Trends in Spine Management inclusive of spinal biomechanical engineering
models and demonstrative modeling of pathobiomechanics. This course allows you
to understand collaborative models with patient care and gives you the tools to
determine the necessity of a co-treating medical specialist. This course
clearly outlines how to document the necessity for long-term chiropractic care
demonstratively and how inclusive E&M reporting will foster strong ethical
relationships with the medical-legal community.

Chiropractic Trends –
Documentation, professional collaboration and the credentials/knowledge-based
required to ensure compliance and be considered a peer in spine care
Module 2: 1.5 Hour
MRI Spine Interpretation.
Updated evidenced-based nomenclature changes in diagnosing and reporting disc
bulges from trauma and how that affects spinal diagnosis in traumatically
induced pathology. Triage of patients based upon pathology and updating current
standards in ordering MRI's as well as the correct triage based on the
pathology diagnosed. Age-dating herniated discs based upon the literature and
the aberrant biomechanics that occur as sequella.
3: 1.5 Hour
Evidenced-Based Treatment Protocols: Utilizing evidenced-based updated literature
in the medical-legal environment while maintaining ethical relationships in
determining causality, bodily injury and persistent functional loss when
clinically applicable as evidenced demonstrably.
4: 1 Hour
Management and Triage.
What tests to order and when to consider collaborating with medical specialists
based upon clinical and test results. An in-depth review of imaging and
neurodiagnostic testing as correlates to clinical findings. The following
modalities will be discussed: MRI, CAT, X-Ray, EMG/NCV, pf-NCS, SSEP, BAER,
V-ENG, VEP, Bone Scan. Application of diagnostic findings in contemporary

Demonstrative Spinal Biomechanics
– An evidenced-based approach to demonstratively documenting spinal
biomechanical engineering and identifying the primary lesions of the spine to
be treated vs. treating compensation. Creating treatment plans in a
patient-centerrd approach to case

model: An updated basis for Interprofessional care and the
foundation for chiropractic care to be delivered in a hospital system inclusive
of emergency rooms and appropriate care paths. This protocol is based upon
connective tissue disorders and the neurological connection between spine,
ligament and the central nervous system based upon the literature and
chiropractic and medical academia.

Total Education Time: 12 Hours
To learn how to utilize the research in positioning the chiropractor as an
expert based upon outcomes.
teach the doctors how to utilize research and outcome studies in positioning
themselves in the medical community to create peer-peer relationships when
building a collaborative medical team to triage as clinically indicated.
