This seminar addresses chiropractic for infants through two years old. Whether you are a recent graduate needing more exposure to pediatric in order to begin, or you are an experienced pediatric chiropractor looking to reinforce skills and learn something new, this seminar is for you. You will have the opportunity to practice (on dolls, not on live infants) and discuss what you are learning. Make infants part of your practice with confidence, with Dr. Geraldine Mulhall-Wright, DC.
As a result of participating in this course, learners will be better able to:
- properly examine newborns through age two;
- identify signs and symptoms of children heading for the autistic spectrum; and
- know when a child is ready to transition from meningeal nervous system adjustments to a stronger, more manual adjustment.
