Clinical Examination and Treatment of Muscle Dysfunction plus Recordkeeping, Coding, and Compliance
Live 12 hour CEU Course
Not all muscle conditions are alike and may require specific diagnostic procedures to determine the most efficient and appropriate treatment to correct the dysfunction. If left untreated, gait, postural, and biomechanical issues will arise causing subluxations, pain, decreased range of motion, ligamentous injury and more. These simple techniques will give you the confidence to identify your patient's muscle condition and how to apply the correct treatment. Plus you will learn Recordkeeping, Coding, and Compliance with Dr. Marty Kotlar of Target Coding.  This is the most up to date information for today's Chiropractor in order to build, support, and maintain a succesful Chiropractic practice!

What You Will Learn:
• The use of posture and gait to determine possible areas of muscle dysfunction.
• The science and art of muscle testing to differentiate between the myriad of muscle conditions
• How to properly muscle test the upper and lower extremities.
• Facilitating and inhibiting muscles using muscle proprioceptor techniques
• Muscle Stretch Reaction Technique and how to differentiate between trigger points, fascial adhesion, and myofascial gelosis.
• Strain / Counterstrain: Disorganization between muscles, their proprioceptors, and the nervous system as a result of improper afferent stimulation.
• Reactive Muscles Pairs: How contraction of a muscle can cause weakness in another previously strong muscle. Determine if the muscle pair are antagonistic, gait related, or muscle interlinks.
• Recordkeeping, Coding and Complaince with Dr. Marty Kotlar

Putting it all together: How to simply incorporate these different muscle techniques into a quick and easy evaluation, diagnosis and treatment and the proper recordkeeping, coding and complaince for your practice.

IASTM:  Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization 2.0- Live 12 hour CEU Course
This is similar to our last IASTM seminar offered in 2014 only on STEROIDS!  Soft tissue pathology plays a primary role in limiting mobility often resulting in a profound loss of function.  The strength of tissue adhesions along with fascial contraction creates stress on spinal and extremity joints making joint mobilization difficult.  Removing these soft tissue restrictions using IASTM creates a more effective and lasting Chiropractic treatment.  This lab intensive CEU course covers theory and intervention strategies for identifying and treating soft tissue restrictions using Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) which is one of the fastest growing soft tissue mobilization techniques!  Attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion as well as access to our tutorial website to brush up on all IASTM techniques as well as a listing on our Doctor's website which patients will have access to in order to find IASTM certified practitioners.  Because of the Lab oriented nature of this seminar seating is limited. 

 Why America Is So Sick Today: Understanding Brain Development, Neuroplasticity, and the Chiropractor's Role - 12 hour live course

The Chiropractor will also learn how to treat these low back conditions using spinal and extremity adjusting, soft tissue release, grooving movement patterns, through stretching, strengthening, and stabilization as well as flexion distraction and decompression techniques.

Functional and Neurological Diagnosis and Treatment of Whiplash - Live Course 12 CEU
