Relevant Rehab: Low Tech Rehab for Common Postural Distortions
Active care is an integral component of the current treatment paradigm in Chiropractic. This course will address low tech, active care principles for the most common postural distortions seen in everyday practice. Anterior head carriage, lumbar spine and core imbalances, and pronation distortion will be covered in detail including exercise progressions for all phases of care. Knowing when and how to progress a patient through the active paradigm will be addressed to enable the clinician to easily apply the principles learned in the program quickly. The clinician will also learn lifestyle and nutritional interventions to augment the response to care.
