Evidence-Based Answers to Ten Common Patient Questions
Brian Anderson, D.C., M.P.H., M.S., Ph.D.
This two-hour seminar will review the published scientific literature regarding common questions patients ask during chiropractic care. These questions were generated using a combination of the authors’ 15 years of clinical and academic experience along with the results of a survey posted in a popular chiropractic Facebook group. Topics covered include the use of ice vs. heat, optimal sleeping positions/surfaces, the origin of the SMT audible release, risks of self-manipulation, prolonged sitting and its contribution to spine pain, the safety of post-surgical chiropractic care, utilization of supportive braces, postural effects on spine pain, and use of home traction units/inversion tables.
10 a.m.- 12 p.m.
Contemporary Active Care Principles and Protocols
Spencer Lindholm, D.C.
Current concepts of active care treatment in the chiropractic setting are often misunderstood or poorly utilized. There has been a recent progression in our understanding of evidence-informed active care management of musculoskeletal conditions which serves to greatly enhance outcomes for our patients. This course will cover the principles of rehabilitation which should serve as the foundation for active care treatment within the chiropractic setting. There is an emphasis on the multi-factorial nature of injury, including through the lens of the biopsychosocial model. You will learn the hallmarks of assessing the mechanism of injury from a mechanical standpoint, the basic framework of phased rehab, and gain an appreciation for building resiliency against future injuries.
