This 10-hour course covers how to understand traumatic brain injury in concussion. When there is a head injury inclusive of direct trauma or coup-contrecoup type trauma the brain can sustain a myriad of injuries. The primary spine care provider must understand the signs and symptoms for early detection as this can have either pathological cognitive sequella or death at the most extreme. This course covers the clinical examination, advanced imaging and advanced neurodiagnostic testing to conclusively diagnose traumatic brain injuries and any necessary triage. Also, this program emphasizes the urgency of triage pending a clinical evaluation.

Part 1: Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion Overview:.  This section is an in-depth overview of traumatic brain injury in concussion. It discusses that all brain injuries are traumatic and dispels the myth of a “mild traumatic brain injury.” Also, this covers triage protocols and the potential sequela of patients with traumatic brain injuries.

Part 2: Head Trauma and Traumatic Brain Injury Part 1: This section discusses gross traumatic brain injuries from trauma and significant bleeding with both epidural and subdural hematomas. There are numerous case studies reviewed inclusive of neurosurgical intervention and postsurgical outcomes.

Part 3: Head Trauma and Traumatic Brain Injury Part 2: This section continues with multiple case studies of gross traumatic brain injuries from trauma requiring neurosurgical intervention and also discusses recovery sequela based upon the significance of brain trauma. This module also concludes with concussion protocols in traumatic brain injury short of demonstrable bleeding on advanced imaging.

Part 4: Concussion And Electroencephalogram Testing: This this section covers concussion etiology and cognitive sequela where gross bleeding has not been identified on advanced imaging. It discusses the significance of electroencephalogram testing in determining brain function and pathology (if present). This module also covers the understanding of waveforms in electroencephalogram testing in both normal and abnormal scenarios.

Part 5: Concussion And Electroencephalogram Testing Pathological Results: This module covers amplitude, conduction and conduction delays as sequela to traumatic brain injury to diagnose concussion and traumatic brain injury in the absence of gross bleeding and advanced imaging. This section covers electroencephalograms and event-related potentials which measures the brain response that is a direct result of specific sensory or motor events. It is a stereotype electrophysiological response to a stimulus and provides a noninvasive means of evaluating brain function. In this module multiple case studies are discussed with ensuing triage protocols pending the results.

Spinal Disc and Ligaments Neurology and Pathology

7 CE Credits

*CE Credits are issued for Doctors of Chiropractic only.

*Please note this course is not approved in the state of FL.

*Please note this course is only approved for 5 CE credits in the state of NH.

The neurology of ligament pathology is an inclusive course covering ligaments and spinal disc (also ligaments). As discs are integral in spinal biomechanics, we discuss the role that a herniated or bulged disc plays in aberrant biomechanics and when the patient can undergo corrective care vs. management of care. The course also explains why long-termed chiropractic care is clinically indicated. 

This course details the roles of mechanoreceptors, proprioceptors and nociceptors in a pathological spine and one that is undergoing compensation as sequellae to trauma and tissue pathology. This course prepares you to be expert on spinal pathology and the mechanisms of compensation in addition to the why a patient “might” need lifetime care, no different than the diabetic, who needs lifetime care. In addition, this course will prepare you for patients who have “shifting pain” as a natural course of compensation.

The Testifying course covers how to set up the "4-corners" of your patient documentation for a medical-legal setting based upon an accurate history and physical examination and then how to ensure it is documented accurately. It then goes to the next step in showing you how to articulate and if necessary, defend your records in direct-examination, cross-examination and re-direct examinations. This program covers every aspect of the legal process in becoming an expert, inclusive of what is required to be considered an expert at this level. 

Although doctors have to follow the tenents of our licenses, we are also compelled by the legal system to function according to the rules of the courts, which are not inherent within the training of doctors and this course will prepare you to succeed in that system. In addition, the course will prepare you to triage your patients based upon clinical necessity and secure the documentation from other providers to conclude and accurate diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan.

The AMA Guide to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 6th Edition has created a whole new paradigm in determining Whole Person Impairments (WPI). The criteria have changed as it is no longer allowable to utilize ranges of motion as criteria for impairment ratings.

This certification course covers all of the criteria needed along with the clinical rationale and training to understand the basics of the physiology and clinical interpretation required. The course also covers spine and neurological issues that are often seen in patients requiring impairment ratings for issues that transcend spine, which occur in the majority of spinal trauma cases.

This is a credentialing course where after completion you will be able to obtain a certificate of completion suitable for framing and displaying in your office. It is a 2 hour course. Where accepted nationally for online courses, this course offers 2 chiropractic continuing education credits certified by the New York State Department of Education.
