- Introduction—discussion of current healthcare trends, contributors to the healthcare “crisis” and possible solutions, particularly as it pertains to chiropractic
- A biomechanical model is the model of choice to care for the middle and high school athlete. This is a massive population and biomechanically minded chiropractors are the best suited to care both preventatively and therapeutically for this group. We will review the relevant biomechanical information needed to approach this group.
- The Atlas Operating System. This is a system for optimal approach with patients from a clinical perspective. The system divides all patients into two categories, acute and non-acute, then gives a step-by-step approach for maximum clinical outcome.
- Caring for the Acute Injury. Specific clinical protocols in dealing with the acutely injured patient, ranging from diagnosis to treatment.
- The Structural Fingerprint® Exam. A detailed, hands-on, explanation of this biomechanical exam, with discussion of each test, the relevance, interpretation and recommendations needed. As time allows, we will have attendees perform this exam on each other, and will interpret all findings and discuss appropriate recommendations. This is one of the benefits of having this program in my office, as all testing can be done in-house.
- Custom Orthotics and Digital Scanning. A detailed overview as to the role custom orthotics play in addressing biomechanical imbalances and weaknesses, and the value of using digital scanning instead of casting kits.
- Report of Findings. We will review the art of interpreting tests correctly and effectively communicating this information to the patient for maximum acceptance of care and clinical competency.
- Becoming Your Local High School’s Sports Dr. Chiropractors have had an incredibly difficult time working with their local middle and high schools. Much has to do with the dominance of the medical profession in combination with not having a clear job description to offer to the school district. We will review the clinical tools needed to become attractive, what role the chiropractor would play, and how to select the best school possible.
