: METHODS 4: LUMBOPELVIC MANUAL THERAPIES
Introduction to applied adjustive procedures using high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts to lumbar and pelvic regions; continued development of same in the cervical and thoracic regions. Methods derived from various technique systems (e.g. Gonstead, Thompson, Faye, Diversified) are practiced under direct supervision after PARTS evaluation has identified segments for which adjustments are indicated. Provide the student with an introduction to high velocity, low amplitude thrust techniques for the lumbar spine and pelvis. Emphasis is on the development of the psychomotor skills necessary to safely apply the techniques to dysfunctional joints.
: METHODS 5
In this course, students will review psychomotor skills learned in previous methods courses as well as explore assessment and management strategies for common axial and appendicular conditions. Students will continue to develop their skills and discuss specific modifications that may be necessary to fit specific doctor and/or patient needs. Online case studies are utilized in conjunction with classroom discussions of those cases to help students develop their clinical reasoning skills and interpret clinical relevance of history and examination findings. These exercises also incorporate discussion concerning treatment plans for the management of commonly encountered spinal conditions.
: METHODS 6: PRACTICUM 2
Continued development of chiropractic diagnostic and adjustive skills. Complete management strategies of common axial and appendicular conditions are discussed and practiced.
Students will study the presentation, diagnosis and treatment of common disorders and complaints of the peripheral and central nervous systems.
: NEUROMUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM 3: EXTREMITY DISORDERS
Discussion of the biomechanics of the extremities and the presentation, diagnosis and treatment of common complaints and disorders. Students practice diagnostic and treatment procedures, including adjustments and manipulations, and discuss how doctors of chiropractic can participate in the management of patients with extremity disorders.
: NEUROMUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM 1: PRINCIPLES AND OVERVIEW
Discussion of the integral relationship between neuromusculoskeletal structure and function and the healthy function of all other body systems and organs. Introduction to the evaluation and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal responses to common postural and traumatic insults and to pathologies in the neuromusculoskeletal system and other body systems. Students practice diagnostic and treatment procedures and discuss how chiropractors can participate in the management of patients who have N.M.S. disorders.
: NEUROMUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM 2: SPINAL DISORDERS
Discussion of the presentation, diagnosis and treatment of spinal and paraspinal conditions and complaints. Students practice diagnostic and treatment procedures and discuss how doctors of chiropractic can participate in the management of patients who have spinal and paraspinal disorders.
: NEUROSCIENCE 2: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM (CNS)
The anatomy and function of the brain and spinal cord.
