Biomechanics and Imaging of the Disc

This first lecture, Biomechanics and Imaging of the Disc, will increase the chiropractor’s ability to interpret radiology reports on their patients and integrate this information into their treatment plans. Discussed will be how posture can predispose someone to a disc lesion and the biomechanics as it relates to the disc. It will also enhance your ability to look at the images and have a better understanding of the anatomy as it pertains to disc lesions. You will look at full MRI scans and walk through the anatomy and disc nomenclature so you can correlate what you see clinically to what is found on the images.

State of the Art Imaging of the Athletic Throwing Arm

The throwing athlete undergoes repetitive “trauma” to the shoulder and elbow and can suffer from various injuries. In this lecture the Yochums cover pathology specifically related to the athletic arm such as internal shoulder impingement, ulnar collateral ligament (Tommy John’s) injury, SLAP tears and rotator cuff injury. They will also discuss the biomechanics associated with various pathology of the arm.

The Effects of Gut Health on Athletic Performance

Research suggests there is a correlation between gut health and athletic performance. The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is responsible for regulating the traffic of molecules between the environment and the body through a barrier mechanism. When this precise trafficking of molecules becomes dysregulated, metabolism can slow, the musculoskeletal system can degenerate and sports performance can decrease. To truly improve on a patient’s health, we need to understand how each system interacts with one another. Dr. Silverman will teach attendees how to implement nutritional and laser protocols for gut health. Additionally, analyze lab assessments and learn athletic rehab, giving you the edge in your sports community.
