It is now recognized how important the nervous system is in controlling all aspects of health and performance. The clinician who is able to create an individualized neurophysiological approach for their patients will become the healthcare provider of the future.

With this groundbreaking education, the CNS program will develop clinicians that do not separate neurology from their everyday applications because of its complexity but aims to teach neuroscience in such a way to allow clinicians and scholars to embrace and integrate the concepts into what they do in their everyday practice.  [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Explore the Breadth, Depth and Application of Clinical Neuroscience” google_fonts=”font_family:Lato%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]The clinical neuroscience program (CNS) is a comprehensive, evidence-based series of modules which come together to teach the breadth, depth, and application of clinical neuroscience.

What is Breadth? Throughout the CNS program, scholars will be taught on subject material that is common to all healthcare professionals and needed for the diagnosis and recognition of neurological dysfunction. This includes the neuroanatomy, the physiology and the pathology of the nervous system and related systems.

What is Depth?: Building upon the breadth of neuroscience, depth allows us to differentially diagnose and recognize various conditions and pathologies from their similar counterparts. The goal is to allow for increased accuracy in recognition, diagnosis, and understanding of neurological conditions that are otherwise misunderstood or undiagnosed.

What is Application?: This course goes beyond diagnostic strategies and knowing when to refer out. The CNS program dives deep into the functional neurorehabilitation strategies and information that is specific to the practitioner when applying a functional neurology paradigm of care.

Once the clinician has breadth, they can do a deep dive into its understanding which gives the scholar depth. Breadth and depth allows the clinician to have specificity in the application of clinical neuroscience for improved patient outcomes.

“Six years into practice, and I still felt like there were so many unanswered questions about why I could help some patients more than others, why chiropractic would “work” for them and not for others. After going through my first five modules, and with a lot of support from Dr. Garcia, I am seeing more clearly how I can more regularly produce the “miracle” patients reliably, instead of popping and praying. Well worth the shock of going back to school!”

“What an amazing program. This program filled in all the missing questions I had about what techniques to use and how to use them, when to use them and much more. I am so much better of a chiropractor thanks to this program. I am helping more people with the knowledge I have gained and clinical skills and getting more referrals for not just other health care providers but chiropractors as well. L. O. V. E. this program”
