    Many are familiar with concussion diagnosis when sports are involved. But few think of concussions when witnessing falls in the park, at the airport, at the grocery store, or at home. As chiropractors ARE seeing AND TREATING concussed patients, do we know the ethical boundaries in place when witnessing, diagnosing, and treating these injuries? Micky Collins published this article in 2016 that looked at concussion approaches from a multidisciplinary perspective in which he referenced his 6 subtypes of concussion: 1. Migraine (+ Autonomic and Sleep), 2. Affective (Mood), 3. Cognitive, 4. Cervical, 5. Oculomotor/Vision, 6. Vestibular Attendees will learn what a concussed individual goes through from the time they get injured until they are diagnosed. As well, all chiropractors will be reminded of how each discipline looks at and has the authority to treat concussions through their scope.

    Learning Objectives

    • Identify concussion in one of the six subtypes
    • Differentiate your scope of practice when in the office, in public area, in Athletic Team of High School or College Programs
    • Demonstrate one diagnostic test that can be used to quickly identify a concussed individual

This class takes a hands-on approach for chiropractic attendees to widen their consideration of diagnosis when this very common symptom is presented. Attendees will be able to better avoid medical treatment errors when they are looking for red flags that this multifaceted approach considers. 

    Learning Objectives

    Course Description 

    Women in the US make approximately 80% of the health care decisions for their families, yet often go without health care coverage themselves. Simultaneously many chiropractors are uncomfortable adjusting female concerns outside of headaches, low back or extremity pain. With females having such a large influence on healthcare choices for their families, we need to make sure chiropractors are comfortable in discussing, diagnosing, and adjusting issues related to only females. 

    This lecture is designed to provide new and innovative techniques to handle thoracic pain in females, pelvic constipation, PMS, and pelvic disorder. Having top-of-mind access to different ways of treatments will help avoid risk and provide confidence in the best way to naturally heal. During our 2 hours together, we will break up into 3 groups and provide hands-on demonstration and training.

    Course Description 

    Every chiropractor is treating athletes from pee-wee to high school to the professionals, and many high school teams are taking a play from “The Pro’s” and beginning to include chiropractors as part of the on-site medical staff. As the popularity of the team chiropractor grows, we all need to be prepared to handle both the treatment and the documentation appropriately. When you are with an athlete on the field, at practice or in the training room, efficiency is key. This course will be held in an interview fashion with Chiropractors from Pro Baseball teams & Pro Hockey teams. These interviews will outline the differences of documentation when treating athletes in your office vs. in the training room, when to refer to other professionals on the sports medicine team, as well as how you get paid and when/where to send the bills. The Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act of 2018 allows an athlete or a team to travel and treat in other states, but how you document the coordination of care during travel might depend on the type of team or athlete you are traveling with. Whether you are considering being a chiropractor for a local or professional team, knowing the details of this class will aid your communication with the community that you treat! 

    Learning Objectives 

    • Identify when to treat/document/record your patient-athlete encounter as well as what CPT codes are appropriate 

    • Recognize when to document the coordination of care when referring to other professionals 

    • Differentiate the treatment protocols between athletes in the office vs. training room

    Course Description 

    Although 15% of Americans are currently under care of a chiropractor, most Americans know Chiropractic care for reducing pain with a non-pharmacological approach in 2 major areas: low back pain and headaches.

    Course Description 

    Women in the US make approximately 80% of the health care decisions for their families, yet often go without health care coverage themselves. Simultaneously many chiropractors are uncomfortable adjusting female concerns outside of headaches, low back or extremity pain. With females having such a large influence on healthcare choices for their families, we need to make sure chiropractors are comfortable in discussing, diagnosing, and adjusting issues related to only females. 

    This lecture is designed to provide new and innovative techniques to handle thoracic pain in females, pelvic constipation, PMS, and pelvic disorder. Having top-of-mind access to different ways of treatments will help avoid risk and provide confidence in the best way to naturally heal. During our 2 hours together, we will break up into 3 groups and provide hands-on demonstration and training.
