ICSMLogo2013The International Conference on Spinal ManipulationTM (ICSM) resumes in 2013 after a decade long hiatus. The conference previously hosted by the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research (FCER), ceased existence when FCER dissolved a few years ago. Co-sponsored by the International Spine Research (INSPIRE) Foundation, and with support of a grant from the William M. Harris Family Foundation, ICSM was resurrected to again provide a forum for the presentation of original scientific papers and scholarly work in the field. The scientific committee is largely comprised of members of the chiropractic profession, including Gert Bronfort, PhD, Christopher Colloca, DC, and Scott Haldeman, DC, MD, PhD. John Childs, PT, PhD, a board-certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist and a Fellow in the American Academy of Orthopaedic and Manual Physical Therapists also serves on the ICSM scientific committee.

icsmvenue2The 2013 International Conference on Spinal Manipulation will be held October 25-26, 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona at the Phoenix Marriott Tempe Butte’s Resort. The call for papers invited researchers from all disciplines, professions and fields with an interest in the field to submit their original research to this multi-disciplinary international scientific conference. Submissions underwent peer-review and were scored and categorized into Basic Science, Clinical Science, Diagnosis and Treatment, Technique, Special Interest and Education. Ten original scientific research presentations were selected for platform presentation that will accompany an additional five plenary lectures to round out the scientific sessions.

On Saturday, October 26, conference delegates will receive the special privilege of hearing from world-renowned neurophysiologist, Professor John Cavanaugh, MS, MD, PE, from the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Orthopaedic Surgery in the Colleges of Engineering and School of Medicine from Wayne State University in Detroit. Dr. Cavanaugh’s Keynote Address will focus on his decades of work studying the neurophysiology of the facet joint and its role as a pain generator. His award winning research has culminated in more than 70 scientific journal articles and over 100 scientific conference proceedings.

The ICSM Organizing Committee would like to extend an invitation to all doctors of chiropractic and chiropractic students and anyone interested in the field of spinal manipulation encouraging them to support spinal research by attending the conference. Proceeds from the conference benefit the non-profit INSPIRE Foundation. The oral presentations together with invited and plenary lectures will comprise an impressive scientific program showcasing the latest research in the field. There are also a number of opportunities for collegial networking to enjoy each other’s company during the conference social events where friendships are ignited or rekindled and new collaborations are sparked. Twelve Continuing Education Credits have been approved for the 2013 ICSM co-sponsored by the Postgraduate Division of New York Chiropractic College.

Tom Owen, President of AMC says “With our new guarantee, chiropractors have no excuse not to seek the help they need.”

amc logoAugust 2013- After 50 years of helping chiropractors grow their practices and working to advance chiropractic, AMC has adopted a new name in order to better reflect their mission with coaching and management training for chiropractic practices. AMC is now, Advanced Management for Chiropractors. AMC President Tom Owen says “AMC’s services will always be affordable. Our mission is to advance chiropractic with advanced methods that advance the profession and the practices of those we work with, so we felt this change best communicated our mission. We are also very excited to announce that we have also gone back to our roots by bringing back our “If you don’t grow, you don’t owe- PERIOD!” guarantee. These two changes are huge for the AMC family and for doctors who need and want the training that AMC provides.”

Attendees were overheard saying that they now believe that “with this no risk guarantee their friends and colleagues have no excuse but to join AMC”. With the “If You don’t grow, You don’t owe- PERIOD!” guarantee, AMC does not get paid until their training and coaching begin to grow the practices of those they work with. No other management company in the industry gives a similar guarantee.

AMC, Advanced Management for Chiropractors, offers their members one on one coaching, in person training at their Boot Camps, 50 nationwide training centers where doctors can see the AMC principles in action, webinars, an online video library and more. They have a 50 year track record of success and have helped thousands of chiropractors to change their practices, their lives and the lives of those around them. AMC President Tom Owen says “It’s important for chiropractors to know that we give you solid business principles to grow your practice. There are no gimmicks, tricks or stuff to sell. Our protocols are ethical, moral and legal.”
