Unit 1 Spinal Adjustment of the Child 15 CE
This unit addresses that area of practice which is fundamental to what we do as chiropractors in our management of the pediatric patient: the spinal adjustment of the child.
With the help of 58 instructional videos, this module presents low impulse adjusting techniques for neonates and infants, as well as manual and drop piece adjusting for both the baby, as well as the toddler and older child. Perhaps most importantly, this module focusses on those aspects of pediatric adjusting that potentially are of most practical value for the family practitioner in private practice. For this reason, the techniques presented are of clinical value to both experienced chiropractors as well as new graduates and are both easy to learn and very importantly, easy to implement into your practice immediately.
