SELECTED CONTINUING EDUCATION

Spinal Biomechanical-EngineeringA course describing the structural and functional organization of the spinal-pelvic system.  Fundamental and advanced concepts on spinal biomechanics are introduced by presenting a coherent spinal model describing normal segmental coupling, regional adaptation and global compensation. The clinical model is a structural and mechanical engineering approach based on x-ray physics, mathematics and statistical analysis. The normal movements of gait are integrated in this total biomechanical approach to explain spine distortion, predictable functional scoliosis and lumbar disc failure. Case studies are demonstrated to radiographic analyses and physical findings to determine clinical solutions and soft tissue rehabilitation.

Why is proper care important?

Injuries from car accidents are not the same as other injuries. You have to take into account many factors; impact force and direction, road conditions, body positions of the passengers, the way your head was facing, did you hit anything inside the car...the list goes on…..and on.

You need someone who is aware of all these things. Research shows that even low speed collisions, with little damage, can result in injuries to your body. Headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, chest pain, arm pain and numbness, dizziness, loss of sleep...they are all symptoms of a "whiplash" type injury.
