The changing healthcare market is re-defining success into one word: Outcomes. Chiropractors will need to be equipped with current “best practices” in order to achieve the best clinical outcomes. In the past 5 years Dr. Bertelsman has been part of a small team that has synthesized more than 5000 journals and texts into evidence-based synopses for the most common sports-based musculoskeletal conditions. This class teaches real world “best practices” to use on Monday morning- thereby improving clinical outcomes as well as the health of our profession.
Part 1: Shoulder
Rotator cuff injuries account for 4.5 million physician office visits per year. Management of this problem can range from frustrating to rewarding depending on the depth of your training. This practical workshop will outline everything you need to know about successfully treating rotator cuff pathology. This hands-on workshop will review the current “best practices” for evaluation, treatment and home rehab. You’ll leave this class with greater understanding and confidence about how to manage the most common problems to affect the shoulder.
Part 2: Lumbar Spine
This practical presentation will review the current standard of care, including the most clinically relevant assessments and treatments for the conditions responsible for LBP. Dr Bertelsman will show you how to choose treatment based upon a specific diagnosis and classification to improve your outcomes dramatically. You will leave this class with practical, evidence-based skills for managing the “Continuum of Low Back Pain”.
