Chiropractic Perspectives on Common Infant Concerns (O'Neill Bhogal, online 2023)
This 4-hour presentation is designed to help practitioners recognize and care for common infant presentations associated with prenatal and perinatal factors. Birth trauma, altered head shape, torticollis, and other infant concerns will be explored. Clinical evaluation and management will be reviewed with an emphasis on recognizing cases that may require co-management with other specialists. Common subluxation patterns will be discussed. Attendees will gain confidence in their ability to identify and better care for infant patients with these clinical diagnoses.
This course is available through December 31. Download or print your certificate before that date.
