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. Our participants will learn skills that have contributed to Prof Carrick’s global reputation in the diagnosis and treatment of complex neurological syndromes. This work has been the subject of the PBS Emmy Award-winning documentary Waking up the Brain: Amazing Adjustments as well as countless primetime television and major newspaper and journal articles.  Prof Carrick has been referred to as the “Doctor to the Stars” in the press for his work with celebrities, professional, collegiate and Olympic athletes.  These skills are a major component of this success and our learners will be blessed to study with Prof Carrick personally.

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.

Benefits for learners

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. Participants will receive 3 months of unlimited access to Medline after course completion.

Participants will receive a digital version of this class included in their tuition for one year and 3 months of unlimited access to Medline.

 

Our pedagogy

We want our participants to develop lifelong learning skills and mastery of their clinical applications. Participants in our program will receive a continuous follow-up to their training that is delivered to their smart phone, tablets, or computer after they have completed the program at no additional cost.

All participants are given access to the Carrick Institute library and Medline access.   They will have direct access to published scientific papers that will complement their learning and increase their clinical skills.
