Animal chiropractic is becoming more and more popular as chiropractic patients learn that their pets can get the same positive results from chiropractic as humans can. During the COVID-19 pandemic, people have spent more time at home and with their pets as companions.
In a 12-hour seminar on Integration of Chiropractic for the Animal Health Care Practice, Susan Roecker, DC (’11) provides insight and training on how to become part of an integrated team of health care practitioners who treat animals. In this course, rescheduled to June 12-13, 2021 on Logan University’s campus, Dr. Roecker defines animal chiropractic and its history and covers the role of chiropractic in integrated pain management for animals. She also discusses standards in education, licensing and research, as well as safety and handling of the animal patient. Dr. Roecker also covers comparative anatomy, 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 and wraps up the seminar with a discussion of zoonotic diseases and coping with loss.
Dr. Roecker is a 2011 graduate of Logan University 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. A catered lunch will be provided on Saturday, and a catered brunch on Sunday, along with door prizes. 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!
