MASTERING THE EXTREMITIES AND SPINE THE WONG WAY This course is designed to teach Chiropractors evaluation and adjusting techniques for all regions of the spine and extremities. Discussion of anatomy, common clinical conditions, and discernIble patterns of subluxation in all body regions spans the 12 hours. Starting at the feet, the class works its’ way up through the lower extremity, the pelvis, the spine, shoulders, ribs, upper extremity, neck, and jaw. The importance of the feet for whole-body stability is one of the core concepts of the class. When the arches of the feet have problems being too flat or too high, the body undergoes stress patterns, and a multitude of clinical ailments throughout the body may result. This class teaches the student how to analyze the patient, look for subluxation patterns, treat them and help their patients with home and lifestyle care. It involves hands-on examination/evaluation, modeling adjusting techniques, usage of physiotherapy modalities (i.e. cold laser, etc.), elastic taping protocols, and exercise procedures for all appropriate regions of the body. We also cover usage and marketing of ancillary products (custom orthotics, pillows, etc.) that are helpful for our patients and our practice.
Beverly Harger, DC, DACBR, is a 1987 Magna Cum Laude graduate of Western States Chiropractic College (now UWS). She is currently the director of radiology at University of Western States with her primary responsibility being a consultant for chiropractic clinicians. She is an active member of the American College of Chiropractic Radiology and the American Chiropractic Board of Radiology. As an educator in chiropractic radiology with more than 30 years of teaching experience her programs are designed to emphasize what clinicians need to know for improved patient care and management.
In conjunction with a focused history and physical examination, imaging studies play an important role in accurate diagnosis and subsequent treatment of patients. Using a case-based approach this presentation will focus on frequently missed, overlooked, or misdiagnosed conditions of the spine and extremities. These conditions when not diagnosed early and managed appropriately may result in long-term pain and disability. Clinical cases will be used as a basis to explore when and what diagnostic imaging studies yield the most appropriate outcomes.
Lori Morgan is the founder of C.A.’s For Life and has worked as a Chiropractic Assistant Coach and Trainer since 2001. Before that time, she worked as a C.A. for 15 years in a multi-doctor high volume practice where she developed the skills and background needed to be a successful Coach.
Her goal as a Team Development Coach is to help every Chiropractic Assistant she mentors to become a true Chiropractic Advocate. She understands to do so your team must be trained in scripts, systems and procedures. They must understand and truly embrace Chiropractic Philosophy because with that understanding and confidence, they can truly help you to build the practice of your dreams.
During her six hour C.A. Breakout session, Lori Morgan has put together a training program for them that will address the systems and procedures for the office that are vital to practice growth. They will include WOW 1st and 2nd visit procedures, Power of the Appointment Book, solid recall systems and the keys to Patient Retention and Referrals. We will also walk through ‘What to Say When’ scenarios so your team is prepared for any curve ball thrown their way.
There will also be a team building workshop that will include role play and a mastermind session based on your CA’s individual needs.
I believe in the power of team, particularly the Chiropractic Assistant.
Unfortunately, many C.A.’s don’t realize their full potential. They also don’t have the full positive impact on their practice that they could, simply because they are untrained to do so. Bring your team and put them on the path to becoming true Chiropractic Advocates. Lori Morgan Team Development Coach and owner of Chiropractic Assistants for Life.
