PATHOBIOMECHANICS AND DOCUMENTATION
8 Credit Hours
*CE Credits are for Doctors of Chiropractic.
**CME Credits are for Medical Doctors and Doctors of Chiropractic
***This course is only approved for 5 CE in New Hampshire.
This program is focused on pathobiomechanics and how to demonstratively show pathobiomechanics. It
covers how to diagnose and document spinal pathobiomechanical lesion. It also covers
the use of pathobiomechanics to explain patterns and prognosticating
premature degeneration based upon Wolff’s Law. This program also explains the
demonstrative necessity for long-termed chiropractic care and how to identify
primary lesions of the spine vs. treating compensation.
- Documenting an Initial E&M Report:
Review of CPT Coding Guidelines for Initial and
Established Patients with particular attention paid to Patient History, Review
of Systems, Social and Family History, Physical Examination and Medical
Decision making. Specific differences in
coding levels and required elements for a 99202-99203-99204-99205 will be
outlined and demonstrated.
- Using Documentation to Create Ethical Relationships:
Pathways to improve coordination of care and
interprofessional communication with collaborating physicians will be outlined
and demonstrated. Discussion will focus on maintaining ethical relationships in
the medical-legal community through compliant reporting and communication of
demonstrable patient/client diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plans.
- Spinal Biomechanical Engineering
A brief history of clinical biomechanics will be
discussed with an emphasis on the diagnosis and management of spine
pain of mechanical/functional origin.
Evidence based symptomatic vs asymptomatic parameters will be reviewed
using peer-reviewed medically index literature.
Detailed analysis using computerized mensuration programs to analyze spinal
biomechanical pathology will be demonstrated and discussed. Outlines of the comparison of demonstrable
spinal biomechanical failure on imaging to a clinical evaluation and physical examination will be presented. Future
implications of clinical biomechanics in the management of the spine pain
patient will be reviewed
Module 4 - Clinical Grand Rounds
Case reviews utilizing E/M, MRI and x-ray mensuration
reports to conclude an accurate diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan will be
presented. Focus will be on common diagnosis require interprofessional
collaboration with a discussion of diagnostic dilemmas and proper communication
methods. Interprofessional communication
methods will include clinical documentation, triage, referral protocols and
