Introduction To ReceptorBased® Essentials

University of Western States Neurology Club Fundraiser
September 11, 2021

This 8-hour workshop has been designed to introduce you to the concept of ReceptorBased® analysis, provide you with basic clinical assessments and tools that you can use your practice immediately, then introduce you to the concept of ReceptorBased® therapies. By the end of the course, you will have at least 12 new neurological assessments to add to your toolbox, and a strategy to improve your patient’s or client’s neurological integrity. This one day introductory course is the perfect way for you to either decide if RBE and clinical neuroscience is right for you, your practice, or introduce a colleague to Clinical Neuroscience. Are you intrigued with brain rehabilitation but not sure if you want to dive into a course of education? We have the solution for you. The solution is our 1-day Introduction to ReceptorBased® Essentials. 

Learn More About ReceptorBased® Essentials​

What is ReceptorBased® Essentials?

ReceptorBased® Essentials (RBE) was created for practitioners wanting a fast and effective way to learn and implement the fundamentals of Clinical Neuroscience into their practices. It is the only 4-day live program with an online component that includes hands on evidence-based, clinically proven training.

The Importance of Understanding Sensory Receptors

Correcting the central processing of sensory receptors contributes to the efficacy of many manual therapies. Understanding how these receptor systems work together to affect function will allow you to effectively implement Clinical Neuroscience into your practice.

What is Clinical Neuroscience?

Clinical Neuroscience is a branch of neuroscience that focuses on the scientific study of fundamental mechanisms that underlie diseases and disorders of the brain and central nervous system. It seeks to develop new ways of conceptualizing and diagnosing such disorders and developing novel applications to treat them.

Brain Dysfunction in Clinical Neuroscience

Brain dysfunction often contributes to human suffering and suboptimal performance. A ReceptorBased® approach provides more effective treatments that deliver better patient outcomes. Not all sensory input is beneficial in treating neurological dysfunction. ReceptorBased® Essentials teaches you assessment strategies that allows you to select an optimal intervention. By better understanding how your therapies achieve their results, you will better serve your patient/client population.

Why The Carrick Institute?

The Carrick Institute has a 40-year history of providing evidence based clinical education in the field of neuroscience and neurology. We specialize in translating complex information often found in neuroscience and neurology into an easily understandable format. This allows for accelerated learning and the development of novel applications that may be applied in a wide range of circumstances spanning the healthcare and athletic performance fields. Our dedication to making all that we teach as simple and practical as possible promotes lifelong learning and inspires our global alumni to continue developing new and exciting clinical applications.

Thus, those who have a desire to learn from leaders in the field and become part of a community that focuses on support and encouragement will find a home at Carrick Institute. We invite you to join our team and learn with us.

What Sets ReceptorBased® Essentials Apart From Other Programs?

One of the many elements that set ReceptorBased® Essentials apart from any other program is the methodology utilized in its creation. Many courses are created using information from textbooks and other courses.

We started the development ReceptorBased® Essentials by doing a job analysis on some of the most successful practitioners utilizing Clinical Neuroscience in their practices.

The results allowed us to identify the three essential foundations of the program:

  1. The type of patient’s Clinical Neuroscience practitioners can help.
  2. The most-common, relevant, and practical clinical tools, assessments, and applications utilized in successful practices.
  3. The academic concepts that these doctors felt contributed most to their success with their patients.

This knowledge enabled us to establish the most commonly used applications that we needed to teach. We then performed a literature search for information on these applications. We collected and constructed a library of evidence with thousands of peer-research papers supporting nearly every concept and procedure taught in this program.

    9. To apply the 10 Principles of Neuroplasticity.
    10. The patient care cycle of a ReceptorBased® Treatment from marketing, education, assessment tools, care plans, and referral generation.

What Our Doctors & Students Are Saying

The RBE Program from the Carrick Institute is a great Entry to the World of Functional Neurology. The Instructors Dr. Antonouci and Dr. Klotzek did an exceptional work on Petting the Material together and to instruct it. Both are awesome and do not let any question unanswered. Highly Recommended!
Complete RBE course has been the one the best thing I have done so far as a student, I wish that way of presenting such a complex subject with so much passion and dedication stays with me forever!!
The Receptor Based Essentials Program is a current, breakthrough and game changing program for any practioner searching for that clinical advantage! Highly recommended it for beginners like myself.
