    This four hour course is a survey of the chiropractic assessment and treatment for a number of common presentations of low back pain into chiropractic offices. This four hour course discusses the impact of low back pain in the United States, the conundrum of the high failure rate in treating low back pain, and unique signs and symptoms of three common musculoskeletal origins of low back pain. Red flags and medical emergencies, as well as a number of common organic causes of low back pain will also be discussed, as well as how to manage them.

    The technique portion of the course will discuss listings, patient setup, doctor setup, contact points, and line of drive. Varying spinal listings will be compared and contrasted, and combinatory dysfunctions will be addressed with regard to treatment hierarchy.

    This course will be valuable for veteran and new chiropractors alike, as it not only describes and demonstrates numerous chiropractic adjustments (Gonstead and Diversified), but also discusses why so many patient presentations end up as enigmas, leading to a revolving door of multiple doctors’ assessments, various treatments, and ultimately, patient frustration.

There are certain perks to online chiropractic continuing education programs, including the safety and comfort of classes taken at home or in the office, and reduction of travel expenses.

    Maintaining Continuing Education Credit Requirements

    The Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards (FCLB) has been working to ensure that all chiropractors would have access to online chiropractic continuing education programs. To address the current challenges, the FCLB encouraged member state boards to utilize the Providers of Approved Continuing Education (PACE) program to promote more online continuing education credit completion, versus in-person classes and seminars. Each state board dictates the level of distance learning they will allow, with some requiring a greater number of in-person education hours. In an effort to accommodate practitioner safety during COVID-19, several states who previously did not accept many hours of online chiropractic continuing education moved to allow emergency acceptance of online relicensure CE.. PACE Recognized Providers were also quick to provide chiropractic continuing education courses that were specific to COVID-19.

    Online Chiropractic CE Courses: Flexibility and Convenience

    With online chiropractic continuing education courses, attendees can participate in the comfort of their own home or office, which at this time is a safer learning environment.
