Professor: Dr. Adam Harcourt
This seminar is a perfect way to learn new techniques to treat muscle imbalances that are so commonly found in chiropractic practice.
Understanding how the brain controls and influences movement will give you a superior advantage in treating pain syndromes that are secondary to impaired movement patterns. From the simple presence of a functional short leg to a complex presentation of scoliosis. All are influenced by the brains inability to properly regulate movement.
This course will definitely improve your clinical skills in diagnosing and treating muscle imbalances in humankind yielding superior results in your patient base!!
One of the most important functions of the brain and human nervous system is to create and control movement. In fact, movement is the only way that we can affect the environment around us. Discover in this seminar how the brain has evolved over the ages to produce and control movement of the human form. Learn how the centers that control movement are dependent upon the sensory inputs produced by gravitational based tissue distortions.
You will learn about brain-based and cerebellar based movement dysfunctions. You will learn how to recognize them and more importantly how to treat them. The regulation of various reflexogenic movement patterns is critical to human function ranging from the ongoing depression of primitive reflexes and the appearance of frontal release signs.
Learn how to identify the presence of these abnormal motor reflexes and how they contribute to neck and low back pain. More importantly, learn how to easily treat these with specific adjustments and therapeutic exercises.
The course is designed to offer learners an application based learning style that focuses on case scenarios to highlight the importance of the relevant discussion at hand.
Function of the basal ganglia, cerebral cortex, cerebellum, and brain-stem will be discussed in relation to the human motor system and how they influence all movements in humankind.
Applications specific to the diagnosis and treatment of all these motor centers will be discussed in detail.
If you have patients who have chronic muscle imbalances that you just can’t fix then this course is for you.
