natural history, contextual effects, and the physical procedure performed.

  • Neurology of the Posture System

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 03/05/2020

    The purpose of this presentation by Dr. Krista Burns, DC, is to illustrate the neurology of the Posture System, provide evidence-based research of how "Tech Neck" posture is impacting brain and physical function, and to demonstrate brain-based postural correction strategies that Doctors of Chiropractic can integrate into their clinical treatment plans. With the rampant decline of posture from being on smartphones and seated workers at their computers, this is a relevant and timely presentation. "Tech Neck" is a public health concern in the digital age that is impacting the quality of lives of adolescents and adults.

  • Mastering The Disc: Mechanical Assessment of the Spine

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 01/23/2020

    Join Dr. Jonathan Michael Lesch, DC for a webinar which will examine the mechanical properties of spinal discs and how they are the predominant cause of pain in back and neck conditions. Dr. Lesch will discuss how to definitively diagnose the source of back and neck problems through various tests and evidence-based guidelines. He will then explore research which will help registrants better understand the mechanical functions and characteristics of a disc, including discussing issues like disc bulging, directional preference, obstruction to extension, and more. Finally, Dr. Lesch will then identify specific treatment plans which can both assist chiropractors in their treatment and education of their patients, and aid in patient self-treatment.

  • Practice-based Research Network: The Influence of Chiropractic Distraction Spinal Manipulation on Balance in Patients with Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 12/12/2019

    In a study on practice-based research networks (PBRNs) in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, they concluded, "Ensuring the successful development and conduct of clinical trials in PBRNs requires a highly collaborative approach between academic research and PBRN teams." Join Dr. Kurt Olding, DC for this session which will outline the process of developing and implementing a study using a PBRN. A step by step approach will be outlined, emphasizing the balance between the researcher's needs and the practicality of implementing the protocols into an office setting. Points will be discussed, utilizing examples from a present ongoing study being developed on the chiropractic treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis and its effects on balance and fall risk.

  • Realistic Active Care Plans for Chronic LBP: Leveraging Design Thinking and Behavioral Economics

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/10/2019

    Design thinking has been leveraged to create some of the most successful consumer products. Behavioral economics is being applied to leverage natural human behavior for creating healthier habits and better choices. The impact of design thinking and behavioral economics has been an emerging field of study specifically around the field of public health. This course by Dr. Isaac Borowiec, DC applies these cutting-edge behavioral sciences to the chiropractic practice so you can create active care plans that are sticky and work for each individual patient. In this lecture, we apply these concepts specifically to chronic lower back pain.

  • The CRISP® Protocols for Primary Spine Care

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Join Dr. Donald R. Murphy, DC, FRCC for a webinar which introduces an evidence-informed, patient-centered approach to the application of the biopsychosocial model in the diagnosis and management of patients with spine-related disorders. Clinical Reasoning in Spine Pain® (CRISP®) was developed based on the vast literature in the spine filed over a period of over 20 years. We will cover the utilization of the CRISP® protocols to establish a working diagnosis, considering the various potential biological, psychological and social contributing factors, and embark on a management strategy designed to address each factor.

  • The Role of the Primary Spine Provider in Health Care

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Join Dr. John Ventura for an introduction to the role of the primary spine provider in an ever-changing health care environment. The challenges that spine pain and impairment present to society will be discussed, and the reasons that our current model of spine care has not been successful. The role of a primary spine practitioner (PSP) will be discussed as a possible solution, as well as the specific skill set necessary to function as a PSP. Data supported the benefits of utilizing PSPs will be discussed.
