Cancer, Chronic Illness and DD Palmer with Tedd Koren, D.C.
This course looks at healthcare viewpoints of cancer, chronic illness add how it relates to chiropractic’s awareness of toxins, trauma and auto-suggestion. Doctors of chiropractic will learn how their unique healthcare perspective can influence clinical decision-making, research, education, legislation and utilization. Understanding the differences in perspective helps better clearly see the unique offering chiropractic brings to the healthcare consumer. (2 hrs.)
Chiropractic in Pregnancy for Safer, Easier Births with Jeanne Ohm, D.C.
This course offers specific skills in caring for the pregnant mother through a family wellness model through understanding the physiology of pregnancy to evaluate and substantiate the need for chiropractic care throughout pregnancy and the chiropractic management and role throughout pregnancy for the prevention of dystocia in birth based in physiological, technological and emotional stress. A review of current research on the injurious effects of modern birth includes c- sections, breech births and other technologically assisted births, explaining the necessity of chiropractic care throughout pregnancy for safer, easier births. (2 hrs.)
Educating Kids about Chiropractic
How to empower the children with knowledge about chiropractic care to eliminate fear and gain knowledge in the avenues involving subluxations correction of children. Doctors will learn methods and techniques of eliminating fear and educating children on the methods and philosophy of chiropractic with suggestions of how to set up the officefor children, dealing with fear in the office, how to give a child’s orientation, how to talk about children in a report of findings, and how to give a report of findings to a child. (2 hrs.)
Gonstead System, Introduction
Students will learn the history of Gonstead Technique/System and an overview of the five criteria for detection of Vertebral Subluxation. The spinal biomechanics of the cervical spine will be discussed with a demonstration & review of seated and prone cervical spine adjustment. A case study of cervical spine injury with x-rays will be presented. The third and fourth sessions will discuss the thoracic and lumbar spine respectively.
This program focuses on the 33 Chiropractic Principles as put forth in 1927 by Ralph W. Stephenson, DC. The program will focus on describing and “unpacking” 6 of the 33 Principles and how they relate to current philosophical practice in Chiropractic.

Early imaging techniques will be contrasted with modern advancement in upper cervical imaging for the specific upper cervical vertebral subluxation compleand how the subluxation affects the neurology of the individual pathways.
Muscle Palpation: A tonal approach to Spinal Analysis with Ron Castellucci, D.C., A.C.P.
This course presents the study of muscle palpation techniques for the cervical spine. General muscle physiology, the concept of proprioception and mechanoreceptors involved with the muscle stretch reflex will be reviewed. The vertebral subluxation as a dynamic, biomechanical entity and its effect upon the intrinsic para-spinal muscles will be discussed. Cervical spine muscle palpation examination protocols will be discussed, demonstrated and practiced. Student will demonstrate basic proficiency in proper muscle palpation analysis procedures for the cervical spine, and gain an appreciation for basic muscle physiology as applied to muscle palpation techniques.
