Animal Chiropractic is becoming more and more popular as chiropractic patients learn that their pets can get the same positive results from chiropractic that they get. During the coronavirus pandemic, people have spent more time at home and with their pets as companions. In this 12-hour seminar, Dr. Roecker provides insight and training on how to become part of an integrated team of healthcare practitioners who treat animals. In this course, Dr. Roecker defines animal chiropractic – what it is, and what it is not. She covers the history of animal chiropractic and the role of chiropractic in integrated pain management for animals. She also discusses standards in education, licensing, and research. On Sunday, Dr. Roecker discusses safety and handling of the animal patient and covers comparative anatomy. She provides an overview of the physical examination and uses videos to demonstrate the examination procedures. She then presents a palpation lab and a live demonstration. She wraps up this excellent seminar with a discussion of zoonotic diseases and coping with loss.
Dr. Roecker is a 2011 graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic, and a 2017 graduate of Options for Animals College of Chiropractic. She is certified by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA). Dr. Roecker practices at the Animal Medical Center of Mid-America where she provides chiropractic care for animals. This will be a fun educational event. The seminar will be held in a classroom and at the Logan Outdoor Pavilion. Information tables will be provided by the Humane Society of Missouri and Options for Animals. If you have a desire to treat animals and add another dimension to your practice this is the seminar for you!
