The Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP) seminar series presents practical objective-based solutions for treating the extremities. The seminar series teaches how diagnosis and treatment is made simple through understanding the biomechanical functions of each joint.Chiropractic often stresses the importance of nerve interference in the spine, but neglects that it may also occur in the extremities. This simplified process utilizes muscle tests as indicators for adjusting, providing instant feedback for patients when their strength returns immediately. While these seminars do teach some of the “textbook” information behind the process, the real value is the “hands-on” approach that will teach you how to efficiently implement these methods into your care the next day . . . and with little more than your hands, you can get started without a huge investment.
CCEP 4 – Introduction to Principles of Foot, Gait & Orthotics
Presented by Dan Prince
Posture, both static and kinetic, is discussed and demonstrated. Primary and secondary shock absorbers of gait are related to their major muscle and nerve root. Neutral position of the foot is defined and demonstrated when it is pathomechanical and truly neutral. Structural deformities such as leg length, rear foot and forefoot varus/valgus, functional hallucislimitus (FHL), equinus, and others will be covered.
Orthotics for common foot disorders and posture problems will be demonstrated. Learn how to cast a foot in true neutral position non-weight bearing. Learn why the foundation of the spine truly starts at the ground. Learn the difference between functional and accommodative foot orthoses, and learn to make functional orthoses (students will be making functional orthoses in this class for themselves).
