Balancing the Two Brains: The Gut-Brain-Sensory Axis for Chiropractors (Buerger, Jun 29-30, 2019)
Balancing the Two Brains: Mastering the Chiropractic-Gut-Immune-Sensory Axis across All Ages and Stages
Learn how to heal the Gut-Brain Axis and change the trajectory of life for your patients!
Recent years of research has shown us that there is a connection between the gut and the brain. This bi-directional axis is the core of our physical and mental health. Dr. Buerger will cover, in depth, the connection between the gut, the brain and the immune system from a neurophysiological standpoint. She will present up-to-date research on how trauma (emotional and/or physical), concussions and whiplash injuries can alter the gut-brain-immune axis and the potential health implications that may result. Dr. Buerger will address the biomechanical aspects related to gut-brain disruption that are pertinent to the chiropractic profession, and adjustments/techniques that chiropractors can employ. Specific “gut rehab” protocols and neurointegrative rehab exercises and protocols will be covered so you can start changing lives Monday morning!
This course is packed full of critical information that can change the lives of patients across all ages!
By the end of the seminar, participants will be better able to:
- Understand the neurophysiological affects related to biomechanical spinal dysfunction that are related to the gut-brain axis
- Have a firm grasp on appropriate “gut rehab” protocols essential for healing post trauma
- Have a firm understanding of neurointegrative rehabilitation techniques/exercises essential for healing and holding proper spinal patterns post trauma
