Stand out from the crowd – Treat complex extremity cases!
We are proud to partner with the Council on Extremity Adjusting (CEA) as
the West coast location for the Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP) seminar series.
DCs may register for individual seminars or the full CCEP series.
Global Assessment of the Extremities – Certified Chiropractic Extremities Practitioner
The final module of the Extremity Practitioner series summarizes the CCEP series with practical management tools that benefit chiropractors & their patients.
Learn to evaluate and consider the local, regional, and global effects of extremity and spinal dysfunction, and their neurological implications. This program integrates information about the spine & extremities for patient management as a whole rather than limiting care to the chief complaint.
This course will illustrate, demonstrate, integrate, and provide opportunities for learners to practice the concepts of the six other modules from a global perspective.
Saturday, 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
Sunday, 8:00 am – 2:00 pm
