Dr. Rob Silverman Fall 2022 Seminar October 29, 2022

October 29, 2022

$299.00 – $399.00


In this new and incisive 8-hour presentation, Dr. Robert Silverman, the doctor’s chiropractic doctor and laser therapy expert leads you through the latest developments in a comprehensive approach to treatment. You’ll learn the value of laser therapy as a stand-alone modality or a synergistic treatment that fits perfectly into your armamentarium. Dr. Silverman presents integrative approaches to performance nutrition, essential supplementation, improving immune function, functional assessments, current options for blood testing, and other new protocols that will help you attain superior clinical outcomes.

This seminar explores the bidirectional gut-brain axis. You’ll learn practical applications for patients with concussion, Alzheimer’s disease, SIBO, Lyme disease, and the newly emerging clinical problem of long COVID.

Join Dr. Silverman in this illuminating seminar and gain insight into a comprehensive methodology that incorporates proven protocols into a clinically integrated system—one you can apply to your practice immediately.

Key clinical takeaways:

  • Test, Don’t Guess: expertly assess intestinal and blood-brain dysfunctions, inclusive of advanced diagnostic laboratory testing and blood chemistry analysis
  • Understand the effect of gut bacterial toxins on the gut-brain axis in neurological disorder pathogenesis, with a focus on SIBO
  • Strategies to initiate the positive impact of gut health on the musculoskeletal system
  • Traumatic brain injuries & neurodegenerative diseases: assessment & intervention
  • Diminished brain resilience syndrome: toxins, diet, lifestyle
  • Apply neurodynamic tests and corrective laser protocols
  • Demonstrations of laser applications and case studies

Laser introduction – the evolution of laser and its modern usage

  • How it works
  • Long term effects
  • Effects on pain relief
  • A detailed description of the laser’s ability to attenuate M/S injuries
  • How it can influence both central and peripheral nervous systems

Laser research and its clinical applications

  • Basic anatomy and function of vagus nerve
  • Vagus nerve’s effects on reduction of inflammation
  • Vagus nerve’s role in bi-directional communication between the gut/brain axis
  • Phrenic nerve – its effect on the diaphragm
  • Supporting medical necessity with FDA market clearance research

  Clinical breakthroughs in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries (hands-on laser demo):

  • Ankle sprain
  • Rotator cuff injuries/shoulder impingement
  • Plantar fasciitis (Baxter’s neuropathy)
  • Golfer’s/tennis elbow
  • Lumbar disc degeneration/sciatica
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Shin splints
  • Hip injuries/labrum
  • Knee injuries
  • Headaches

Anatomy biomechanics of the joint differential diagnosis. Review of causes of injury, ortho/neuro tests, injury treatments, protocols including laser, exercise, rehab, nutrition, taping. Patient case studies for each of the conditions will be reviewed.

 Dr. Rob’s Gut Matrix

The evolving field of gut health is one of the most exciting developments in Functional Nutrition. In this module, attendees will get a solid understanding of the gut microbiome and its importance:

  • New insights into how our microbial community affects health and disease.
  • Nutritional strategies for gut health (7R Program).
  • Gut reaction: restoring digestive health through nutrition.

Strategies to initiate the positive impact of gut health on the musculoskeletal system:

  • Basic physiology and nutritional support for a musculoskeletal injury
  • Medicine’s new direction—how injuries to fascia and extracellular matrix are critical components in describing disease etiology

SIBO – Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth

  • Signs and symptoms
  • Nutritional protocols for 3 Phases of Care for SIBO
  • Dietary recommendations
  • Factors that protect against SIBO
  • SIBO prevalence in TBI patients

 Blood chemistry

Blood chemistry is an effective diagnostic tool to screen for and identify metabolic imbalances. It is also valuable for evaluating how well changes based on Functional Nutrition are working. This section will discuss the functional medicine interpretation of the following blood panels:

  • CBC
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Serum electrolytes
  • Liver markers
  • Blood sugar/insulin markers
  • Lipid and CVD markers
    • LDLR receptor
    • Cholesterol particle size
    • Remnant particles
    • Oxidized LDL particles
    • LPa
    • MPO
  • Genetic/genomic markers

Cardiometabolic Disorders: Untangling Complex Conditions

Prediabetes, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease are inextricably connected. To effectively treat these complex conditions, we need to look at the root causes and examine pathology that often begins early in life.

  • Genetic inheritance
  • Dietary Influences
  • Environment
  • Dietary Changes
  • Physical Activity
  • Lifestyle Therapy
  • Detoxification

Case studies/lab reviews

Hands-on and laser workshop (includes a 10-page, take-home algorithm) Algorithms using laser therapy and its application during the correlated stages of healing

  • Acute-phase
  • Sub-acute phase
    • Repair & remodeling
  • Chronic
  • Wellness
  • Prevention
  • Up-regulation of the peripheral nervous system
  • Symptoms, treatment objectives, frequency, and timing of application
  • Case studies

Neurodynamic tests – assessing the sensitivity of the whole nervous system and practical breakdown of each nerve with laser protocols to turn the individual nervous and/or nervous system.

  • Assess and treat:
  • Brachial plexus
  • Median nerve
  • Ulnar nerve
  • Radial nerve
  • Sciatica nerve
  • Tibial nerve
  • Lateral plantar nerve
  • Recurrent median nerve
  • Axial nerve
  • Femoral nerve
  • Inferior gluteal nerve
  • Inferior calcaneal nerve
  • Lumbosacral plexus
  • Dural sheath

Nerve-flossing exercises – demonstration of exercise that plays an integral role in neurological recovery

Traumatic Brain Injuries/Concussions/Brain Health

Traumatic brain injuries – Concussions

Traumatic brain injuries are on the rise:

  • A Research review on treatments for TBI
  • Concussion assessments and protocols

Why More Concussions

Diminished brain resilience syndrome:

  • Toxins
  • Poor dietary fats
  • Poor liver function and gut bacteria

How to Assess a Concussion

  • What’s a concussion?
  • 3-grade system
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Balance assessment:
    • A clinical test of sensory integration of balance

Hands-on demonstration of rehab and cognitive assessments/treatment for concussion injuries/laser protocols

 Nutritional Protocol for Treating Concussion

  • Feed your concussion: Reviewing nutrition and its role in brain recovery
