Concussion Management and its Relation to the Cervical Spine
Ed Feinberg, D.C., DACBSP®
As concussion awareness continues to grow in our profession and throughout society, chiropractors should understand the developing science of brain injury. In addition to evaluating and managing brain injury, there is also growing evidence that cervical spine injury can be a significant component of the usual symptoms that these patients report. Furthermore, cervical spine management can reduce the risk and severity of concussion, suggesting a particular value for specific preseason training. This is why some of the best experts in concussion science have described the need for spinal specialists to be involved in concussion evaluation and care. During this presentation, we will describe evaluation and management plans for patients who experience concussion.

Doctors of Chiropractic as Primary Spine Practitioners: Opportunities and Challenges
Bill Meeker, D.C, M.P.H.
Chiropractors are perfectly positioned to solidify and expand their presence in the healthcare system by embracing the concept of primary spine care. Chiropractors are already associated with the spine and have a well-deserved reputation as effective patient-centered health providers. The current pain epidemic, along with concerns about opioid drug abuse, underlines the potential for Primary Spine Practitioners. This presentation examines opportunities and challenges for the chiropractic profession to execute this concept, which has the potential to bring chiropractic services to a wider public.

Body Awareness Skills to Help Patients Manage Their Symptoms and Enhance Regulation: Teaching and Learning Interceptive Awareness Skills in Clinical Care
Cynthia Price, Ph.D.
Interoceptive awareness is awareness of inner body sensations. Neuroscience research on interoception highlights the relationship between awareness of inner body sensations (i.e., interoception) and body regulation. This presentation introduces the concept of interoceptive awareness, and highlights research from studies with patients who have been taught interoceptive awareness skills to help them manage their mental and physical health conditions. Patients learn interoceptive awareness skills most easily when they are taught by practitioners who use touch; thus, this presentation will also describe strategies for teaching interoceptive awareness and the application to chiropractic care.

Discussion involving call to actions such as:

  • Prescribers should heed CDC guidelines and begin prescribing safer alternatives such as chiropractic care for chronic pain management.
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturers should institute more responsible marketing and physician education that will result in improved prescribing habits.
  • Hospital emergency rooms should evaluate their options for managing patients' pain without the use of opioid painkillers.
  • Payers and plan sponsors – both government and commercial – should make chiropractic care an accessible, affordable, option for chronic pain relief, with reimbursement of DCs as covered providers.

Chiropractic services should be expanded in the Department of Defense and veteran’s health care systems since neuro-musculoskeletal pain is one of the leading causes of disability in the active military and veteran populations.

Are Radiographs the Right Choice for My Pediatric Patient?
Tracey Littrell, D.C., DACBR, DACO, CCSP®
Worldwide, more than 3 billion diagnostic imaging examinations are performed every year. About 350 million of these are performed on children under 15 years of age. The individual risk from a necessary imaging exam is quite small when compared to the benefit of aiding accurate diagnosis or intervention. However, because of the increased risk of radiation exposure to younger patients, health care professionals must take special care in reducing radiation exposure to pediatric patients. This lecture will identify common challenges in pediatric imaging, discuss radiation exposure minimization, and examine pediatric conditions for which radiographs are most appropriate. Conditions covered will include congenital anomalies, pediatric trauma, pediatric overuse injuries, pediatric arthritides, and pediatric tumors.

Change Your Lens, Change Your Life
Michelle Barber, D.C., M.S.W.
“It’s the lens through which your brain views the world that shapes your reality. And if we can change the lens, not only can we change your happiness, we can change every single educational and business outcome at the same time.” – Shawn Achor

In this session we will look at how we view success and happiness and how we can capitalize on a powerful mindset that builds our personal momentum. Drawing on research from the fields of positive psychology and the psychology of wellness, we will address the ways that we hold ourselves back, the risk of burnout, and the attitudes/behaviors/habits that keep us from finding true happiness and wellness. We will then look at principles and actions that we can utilize to improve our performance and make the most of our potential. These principles can be applied in both our personal and professional relationships and will also be great tools to share with patients!

John Davila, D.C.
Sponsored by MedPro Group
When you review Medicare’s policy on medical necessity, you can’t help but realize they require a certain level of “function” to be included in our notes.
