Course Description

Proprioception (sense of proprioception) is an important bodily neuromuscular sense. It falls under our "sixth sense", more commonly known as somatosensation. The term somatosensation (or somatosensory senses) is an all-encompassing term which includes the sub-categories of mechanoreception (vibration, pressure,and discriminatory touch), thermoreception (temperature), nociception (pain), equilibrioception (balance) and proprioception (sense of positioning and movement). The feedback from all these different sensory components arise from our peripheral nervous system (PNS), and feed information to our central nervous system (CNS), both at the level of the spinal cord (reflexive) and sent to the cerebral cortex for higher processing.

The information shared in this seminar enables doctors to optimally assist these people. People experiencing proprioceptive challenges are coming to chiropractic clinics with conditions related to MVAs, sports injuries, falls, or neurological issues. As chiropractors, we are ideally situated to be able to help these people. Remember that most people are unaware they have, or are developing proprioceptive problems

This course will cover how to determine and what may help with patients suffering from many types of proprioceptive conditions. We will look at what it takes to correct some of these problems.How we change this is important and necessary for optimal health as well as learning.

Proprioception is the perception of body position and movements in three-dimensional space, and overall proprioceptive performances determined by the quality of both the available proprioceptive information and an individual’s proprioceptive ability.

Thus, the hardware (peripheral mechanoreceptors) provides proprioceptive information to the brain for the software (central processing) to integrate and use.

It’s recommended, as one who treats those with proprioceptive related conditions that you learn where these types of conditions may lead. Getting effective treatment is frequently complicated by the challenge of diagnosing the specific source of the problem and finding clinicians with the knowledge and experience to treat these problems.

This course is designed to give basic essential information needed to diagnosis and treat uncomplicated proprioceptive dysfunction and related disorders.

It is our hope that after attending this 2 part 12-hour continued educational course that you become one of the clinicians people recommend to others when it comes to proprioceptive issues.

Part 1 of this two part seminar will focus on balance, what it is and how do we improve it. Both parts are 6 hours long for a total of 12 hours.

After completing the seminar, we believe you will be equipped with the information needed to identify common clinical signs and symptoms of proprioceptive issues with your patients and incorporate an appropriate treatment.
