This year's Convention will feature the following speakers and topics:

Best Practice” Management of LBP (8 hours)

Tim Bertelsman DC, CCSP, FACO

This practical presentation will review the current standard of care, including the most clinically relevant assessments and treatments for the conditions responsible for LBP. Dr Bertelsman will show you how to choose treatment based upon a specific diagnosis and classification to improve your outcomes dramatically. You will leave this class with practical, evidence-based skills for managing the “Continuum of Low Back Pain”.

Functional Assessment and Rehabilitation of Musculoskeletal Disorders” (8 hours)

Dr. Bryan Bond

A continuing education course for healthcare providers that frequently manage musculoskeletal conditions. Human movement analysis, or identifying dysfunctional motor patterns, may play an important role in pinpointing the underlying cause of symptoms, rather than simply isolating sources of pain. While establishing clinical assessment from the viewpoint of a movement pattern, the clinician may recognize meaningful impairments that appear unrelated to primary main musculoskeletal complaint, but actually cause or facilitate the associated pain syndrome. In addition, this workshop provides pragmatic rehabilitation protocols for shoulder and spinal disorders.
