Curriculum Vitae

Neurology of the VSC & Thompson Technique 2

Course Description

The five component model of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) broken down. Potential causes of the VSC, and it's proposed neurological implications on the human body are described in a clear and concise manner, giving the doctor a practical understanding of the material. The neurological model presented will outline the VSC's proposed aberrant effect on proprioception, nociception, immunity and the ANS. The neurological effects will be detailed at the site of subluxation, as well as the potential global effects on the human body. 

In addition to the neurology, an in depth consultation and demonstration on Advanced Thompson Analysis for children, will implement a very large practical component to this weekend. Full spine analysis, detection and adjustments will be practiced within the seminar, providing a hands-on learning environment. The effects of each adjustment will be tied back to the neurology of the VSC, ensuring practical understanding of all topics covered.

Note: Required Material for the class: Portable tables, Dolls, Toggle boards if you have them to class.

Seminar Content:

" I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the great seminar in
Seattle a couple weeks ago! You really did a wonderful job and I am
grateful for what you do in this proffession!"

-Dr. Amy Spoelstra Coeur d Alene, ID

"Dr. John Minard's knowledge to back up the neurology was the most inspiring thing I have seen! In school you learn neurology and technique as two seperate things the way you put it together was such a gift to us as chiropractors to know and be able to explain and put together"

"Very good explanation of the VSC. It is something I see all day in my patients and reminded me of the importance & effects on our body that VSC has"

"He did a great job. One of the best conferences I have attended"

"I was at the seminar this past weekend in Media and I really got a lot out of it. I think Dr. John Minardi's visual aids and style of teaching were perfect for and cleared up some things I was unclear of previously."

"Excellent! In depth info to help explain how the adjustment works for anyone"

How class will benefit practice: 

"I learned techniques I will
definitely use and continue to use. I learned better ways of
explaining neurology"

“The class gave me information that was practical & interesting"


How class materials apply to practical application: 

"I am very happy to actually learn how VSC applies to all the neurology we learned in school & how an adjustment
affects it.

"Very practical techniques to use BOTH on adults & children-can beused immediately on Monday"

"Great analysis to follow during adjustment. Great way to know when to stop adjusting. Easy way to explain VSC to patients"

"I can understand how to adjust better and change the body."

Most Value:   

"Down to earth speaker, helpful, willing to explain, knowledgeable"
