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.
This course will instruct scholars on how to create, execute, and interpret a 1-hour brain health/concussion baseline assessment. Careful attention has been given to evaluating all 7 concussion phenotypes that were established up to this point in the program. This encompasses over 50 learning objectives and assessments that will be learned and mastered throughout the weekend. Scholars will be assessed for proficiency and need to pass to achieve certification status.
This workshop, brought to you by the Carrick Institute, introduces chiropractic physicians to the tools, examination procedures, and clinical applications they need to help those suffering from concussion. Effectively treating concussion patients is not as simple as adjusting them. Learn the basics of what to know when evaluating a concussion patient and the basics of how this information influences your adjustments and other treatment approaches.
Dr. Antonucci will be taking a research-supported dive into the interplay between the development of the human nervous and its interaction with the environment. This provides a philosophical foundation for utilizing evoked potentials in neurological rehabilitation which can influence or alter muscular tone, reflexes, autonomic function, motor control, cognition, and even affect.
Synapse Sessions brings together leading physicians and researchers in the field to share their work and to give presentations on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning and inspiration in Clinical Neuroscience... all done virtually! The program is offered via online, self-paced learning.
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.
