Evidence Based Practice? Alternative Therapeutic Techniques for Managing Pain – Home Study

  • Board Restrictions note: Co-sponsored courses may not be eligible for CE in Tennessee; Credit calculations may vary for New Mexico approval
  • In days of Evidence Based Practice, many chiropractors battle with the balance of evaluating evidence and combining it with clinical decision making and their patient’s values.  In fact, the focus solely on systematic reviews and only the scientific merit has skewed what EBP was originally planned to be.


    This course allows a review of EBP and then reflects its application and utility by walking through several alternative medical techniques many question relative to their evidence. This causes chiropractors to deal with the grey of EBP, and also consider the merits of the techniques relative to their evidence. Thus, this fills many gaps. One the gap in thinking about evidence relative to treatment. Another the ability to digest RCT’S and Systematic Reviews with a critical eye to what they are telling us about these alternative pain management techniques. And lastly, provide chiropractors with the evidence to make informed decisions relative to selecting these techniques in practice.
