The Transgender AthleteContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 09/10/2019 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Transgender athletes are a special population group that are becoming more prevalent in our practices, but they are not new to the realm of sports. Looking historically at the progression of female athletics can provide an understanding of the current rules and regulations. Providers need an understanding of the rules and regulation of play for the athletes. Along with common conditions and concerns for the transgender athlete, it is important to understand documentation and billing. In this webinar, Dr. Melissa MacDonald will examine the role that chiropractors play in the treatment of transgender athletes. After viewing this course, registrants will be able to recognize the rules of play for high school, college, and professional athletes; discuss how to verbally communicate with transgender patients; and explain common concerns and need for medical tracking in office.
Chiropractic Adjusting in Elder Patients: Lowering Risk of Adverse EventsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 09/24/2019 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Older adults are the fastest growing population in most developed nations. Precious few educational resources exist to train chiropractors in the safe, effective care of older adults. Normal aging creates several important risks related to chiropractic adjusting. In this webinar by Dr. Lisa Killinger, DC, strategies will be demonstrated and discussed to enhance the safety and comfort of adjusting aging patients. Recent literature on chiropractic techniques will be woven into the discussion as a “least invasive to most invasive” approach to clinical chiropractic procedures will be offered. Finally, methods to lowering our risk of adverse events will be explored.
Fall Prevention: Improving Strength, Balance and Flexibility in Older AdultsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 10/08/2019 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
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.
Realistic Active Care Plans for Chronic LBP: Leveraging Design Thinking and Behavioral EconomicsContains 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.

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.
Building a Bulletproof Shoulder & Neck Rehab Program Into Your PracticeContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 10/17/2019 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
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!
Informatics, the Electronic Health Record, and the Chiropractic ProfessionContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 11/07/2019 at 1:00 PM (EST)
In this presentation by Dr. Brian C. Coleman, DC, we seek to describe the importance of biomedical informatics as applied to the chiropractic profession, namely through the use of the electronic health record (EHR). We introduce the field of biomedical informatics, and subfields of clinical informatics and public health informatics, as they relate to the chiropractic profession. We discuss the types of data collected in the EHR, uses of these data in informatics applications, and the current state of the chiropractic profession with respect to EHR data. We identify the use and significance of informatics and EHR data as a vehicle for improving the chiropractic profession in three fields (academic training, clinical practice, and research) through health information exchange, data-driven quality improvement, and increased opportunity for interfacing and integration with other healthcare professionals.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury & Concussion: An Invisible and Confusing ConditionContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 11/12/2019 at 1:00 PM (EST)
Join Dr. James Lehman for a webinar which will discuss post-traumatic brain injuries with a focus on mild traumatic brain injuries & concussions, which frequently present to chiropractic physicians that care for athletes and patients injured in motor vehicle incidents. Individuals are usually not aware of their mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBI) and often do not seek care. In order to enhance the discovery of patients with MTBI and the bloodless concussion, evaluation and management procedures will be presented that will enhance differential diagnosis. Online traumatic brain injury resources will be listed and strongly recommended for each of the attendees.
Chiropractic Inclusion in Public Health Service ProgramsContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 11/14/2019 at 8:00 PM (EST)

Specific outcomes, barriers, and additional public health service opportunities will be discussed.

A Common Link Between Alzheimer’s, Arthritis and Metabolic DisordersContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Event on 01/16/2020 at 1:00 PM (EST)
This presentation by Dr. Robert Silverman, DC will explore the commonalities between Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and metabolic disorders. They can all be induced by systemic gut bacterial toxins. The pathogens involved in gut dysbiosis possess inflammatory toxins such as lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and cytolethal distending toxins (CDT). The release of these toxins in the gut opens intestinal tight junctions and degrades epithelial cells allowing for unfettered infiltration of LPS and CDT into the periphery. Once in circulation, the inflammatory LPS and CDT can travel throughout the body, opening the blood-brain barrier, inflaming joint tissues, dysregulating the thyroid, and initiating insulin resistance. This therapeutic opportunity applies to many of the patients seen each week. Detection of systemic bacterial toxins can guide an appropriate gut-healing protocol. Repairing and maintaining the intestinal barrier is a key component in combating many extra-intestinal disorders.
