Cervical Spine Trauma Symposium at SCUHS

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

Brochures, mailers, postcards, and faxes are increasingly coming into my chiropractic office with seminars and events taking place in the Southern California area during the first few months of 2008. There’s Dan Murphy’s nutritional neurology event taking place in Irvine in January, and I just noticed there’s going to be a interdisciplinary symposium held on campus at the Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCUHS) on February 23rd and 24th.

Information regarding the event is available in the continued education section of the events and seminar pages. There is expected to be 12 hours of continuing education credits available which includes one hour of technique and one hour of x-ray.

Some of the topics include…

  • a review of the literature on pain management
  • cervical mobilization with movement
  • co management of acute pain management in cervical radiculopathy patients
  • concussion research
  • differentiating between C6 radiculopathy and shoulder pathology
  • new technology for single level disc pathology
  • presentation and diagnosis of myelopathy
  • scapula bracing to reduce cervical spine myofascial pain
  • TMJ pathology associated with cervical trauma

Be sure to check the seminar section for details and contact information. Also, as I’ve mentioned recently, don’t forget to check CE credit requirements in your state when attending events.

Campus is located in Southern California
