ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUES®
Faculty: Mike Leahy, D.C.
Soft Tissue Management System gives the provider the ability to make immediate changes for the athlete or the worker. Using precise biomechanics and soft tissue diagnosis, the source of problems is found. Using motion of the body with a manual tension on specific tissues, a “release” can be obtained, allowing proper function.
ACUTE NON-PATHOLOGICAL LOW BACK PAIN & TMD: DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
Faculty: Charles Blum, D.C.
Treatment of Severe Acute Non-Pathological Low Back Pain
What happens when a patient can barely walk through your door and is in acute pain with all movements, such as standing or sitting? Sacro Occipital Technique offers some very quick diagnostic and, particularly, non-traumatic procedures, which help you develop a plan of treatment and help reduce the patient’s pain and increase function.
TMD: Diagnosis and Treatment—Chiropractic and Dental Co-treatment Models
How do you know when it is time to refer a patient with TMJ dysfunction for dental care? Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) have ascending patterns from the feet up to the TMJ and descending patterns from the TMJ downward which necessitate different care. Learn how to differentiate these patterns, work together with a dentist to help patients with the condition, and develop interdisciplinary relationships.
THE ATM® CONCEPT
Faculty: Jay Kennedy, D.C.
An integrated neural/passive/active functional approach for treating musculoskeletal disorders, Active Therapeutic Movements (ATM®’s) provide immediate and long-lasting benefits for many back, neck, shoulder, pelvis, hip, and knee sufferers. By definition, ATM’s consist of a few active neuromuscular movements superimposed upon a specific passive holding. ATM’s aim to immediately alter symptoms by affecting the Central Nervous System (CNS) control. The ATM2 is a clinical tool designed to enable effective user operated ATM’s.
Faculty: Richard Busch III, D.C.
Healing herniated disc with axial decompression, and how that affects your practice.
Faculty: Lisa Upledger, D.C.
CranioSacral Therapy and the Vertebral Subluxation Complex
We will take a different look at the vertebral subluxation by understanding and palpating the dynamic craniosacral system. This system, which houses the brain, spinal cord and nerve roots, influences neurological function and, therefore, helps us gain a deeper insight into vertebral misalignment
Seminar Thursday. Registration Fee $105
Faculty: Thomas F. Bergmann, D.C.
Diversified adjustive procedures consist of high velocity, low amplitude thrusts that usually result in a cavitation of a joint. These thrust procedures are applied specifically to a short lever contact point on the spine or extremities; though long levers and, especially, combinations of long and short levers are also used. These techniques attempt to use the normal biomechanics of the spine and extremities in order to create motion in spinal or extremity joints, with the goal of restoring function and structure to the joint. The workshop will focus on the role that patient positioning and pre-stress play in producing effects on specific joints. What we say we are doing and what we really are doing may be two different things!
FLEXION-DISTRACTION & DECOMPRESSION
Faculty: Leander Eckard, D.C.
MANIPULATION UNDER ANESTHESIA
Faculty: Robert Gordon, D.C.
Concepts in Theory and Application
Today the chiropractic physician is able to take his/her great skills into a more intense environment (the Operating Room) and use those skills to correct musculoskeletal problems that are only responding minimally to office-based manual/adjustive therapy. Since the advent of newer medications that are being used for the MUA procedure, the patient is put in a physiological state that allows the doctor to complete structural correction without immediate secondary reaction, but protective end range, pain perception, and natural respiratory functions are not lost.
Extra seminar from Thursday to Sunday. Registration Fee $1750
NMT-THE FEINBERG TECHNIQUE
Faculty: Leslie Feinberg, D.C.
Health proceeds from the unfolding of an instruction set that defines the body’s form and function, and disease proceeds from errors in that regulation. NMT: The Feinberg Technique is the energetic medicine system that identifies and corrects any errors in body regulation. It’s the only “alternative” the health care practitioner needs!
Faculty: Kirk Eriksen, D.C.
Orthospinology, which is based on the research and teaching of Dr. John Francis Grosticn is a method of correcting the upper cervical subluxation. The Procedure employs a method of X-ray analysis that quantifies misalignments between the occipito-atlanto-axial articulations. The assessment examines the spatial orientation of the atlas, the geometry of the articulating surfaces, and the misalignment configuration, to arrive at an effective correction vector for each individual patient. Orthospinology teaches hand adjusting, as well as hand-held and table-mounted instrument adjusting.
Seminar on Friday and Saturday. Registration Fee $170
POSTURE AND ANTI-AGING
Faculty: Alan Creed, D.C.
Dr. Alan Creed’s Neural Kinetic Integration Technique facilitates functional and spinal biomechanical architectural improvements, producing immediate noticeable results.

Dr. Creed presents seminars, and has created a manual along with a video set of his techniques.
Seminar on Thursday for 6 hours on Anti-Aging through Neuro-Structural Management. Registration Fee $119
Faculty: Robert Wiegand, D.C.
Tapping into Subcortical Pathways to Elicit Extraordinary Perceptual Abilities
New insights now enable an individual to rapidly develop a heightened awareness of specific subcortical responses that their nervous system produces, when it detects extremely subtle stimuli. By using primal perception, a practitioner can become aware of significant information that their nervous system is detecting outside their “normal” range of conscious perception. This skill facilitates extraordinary specificity and transpersonal connectivity.
Seminar on Thursday for 8 hours and Friday for 4 hours on Access Primal Perception. Registration fee $495.00. Workshop will be limited to 10 participants.
PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF SOT DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM
Faculty: Kurt Larsen, D.C.
Advanced Spinal Screening Incorporating Sacro Occipital Technique Principles
An efficient standing, supine and prone evaluation can be done utilizing a postural analyzer and an adjusting table. Within minutes, the DC can objectively and subjectively relate to the patient: their primary levels of subluxation, the major “category” of involvement, any distortion of head, shoulder or pelvic levels, knee, ankle or arch structural imbalances, and their effects on the body. Learn how this information can be gleaned. Multiple demonstrations of spinal screening will be presented.
Seminar on Thursday for 8-hours. Registration fee $120
SCOLIOSIS CORRECTION SEMINAR CLEAR SOLUTIONS FROM CLEAR INSTITUTE
Faculty: Dennis Woggon, D.C.

• Describe Disc Decompression Therapy.
• Explain clinical indications, contraindications
• Demonstrate the value of the Disc Decompression Therapy to the doctors patients
Faculty: Terence Brady, D.C.
Seminar will instruct practitioners in the use of the Zenith® Thompson drop table as it applies to the correction of vertebral and pelvic subluxations. The Zenith® Thompson drop table applies Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion. The law’s application to the adjustment is as follows: The patient is placed on the table, which has multiple cushions that can be raised under different areas of the body. The cushion tension is set to support the weight of the patient. When force is applied, the preset tension is overcome and the cushion drops, along with the patient, eventually coming to a sudden stop. The force generated by the falling cushion/patient is increased at the point of the doctor’s contact with the patient, causing that bone structure to move in the direction of the force.
TRIGENICS MYONEURAL MEDICINE
Faculty: Alan Gary Oolo Austin, D.C.
Trigenics Myoneural Medicine for the Restoration of Sensorimotor Function
Trigenics® is used on a wide variety of patients, from infants to geriatrics to Olympic and professional athletes. It can be used to treat many conditions, ranging from neuromusculoskeletal to neurological to restrictive capsular and bursal conditions, such as “frozen shoulder.” Also, when treating musculoskeletal conditions, non-treatment of aberrant neural innervation and compensatory tone imbalances (short/weak muscles) will lead to the frustrating outcome of incomplete strength rehabilitation and functional restoration.
UPPER EXTREMITY & LOWER EXTREMITY ADJUSTING TECHNIQUES
Faculty: George LeBeau, D.C.
A new approach to adjusting, which involves the active participation of the patient, in the form of resistance to the doctor’s movements, with focus on extremity techniques. The first demonstration on this technique will be this year during the World Chiropractic Congress in Sydney, Australia. This technique was developed during 10 years of traveling with the U.S. Olympic Judo Team, from 1983 until 1993.
Seminars on Thursday and Friday. Registration Fee $120 for both days, $ 75 for one day
THE WEBSTER TECHNIQUE IN PREGNANCY

For many years, the ICPA has instructed numerous doctors in this technique, and their clinical results show a high success rate in allowing babies in the breech position to go into the normal head down or vertex position.
Seminar on Thursday. Registration Fee $ 119
BIOCHEMICAL BLOOD CHEMISTRY EVALUATION AND NUTRITIONAL ANALYSIS
Faculty: James Cima, D.C.
The purpose of blood chemistry analysis is to diagnose and treat any biochemical malfunction caused by an endocrine imbalance, utilizing nutrition. The endocrine system can be analyzed by developing physiologic reference ranges, not the pathological reference ranges set up at the blood-testing laboratory.
The pathological reference ranges only determine what disease you already have. Physiologic reference ranges look at endocrine and organ malfunction that eventually cause the disease.
Seminar on Thursday. Registration Fee $70. Complimentary Lunch. Bring a blood sample!
THE MIRACLE OF ENZYMES (Bio-Set Technique)
