Spinal Correction & Rehabilitation Seminar

The CLEAR Scoliosis Institute is recognized worldwide for its successes in managing complex cases of scoliosis.  It is the goal of CLEAR to serve and support the chiropractic profession, and to help all Doctors of Chiropractic become THE spinal experts.  The purpose of this course is to present objective methods of measuring spinal misalignments, as well as effective methods of correcting them.  This course is intended to help you with ALL your patients – not just the ones with scoliosis.  If you want to be a Spinal Expert and provide your patients with the best possible care, this is the information that you need to know!

This class will include:

  • The History of Spinal Rehabilitation – BJ Palmer established the first “corrective care” chiropractic clinic, incorporating rehab & exercises with adjustments, back in 1938!
  • Spinal Biomechanics – understanding the kinematic function of the spine will provide you with deeper insight into how and why spinal misalignments develop, and how to rehabilitate them
  • Digital Motion X-ray (DMX) – this technology allows us to visualize the spine in real-time, and evaluate adjustments, exercises, and other therapies to ensure they are effective
  • CLEAR X-ray Analysis – based upon over 50 years of work in chiropractic x-ray analysis, this system will help you to identify the subluxations you are missing in your patients
  • Advanced Precision Full-spine Adjusting – learn how to apply the information from the x-rays to consistently achieve superior results in even the most difficult cases
  • Specific Spinal Isometric Exercises – we present the most effective exercises for postural correction, as well as the science and research behind sensorimotor re-integration strategies
  • Spinal Rehabilitation Tools – discover new technologies and therapies that help you to achieve corrections quicker, and ensure that the correction lasts longer!

Location: TBD

Dates: TBD

Continuing Education Credits: CE Credits will be available.  Contact care@clear-institute.org for more information!
