Neurology of the VSC & Thompson Technique 2

(3 Program Credits) A breakdown and detailed discussion of all five components of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). Develop a practical understanding of the potential causes of the VSC and its neurological implications on the human body. In addition, an in-depth consultation and demonstration on Advanced Thompson Analysis for children will implement a large practical component to this weekend.

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.

Hands-on learning environment: full-spine analysis, detection and adjustments will be practiced at this seminar. The effects of each adjustment will be tied back to the neurology of the VSC, ensuring practical understanding of all topics covered. 

Course Goal

For attendees to have a functional understanding of the neurology of the vertebral subluxation complex (VSC) and have a working understanding of the Thompson Technique, to utilize in practice.

What to Bring: Please bring a portable table, a headpiece (if available) and a baby doll. Any type of baby doll, other than a Barbie (too small) or Cabbage Patch Kid (no neck), is acceptable. The recommendation is "Mon Bébé".

"This is a must know subject if you are a chiropractor.

The understanding of what occurs when your patients have a subluxation not only builds certainty behind what you're delivering but allows you to be able to explain to other professionals what we do."
