Description

16 CE Credits

The Spinal Biomechanical Engineering course is engineered to help you understand the biomechanics, pathobiomechanics and bio-neuro-biomechanics of the spine. Simply stated, how the spine should function normally and what happens when aberrant forces are translated to the spine and the negative sequella pathologically. These pathological changes can be quantified, once understood and then part of a conclusive demonstrative diagnosis (visualized and verified in a reproducible posture), prognosis and treatment plan.

In addition, this course will help you analyze the vector of forces involved in trauma cases and the neurological component as a result. Each instructor has focused a good portion of their career in researching, teaching and practicing spinal biomechanics. This course is also credentialed by the State University of New York at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical sceinces, Texas Chiropractic College and is PACE  recognized by the Federation of Chiropractic Licensign Boards.
