  • Home Ergonomics During COVID-19

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/27/2020

    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 New Rehab: Empowering Your Patients With World-Class Home Programs

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/06/2020

    With the new “work-from-home” reality, our patients face unique challenges to their health. The lack of a traditional work space, less accessibility to healthcare and limitations on group exercise mean that creative solutions are needed. In this course, Dr. Daniel Bockmann will outline how to easily adapt your practice to these critical needs. He will discuss: Simple home workstation setup & optimization tips; building a powerful Youtube rehab library to supplement your patients’ home care; incorporating impressive “rehab homework” emails for patients; and easy home fitness guidelines your patients will love

  • The Relationship of the Diaphragm, Respiration and Posture

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/01/2020

    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.

  • NCMIC Presents Risk Management Case Studies- Claims Overview

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This course will enlighten the attendees on the current trends of malpractice claims. Case studies will be reviewed which will allow the attendee to identify and adapt to potential risks that could have been avoided by identifying, assessing and using strategies to manage risk in caring for the patient. Time will be spent going over multiple cases. Heidi will discuss the basics of malpractice and will help define the 4 elements in a malpractice case. Duty owed, breach of that duty, proximate cause and damages. We will discuss board related grievances and how this may affect malpractice claims. Time will also be spent on the “me too” movement and the impact this has on physicians and potential board grievances.

  • Building a Bulletproof Shoulder & Neck Rehab Program Into Your Practice

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/17/2019

    Join Dr. Daniel Bockmann for a course which provides detailed instruction on how to introduce a simple, effective, evidence-informed shoulder and neck rehab program into any doctor's practice, with little to no equipment needed. This rehab protocol is easily adaptable for all patients with shoulder or neck conditions, irrespective of age, activity level or general health status. Dr. Bockmann will begin with a brief discussion of the primary causes of mechanical problems in the neck and shoulder complex, how they arise, and how they are best assessed. The course defines simple treatment tactics, employing the 5 most effective clinical tools for shoulder and neck conditions: spinal manipulation, stretches, massage/myofascial release, exercise and lifestyle modification. He will discuss how both technique problems (whether in life or sport), and systemic problems (disease, deficiency, dehydration, lack of sleep, etc.) can overlay a mechanical problem, and slow healing or prevent recovery, and much more!

  • The Pre-participation Physical and Sports Concussion Management

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/15/2019

    Join Dr. Carlo Guadagno DC, CCSP, ICCSP, FICC for an in-depth look at how chiropractic can play a role in pre-participation physical exams and concussion management. The primary objective of this course is to familiarize registrants to with the basic aspects of conducting a pre-participation sports physical and develop a working knowledge, application, and investigation of this concentration within chiropractic medicine. This course will also cover the management of sports concussion within the chiropractic office setting; ethical and medico-legal issues, sports nutrition, and a focus on a series of evaluations, diagnoses, and treatments that are common within sports medicine.

  • 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.

  • Fall Prevention: Improving Strength, Balance and Flexibility in Older Adults

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/08/2019

    Older adults are the fastest growing population in the United States. Falls are a major public health concern in older adults, and the leading cause of injury-related death in this age group. Chiropractors are well-suited by their training and expertise to assess fall risk in older adults and implement evidence-based fall prevention strategies. In this session, Dr. Lisa Killinger, DC, will examine the issue of fall prevention in older adults. She will explore why older patients fall and review evidence-based assessment tools related to fall risk. Strategies to improve several of the key causes of falls will be shared. Simple steps will be discussed to improve the balance, strength and flexibility of older adult patients, while not ignoring the role posture plays in falls as well.
