In the ever-evolving world of healthcare, understanding the deeper mechanisms behind therapeutic interventions is crucial. This is precisely what Dr. Antonucci's 1-hour presentation unravels. Diving into the neurology behind a chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Antonucci offers a fusion of clinical expertise and cutting-edge neuroscience, aiming to provide attendees with an enriched understanding of why and how chiropractic care can profoundly impact overall health and well-being. Drawing from years of rigorous research, clinical observations, and patient testimonials, he elucidates the often misunderstood neurological pathways activated during chiropractic adjustments, shedding light on their holistic benefits.
This hands introduction workshop is designed to teach you how your adjustments affect the brain and how knowing this information changes how you adjust your patients. Various concepts of clinical neuroscience will be discussed relating to how subluxations negatively influence the brain. This learning-by-doing workshop focuses on the examination procedures to determine where the brain is not optimal and adjusting strategies to enhance human function.
Beyond just a clinical demonstration, Dr. Antonucci's presentation is a testament to blending traditional healing practices with contemporary scientific scrutiny. This session will be a game-changer for both seasoned chiropractors and students in the field, challenging conventional notions and introducing innovative ideas about the broader implications of chiropractic care on brain health, nervous system function, and systemic wellness. Participants can anticipate walking away with actionable insights, grounded in solid science, that can be directly applied to their practice or personal health journey. In an age where integrative health is at the forefront, understanding the neurology of chiropractic adjustments is not just beneficial – it's essential.
Concussions are complex injuries requiring extensive training and specialty consultation. They are occurring in the general population at staggering incidence rates - more than diabetes and more cancer diagnoses. Chiropractors have a unique position in the healthcare system, with established patient relationships and more frequent interactions, allowing them to be pivotal stewards of brain health and safety. However, research has demonstrated that knowledge among ALL healthcare providers is deficient in identifying and managing mTBI. While many individuals don’t know if they were concussed or the magnitude that their injury may have on their life, this 4-hour, fast-paced course will aid its attendees in making solid recommendations by covering the breadth of concussion, from acute/sideline management, sub-acute therapeutics, and the 7 subtypes of concussion. We aim to enable chiropractors to properly manage or refer patients with concussions, reduce long-term suffering, and promote brain health.
This 2-hour workshop being presented for the Tennessee Chiropractic Association has been developed with one objective in mind: to make functional neurology easily understood, applied, and implemented, for the general chiropractor. The brain is the master control system, and everything a chiropractor does influences a patient’s brain. During this workshop, Dr. Antonucci will help you to develop your neurological observational skills and provide you with simple yet effective assessments, and applications that you can implement immediately with your current patient population.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) is the term given to a procedure that changes the function of living structures utilizes radiation in the form of light. Over the past 60 years, the understanding and research of PBM have allowed the creation of commercial and professional devices with FDA approval and clinical success. This course aims to elaborate on the mechanisms, dosimetry, and pragmatism of utilization as an intervention for acquired brain injuries.
