This 10-hour course covers how to understand the advanced neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and neurodiagnostic testing. The electromyogram/nerve conduction velocity (EMG/NCV) course has been engineered to allow the doctor to understand the clinical necessity for electrodiagnostic testing, how testing is performed, how to interpret the results based upon the report rendered by a specialist in electrodiagnostics, how to document the results and how to integrate that diagnoses or conclusion into the doctor’s overall treatment plan.

Part 1: Anatomy and Physiology of Electrodiagnostics:.  This section is an in-depth review of basic neuro-anatomy and physiology dermatomes and myotomes to both the upper and lower extremities. It covers the neurophysiology of axons and dendrites along with the myelin and function of saltatory for conduction. This section goes into depth into explaining the sodium and potassium pump’s function in action potentials.

Part 2: Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Part 1: This section discusses nerve conduction velocity testing, the equipment required and the specifics of motor and sensory testing. This section covers the motor and sensory NCV procedures and interpretation including latency, amplitude (CMAP) physiology and interpretation including the understanding of the various nuances of the wave forms.

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.

The candidate must publish an original "case report" where extremity MRI has impacted either a diagnosis, prognosis or treatment plan in clinical practice. This paper must include images, appropriate references and will be peer-reviewed by a panel of peers for acceptance. The Academy of Chiropractic will be responsible for having the paper published. The candidate must author the article and utilize the following guideline:

Case reports present the details of real patient cases from medical or clinical practice. Cases may contribute significantly to the existing knowledge on the field or showcase fewer novel results. The report is expected to discuss the signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of a disease. A goal of case reports is to make other researchers aware of the possibility that a specific phenomenon might occur.

Case reports are limited to 20 references and contain the following sections: abstract, introduction, case presentation, discussion, conclusions, references.

Mark Studin DC, FASBE(C), DAAMLP, DAAPM: Current healthcare trends and the state of chiropractic in the COVID-19 era. Lawyers continue to need answers to carriers' lower settlements during the pandemic, and you will learn how to be their solution. ER's and Urgent Care Centers are to capacity testing and treating. They need a solution for spinal issues, and you will learn how to position your practice to be that solution that will last well-beyond COVID. Trends tell us where the marketplace has shifted, and we have created a business strategy to meet those needs.

Mark Studin DC, DAAMLP, DAAPM, FASBE(C), The latest nomenclature in MRI spine interpretation [lots of changes], and incorporating spinal biomechanics to create an accurate diagnosis and get paid. The reason medicine gets paid more than chiropractic is they have demonstrable diagnostics. We must institute protocols that WE ALREADY HAVE to confirm patho-neuro-biomechanical lesions [Subluxations] are present.  A "MASTER CLASS" in Strain-Sprain in fully understanding the permanency of this connective tissue disorder and how to certify long-term care with a demonstrable diagnosis.

This 3 hour course covers how to document the entire history and findings of a trauma case and ensures that both settlements(Colossus) and verdict items are covered through thorough documentation. The entire program is centered on the current teachings in academia and focuses on creating an accurate diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan. The carriers algorithms for "Colossus type" requirements are quite specific and when analyzed meet all of the academic requirements for thorough documentation. Those standards, inclusive of functional losses and ancillary care, support, gaps in care, etc... are all explained in detail. There are many areas where courtroom requirements conflict with carrier requirements, however if an academic standard is adhered to, both scenarios are ethically documented. 

Part 1:  Integration of "Colossus type" insurance algorithms and court documentation requirements with current academia standards. Protocols and documentation standards in ordering diagnostics and treatment regimens.                                           2 Hours

Part 2: Documenting functional losses, both duties under duress and loss of enjoyment of life and the 36 points utilized by the courts, "Colossus type" insurance algorithms and required by academia.                                                                                   1 Hour

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.
