Optimize Your Adjusting Biomechanics & Adjust Like an Athlete
North Building, Room 201

This two-hour in-person course will discuss how biomechanical principles of the patient and doctor can be optimized for adjusting the efficiency of the chiropractor. New technology allows the objective measurement of force production and speed of a High-Velocity Low-Amplitude (HVLA) impulse. Combining this technology with human biomechanics provides opportunities to revisit a chiropractor’s approach to adjusting. The principles discussed will provide any chiropractor with applicable tools to harness their own power when delivering an adjustment.

Empathy is Not Enough: Mastering Patient Communication
South Building, Rooms 102 & 103

Providers must be masters of 3 disciplines: Accurate Diagnosis, Targeted Treatment, and Skilled Communicaton. Unfortunately, communication is often the area of concern for many providers. This can be seen when patients don’t complete their treatment plans, don’t perform their home exercises, and drop off from the schedule. The good news is that great communicators are made, not born. Using our 5-part framework, any provider (and staff member) can become a skilled communicator. This will ensure that patients are more truthful in their histories, they complete their care plans and even refer their friends because of the trust that is built up.
