Toddler Adjusting for the Practicing Chiropractor (Mulhall-Wright, Dec. 8)
This seminar addresses chiropractic for toddlers through three years old. Whether you are a recent graduate needing more exposure to pediatric in order to begin, or you are an experienced pediatric chiropractor looking to reinforce skills and learn something new, this seminar is for you. You will have the opportunity to practice (on dolls, not on live toddlers) and discuss what you are learning. Make toddlers part of your practice with confidence, with Dr. Geraldine Mulhall-Wright, DC.

- know when a child is ready to transition from meningeal nervous system adjustments to a stronger, more manual adjustment.
