Attendees at this year’s Women’s Health Symposium will have the pleasure of learning from Alicia M. Yochum, RN, DC (’11), DACBR, RMSK in two separate presentations. In her first, a case-based lecture titled “What Could be Walking Through Your Door?”, she will review a wide range of pathology from sports injury, arthritis, tumors, fractures, spinal cord injuries, infection and neoplasm. In addition, Dr. Yochum will cover the proper utilization of imaging, which will reinforce the principle that arthritis is not the only pathology that chiropractors may treat.
Dr. Yochum’s second presentation, titled “Imaging the Female Patient,” will cover the unique factors associated with imaging the female patient and how those factors impact examination. She will discuss radiation exposure and dosage, cover common female pathology, and review topics like uterine and ovarian carcinoma, pubic osteitis, gallstone and degenerative spondylolisthesis.
