Advanced Chiropractic Techniques

March 4, 2023 - Atlanta, GA

This is a special module that is presented by Prof Frederick R Carrick.  He has developed manipulative/adjusting techniques over the last 4 decades that are utilized by clinicians throughout the world.

What is Advanced Chiropractic Techniques?

Prof. Carrick is a master of joint manipulations and adjustments. You will learn the modern and novel techniques he uses that has gained him worldwide recognition from patients and athletes from around the globe. More importantly, he will teach you how and when to use each technique based on their physical AND neurological examination, which is a missing key to the success of your adjustments.

Who is this class for?

Our primary audience is the chiropractic clinician who performs adjustments or manipulation as part of their treatment plans.
Our program is a hands-on practical training module designed for clinicians that desire to master the joint manipulation/adjusting techniques of the spine and extremities. We have designed this program to promote maximum skill acquisition by our participants who will learn the techniques necessary to perform high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) manipulation/adjusting of the spine and extremities in a safe and competent fashion. Participants will be immersed in practical application learning scenarios based upon a neurological model of health care. 


*All attendees are required to be a Licensed Chiropractor or Chiropractic Student to attend this specialty module.

LEcture Format of Advanced Chiropractic Techniques

This program of study is central to the hands on adjusting of joints  without the use of instrumentation or anesthesia. Our program is designed to promote maximum skill acquisition in adjusting by the  Chiropractor. We utilize ethnographic teaching techniques which promote superior clinical learning and application. 

The participant will be immersed in practical application learning scenarios  based upon a neurological model of health care. The techniques of adjusting are those developed by Frederick R Carrick, DC, PhD, MS-HPEd, DACAN,  DABCN, DACNB, FACCN, and featured on the PBS Television documentary:  WAKING UP THE BRAIN: AMAZING ADJUSTMENTS. 

All attendees are required to be a Licensed Chiropractor or Chiropractic Student to attend this specialty module.

The goal of this module is to educate the participants in the importance of chiropractic adjusting technique as it pertains to the practice of chiropractic. Emphasis will be placed on information pertaining to the clinical applicableness of chiropractic technique as it relates to expressive nature of human function and interaction. Further emphasis will be placed on the multi-modal integrative aspect of human function and its relationship to disease and human suffering. Of particular importance and interest is hands on nature of the program.

The basic aspects of neuroscience as it pertains to chiropractic technique will be the center of discussion for this module as to provide a solid foundation for the learner to build more complex clinical applications. The goal of this module is for the learner to increase his/her skill levels in performing osseous adjustments of human joint articulations and muscles.

After Completion Of This Course Participants Will Be Able To:

Understand the indications and contra-indications of spinal and extremity manipulation/adjustment of joints.
Utilize techniques that are specific to the doctor’s individual body type
Utilize techniques that are specific to the patient’s individual body type and neurological status.
Utilize neurological diagnostic skills in the choice of manipulative/adjustive therapy applications
Understand neurological signs that would dictate the areas of manipulation/adjustment and be able to measure the consequences of these therapies
Understand the integration of head and eye movements and their role in manipulation/adjustment of the spine.
Learn and perform coupled manipulations/adjustments to the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine and sacro-iliac joints.

Learn and perform manipulations/adjustments to the temporomandibular joint, sternocostal, costovertebral and costotransvers rib joints, shoulder joints, clavicles, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, and foot.

All attendees are required to be a Licensed Chiropractor or Chiropractic Student to attend this specialty module.

What Sets This Adjusting Program Apart from other adjusting courses?

Our participants will learn skills that have contributed to Prof Carrick’s global reputation in the diagnosis and treatment of complex neurological syndromes.

Our scholars benefit from an advanced pedagogical methodology that promotes mastery of the clinical subject material.  Participants will be involved in hands-on examination and interpretation of joint movement and central neurological controls of the motor system. Further, they will be trained in the development of treatment paradigms specific to the clinical findings that they observe.  The manipulation techniques are specific to neurological integration and the skill levels associated with these techniques are instructed to develop mastery.  They will be instructed in the design and creation of a clinical practice that might utilize these skills. 

This is a hands-on practical experience that will prepare you to be able to develop the technical skills necessary to perform manipulation/adjustments of joints of the spine and extremities.
Participants should be able to understand neurological signs that would dictate the areas of manipulation/adjustment and be able to measure the consequences of these therapies.
Candidates can be expected to be able to learn and apply manual therapies of manipulation/adjustment as a consequence of participation in this course.
This program of study is central to the hands on adjusting of joints without the use of instrumentation or anesthesia. Our program is designed to promote maximum skill acquisition in adjusting by the practicing clinician. The participant will be immersed in practical application learning scenarios based upon a neurological model of health care.
