Advanced Spinal Assessment for the Infant and Child

(3 Program Credits) This course has been previously titled: "The Essentials of Chiropractic Care for Newborns, Infants, & Toddlers", "Full-spine Segmental Evaluation and Adjusting".

This course teaches spinal analysis and full spine adjusting for the newborn, infant and toddler populations including visual analysis and case history techniques. Spinal analysis procedures including muscle and motion palpation as well as adjusting techniques adapted from the Gonstead, Diversified and Logan Basic models will be presented. Techniques using the child drop headpiece are included. Expect extensive hands-on application.

Course Goal

Participants gain the skills necessary to locate and analyze vertebral subluxation and have confidence in their ability to make gentle, specific adjustments in the newborn, infant and toddler.

What to Bring: Please bring a portable adjusting table, a pediatric drop headpiece and a baby doll (a 20-inch baby doll is recommended). The recommendation is "Mon Bébé". Having these items will help you get the most out of your seminar experience.
