Logan University’s College of Chiropractic Postgraduate Department is proud to welcome Dr. Christopher Proulx to our campus. Dr. Proulx is a well-respected educator and practitioner with particular expertise in spinal rehabilitation and therapeutic modalities. Today Dr. Proulx presents Integration of Spinal Distraction into Clinical Practice to Improve Outcomes and Patient Retention. This is a 6-hour, Saturday-only presentation – a perfect way to get important information on spinal care and rehabilitation, earn 6 hours of continuing education, and still have Sunday to relax and unwind before you begin using this information in your office Monday morning. The purpose of this class is to provide a foundation of appropriate mechanical spinal distraction techniques based on current rationale. The scope is inclusive of approaches applicable to common conditions treated with modalities in the chiropractic clinic. This demonstration/lecture course will also provide the participant with an overview of the effects of the modalities on specific conditions. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss treatment protocols and obtain practical experience in the implementation of the protocols.

In this presentation Dr. Proulx discusses and demonstrates the principles of mechanical spinal distraction; teaches how to determine protocols for selected conditions in spinal mechanical distraction; discusses the basis of spinal rehabilitation; describes a multi-modal approach to treatment including indications and outcomes for therapeutic modalities in practice; describes protocol determination and patient compliance; and describes the sequencing of therapies and treatment guidelines. The seminar is taught by Christopher M. Proulx, D.C. Dr. Proulx is a 2001 graduate of New York Chiropractic College. He also holds a BS degree in Physical Education; Sports Management; Health and Fitness, a Master’s degree in Exercise Science; Performance and Outcomes Measures, and a PHD in Exercise Science; Biomechanical Performance Based Outcomes Measures from Warnbrough College in Dublin, Ireland. He is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Health Sciences at the College of Chiropractic at both the University of Bridgeport and New York Chiropractic College. At the conclusion of today’s presentation the doctor will be able to describe the basic biomechanical and physiological aspects of mechanical spinal distraction; describe the appropriate patient treatment of specific spinal conditions with mechanical spinal distraction; describe the progression in spinal rehabilitation and therapeutic modalities; describe the integration of therapeutic modalities into clinical practice; and describe contraindications of therapeutic modalities. Please join Dr. Proulx this Saturday and put these procedures to work Monday morning!
