In order to stay competitive, the post pandemic marketplace will require providers to expand their current skill sets. Providers must be able understand, modify, and synthesize training programming in order to stay competitive in a hyper-saturated and competitive marketplace. If providers are going to claim movement expertise, they must be ready to lead and teach general physical preparedness and movement across age and task cohorts. This experiential learning-based seminar will help you to synthesize and integrate the incredible training and movement choices in the provider’s tool bag into a simplified, more integrated whole. ​We are now tasked with limiting movement compensation within our classes so that we can limit overuse conditions, restore native physiologic ability, and unlock personal movement potential.

When the Adjustment Always Works, But the Patient Doesn’t
Main Stage (Standard Process Activity Center)

In most cases, when we deliver adjustments, we feel the joint move and hear the sound, which signals to us that the adjustment was successful. In most cases, patients feel better afterwards. But some don’t feel better and never do. Why is that? Most of these patients are either acutely or chronically inflamed to a degree that prevents manipulation success. This class will address the correctable underlying healthy risk factors that create an excessive pro-inflammatory state within joints, tendons, and spinal discs.

It will detail how the mechanical linkages involve the entire body, and joint mobility is essential in the entire process. It will also describe how foot dysfunction (functional hallux limitus) can alter the mechanics is such a way as to stress the entire system from the bottom to the top (lumbar and cervical spine). In the second hour, specifics will be provided in the conservative management of hallux limitus/rigidus including the use of specifically modified foot orthotics as well as lower extremity manipulations. The neuromechanical effects of muscular inhibition will be described as creating an environment which serves to perpetuate symptoms. Joint manipulations of the ankle, cuboid and 1st ray will be detailed. Upon completion, attendees should understand how gait mechanics perpetuate chronic foot and postural symptoms and have the tools to manage this long term.

Impulse Control: Making Your Brain Work for You
Main Stage (Standard Process Activity Center)

Can we learn to control our impulses before they control us? Even more importantly: can we learn to let them flow when it really matters? Countless years of life are lost and countless chances at happiness are missed because of our unhealthy relationship with impulses, which we tend to control too little (e.g., addiction and explosive anger) or too much (e.g., repression and anxiety). Understanding the underlying mechanisms of impulse control can give you the potential to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilled life. Neuroscientist Dr. Heather Berlin and her colleagues have been illuminating these mechanisms for years, including the surprising positive effects of losing control at the right time and in the right place. Some domains of human experience, such as meditation, improvisation, and therapy under certain psychoactive drugs, offer controlled circumstances under which losing control provides overwhelming and repeatable benefits to human well-being. By understanding these dynamics that are already at play in you, you can master the fine art of losing control and gaining it back, learn to adjust your impulse control settings at will, and make your brain work for you.
