Dates: October 11-13, 2019 Program Title: 2019 Part II Cox® Seminar for Certification: The Cox® Technic System for Spine Pain Relief Times: Friday: Friday, 3:00pm-7:00pm; Saturday, 8:00am-7:00pm; Sunday, 8:00am-12:00pm Instructors: James M Cox DC DACBR FACOH; Lee Hazen DC; George Joachim DC DACRB; Ram Gudavalli PhD; Ralph Kruse DC FACO; Kurt Olding DC DACO; Dean Greenwood DC DACO Total CE Hours: 18.0 Description: This Part II 3-days course allows an intense session of learning the protocols of the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for Lumbar, Thoracic, and Cervical Spine from the biomechanics to the examination and diagnosis to the treatment and research-documented clinical and research-laboratory documented outcomes. This course builds on the non-disc material from Part I. The Part II material is focused on discogenic condition material mixed with treatment demonstration and practice before the certification examination optional is made available. Part II allows gives you the latest in biomechanics and clinical research and more on the disc-related conditions and cervical spine. Goals/Objectives: By the end of Part II, the attendees will have a list of research papers about the biomechanics of flexion-distraction adjusting, an understanding of the latest research studies being conducted with federally funded researchers, an examination that is thorough, and hands-on skills to start using flexion-distraction in their practices right away. The attendees will more thoroughly understand the discogenic causes of back and neck pain as well as their care based on federally funded research with evidence-based protocols measured with a pressure transducer that each attendee will have the opportunity to use. The latitude of published support for chiropractic and Cox Technic flexion distraction in the care of neck, arm, back and leg pain is emphasized. Topics: discogenic conditions examination, diagnosis, treatment – hands on practice of protocols – patient management with regards to nutrition, exercise, rehab, ergonomics and understanding their condition – Cervical spine biomechanics, examination, diagnosis, treatment and clinical outcomes – patient cases from clinical practice are presented. The focus is lumbar spine. The certification is in lumbar spine.
