Foundations of Brain Based Chiropractic: Misperceptions and New Perceptions (Buerger, Mar 14-15, 2020)
Change the trajectory of life for your patients!
This course brings together, in a fun and easy to understand manner, the current neuroscience on developmental neuroplasticity and aging neuroplastic changes and chiropractic research to explain the current working theory of how chiropractic adjustments may help modulate internal and external environmental perception that the brain relies on for optimal human potential. It will also provide functional assessment procedures, chiropractic management and adjusting considerations across all age and stages.
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 theory behind how the chiropractic adjustment may affect brain function, and
- provide care plans based on the neurological integrity of the individual patient.
