Chiropractic Continuing Education Green Books Study with Harold George

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

Continuing education is something all practicing chiropractors in the United States are required to do. Opportunities for continuing education are numerous, with weekend chiropractic seminars taking place (typically near airports) throughout the United States. Like most chiropractors, if it’s the month of my birthday, I will seek out what education is nearby, but for several years now I’ve been getting my hours months in advance. Thanks to Planet Chiropractic Seminars I get to see lists of events taking place across the country, and I’m really glad I chose the green books education class during Sherman Lyceum with Dr. Harold George.

Something I really admired about the continuing education being provided at 2013 Sherman Lyceum was that there were courses like the one being taught by Dr. Harold George. His three-hour continuing education class was focused on appreciating the importance in understanding the Green Books in relation to providing chiropractic care to patients.

Harold George, D.C., L.C.P., D.Ph.The program taught by Dr. George reviewed the 33 Principles and how they relate in today’s lifestyles. He asked… Should the Principles be changed to the current language of today? Are the B. J. Palmer Green Books dogma, or are they still representing the foundation of today’s chiropractic practice?

A philosophical discussion of chiropractic concepts in patient care took place in the classroom, which included old-time chiropractors and about to graduate chiropractic students. We could have spent the entire day discussing Stephenson’s major premise… A Universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.

These are the types of continuing education classes I’d like to see offered by those that teach chiropractic continuing education. The classroom was full and the interaction was strong, I believe every chiropractor in attendance left with a better understanding of chiropractic philosophy and its relationship to providing care in today’s world.

For a chiropractor in the state of California, traveling to South Carolina may seem like a stretch for receiving continuing education, but in my opinion it is worth it. Always check to see that the courses you are going for have approval for re-licensing hours in your state. The state of California has this year increased the number of hours to 24 hours per year from 12 hours per year, and this weekend I will be at the 2013 California Chiropractic Association Annual Convention, receiving even more hours of continuing education. I actually love this stuff. @ 12:31 pm | Article ID: 1369931488
