  • Neurology of the Posture System

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 03/05/2020 at 1:00 PM (EST)

    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 Includes a Live Event on 01/23/2020 at 1:00 PM (EST)

    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.

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

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 10/10/2019 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    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.

  • Building a Bulletproof Back Rehab Program Into Your Practice: Part 2

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 03/07/2019

    Join Dr. Daniel Bockmann for Part 2 of this course which provides comprehensive, practical instruction on how to introduce a simple, effective, evidence-informed low-back rehab program into any doctor’s practice, with little to no equipment needed. The course focuses on the key elements of any effective treatment protocol, including: how to take an airtight patient history, streamline your physical and orthopedic exam, prescribe a powerful treatment plan, gauge patient progress, and teach your patients how to maintain their results. This course provides the knowledge and skills necessary to enable the busy clinician to build an effective low-tech/no-tech rehab protocol into their practice, or streamline their existing one. Part 2 of this 2-part course will discuss how chiropractors can build an effective low-tech/no-tech rehab protocol into their practice by applying simple treatment tactics, using 5 clinical tools: spinal manipulation, stretches, massage/foam rolling, exercise & lifestyle modification. Upon completion of this course, registrants will also be able to create and explain return-to-work/return-to-play (RTP) guidelines for each patient that are safe, speedy and easy to understand.

  • The Power of Posture in Female Patients

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    In this webinar, Dr. Karen Erickson will explore normal and abnormal posture and it's impact on the female patient throughout her physiological journey. You will learn how to evaluate sitting, standing and sleeping posture as well as how phones and computers impact posture and health. Dr Erickson will elucidate the important role chiropractors can play in the healthcare of our female patients. Chiropractic care and patient education can help avoid downstream consequences of poor posture in girls and women including spinal curvature, spinal pain and degeneration, muscle imbalance, headache, respiratory dysfunction, ligament laxity and bone density.

  • The Lancet Low Back Pain Series: Why Chiropractors Should Care

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 01/08/2019

    In June of 2018 the landmark Lancet Low Back Pain Series was published. Professor Jan Hartvigsen was co-chair for the steering group. In this webinar he will present the content and key points from the series. These include description of what low back pain is and the burden and impact of low back pain on individuals and societies; current recommendations from evidence-based clinical guidelines and the evidence-practice gap that is apparent everywhere; promising new directions in management of low back pain; and finally, a global call to action for individuals, clinicians and decision makers. He will highlight the need for change in the way we deal with low back pain and musculoskeletal disorders and how chiropractors can be important stakeholders in promoting and leading this change.

  • Best Practices for Managing Lower Back Pain

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 11/15/2018

    Join Dr. Tim Bertelsman for this practical presentation will begin with a discussion of the current evidence-based evaluation and management of common lumbar structural pathology. The discussion will progress to review the most commonly overlooked “functional” problems that delay NMS recovery. In one way or another, these functional diagnoses contribute to many, if not all, of the lumbar structural diagnoses that chiropractors treat. Attendees will leave with immediately applicable, practical information for enhancing clinical outcomes.
