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.

Course Goal: The goal of this course is to
understand the neurological components the connective tissue subcomponents of
spinal discs and spinal supportive structures and how they normally function
and react to trauma. In additon, the role of the central and peripheral nervous
systems in spinal biomechanical engineering compensatory models
