Course Description

A new 8-hour E-Seminar from RRS Education on healthy aging!

On-demand, evidence-based continuing education!

Aging is an inevitability that awaits us all. But how gracefully we age is a modifiable matter of choice to a large degree. In the years to come, our patients will demand – and be willing to pay for – conservative, evidence-based advice and interventions to help them thrive in their golden years. By integrating current evidence in a patient-centered clinical framework, chiropractors can empower patients to enhance or maintain their physical capability, avoid decline and disability and maximize enjoyment and quality of life.

  • Outline our current state of knowledge on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and clinical management of two other common conditions seen in older patients: osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis
