Join Dr. Andre Bussieres for this webinar that will review neck pain and its treatment. Neck pain is one of the leading cause of disability wordwide, and the cost of neck pain treatment is rapidly increasing.

The project lead will present the key recommendations on the conservative management of NAD and WAD, and discuss their implication for clinical practice. He will also share available tools and resources to help apply these in practice.
A Common Link Between Alzheimer’s, Arthritis and Metabolic DisordersContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
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.
