Chiropractors are commonly facing issues presented to them by treating more and more sport and dance related lower extremity injuries. This highly specialized field will challenge the practitioner to bring a new and varied approach to that emerging segment of their patient population.
This course is designed to give the general practicing chiropractor a fundamental approach to rehabilitating an athlete or dancer emphasizing the lower extremity and the lower back once the injury has progressed from the acute stage of care. The information provided will be directed at returning the patient/athlete back to their respective endeavor. Emphasis will be placed on movement analysis, corrective exercise, building strength and prevention. A review of sports related injuries common to an anatomical region and the stages of healing will be presented.
The course is a dynamic interactive workshop with the registrants actively participating in the analysis and corrective exercises commonly used by specialists.
