  • Exercise Physiology + the Art and Science of Training for Distance Running

    Presenter: Rick Lovett, PhD, JD
    Original Date: November 6, 2015

    This presentation provides an overview of how science has influenced distance runners’ training, with a particular eye to marathon training. Demonstrations on typical coach/athlete interactions are given, as well as the thought and dialogue that goes into an active training plan. Dr. Rick showcases 3-4 of his elite runners, presenting each one as a living case study.

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging Protocols and Current Practice for Spinal Injuries

    Presenter: Tyrone Wei, DC, DACBR
    Original Date: November 7, 2015

    This lecture is intended to familiarize the physician in clinical practice of spinal injuries with a brief review of basic MRI principles including typical MR protocols. Wei presents an overview of MRI spinal anatomy with discussion of the use of multiplanar MR sequences in comparison to x-ray imaging and followed by a more detailed discussion on central canal and neural foraminal pathology as well as bone marrow pathology. Attendees learn a basic understanding of MRI principles as well as be able to recognize MRI spinal anatomy in typical MR sequences. Attendees also learn the appearance of conditions resulting in central canal and neural foraminal pathology and bone marrow pathology.

  • Biochemical Interventions to Minimize Muscular Fatigue in the Athlete

    Presenter: Lowell Greib, ND, MSc, CISSN
    Original Date: November 7, 2015

    Over the last several decades, an abundance of literature has been disseminated on the complex mechanisms that are part of muscular fatigue as it relates to sport and athletic performance. Add to these processes, theory developed on fatigue process and it becomes clear that muscular fatigue through participation in sport is much more than a simple accumulation of ‘lactic acid’. Further, biochemical and nutritional science has paved the way to allowed astute clinicians to make sound recommendations on how muscular fatigue can be minimized with dietary and supplemental interventions. This lecture and lab provide the opportunity to best understand the biochemistry of muscular fatigue and the complexity of the mechanisms that lead to performance decline.

  • Physical Pain and Dysfunction as a Manifestation of Emotional and Energetic Dysfunction

    Presenter: Justin Levy, LAc
    Original Date: November 7, 2015

    Recurring injuries and chronic disease are often a sign of blocked energetic flow. With the abdomen, spine and nervous system acting as gateways between the physical and emotional/energetic bodies, it is sometimes necessary to address these organs first in order to treat extremities. By recognizing that posture and gait as expressions of an individual’s lifetime of experiences, emotions, trauma, etc., we can “track” or learn to see pain and dysfunction as an imprint of previous actions or protective mechanisms. These individual patterns of dysfunction or harmony are then projected onto the body. This presentation addresses how we can heal the body by accessing one’s internal energy source, as well as certain practices of yoga anatomy and how it corresponds to the physical body.

  • Regenerative Injection Therapy in Sports Medicine: Prolotherapy, PRP or Stem Cells - Where, When and Why?

    Presenter: Tyna Moore, ND, DC
    Original Date: November 7, 2015

    Regenerative Injection Therapy is a family of therapies that encompass Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma and Adult Stem Cell Therapies. These therapies and their delivery techniques vary from one another in several ways, although most doctors and patients are unaware of these differences. The differences in delivery from one practitioner to the next can also vary greatly. This presentation addresses the differences in each of these treatments, how they work separately and in combination with one another, how they complement manual therapies and rehab, and why they are an effective treatment in the Sports Medicine community.

  • Key Principles to Functional Rehabilitation

    Presenter: Justin Dean, DC
    Original Date: November 8, 2015

    Attendees learn what it means to establish foundational principles in Functional Rehabilitation from prominent schools of thought around the world. Dean covers how changes in pain and function should occur in moments rather than weeks. Focus is also made on more common injuries and treatment protocols such as low back pain, sciatica, irregular gait, ankle sprains, hip, knee and shoulder pain. Case studies are presented with associated Q&A.

  • Lab: Applying Key Principles in Practice for Fast Results

    Presenter: Justin Dean, DC
    Original Date: November 8, 2015

    This workshop focuses on how to implement rehabilitation protocols quickly and efficiently in a clinical setting. Exercises are demonstrated, with discussion of associated conditions, protocols and contraindications. Emphasis is made on integrating these exercises into the regular training plans of injured or recovering athletes with a focus on preventative care.

  • Myofascial Dysfunction and Nerve Constriction in Chronic Pain and Sports Injuries - Integrating Dry Needling and Perineural Injection Techniques as Adjunctive Treatment Protocols

    Presenter: Ryan Minarik, ND, LAc
    Original Date: November 8, 2015

    This lecture explores the mechanism of sensory nerve and myofascial dysfunction and the impacts on pain and recovery. Dr. Minarik also explores how certain targeted acupuncture needling and dextrose injection procedures can address these dysfunctions, often providing immediate pain relief, or allowing concomitant therapies to work more effectively. This lecture includes multiple case examples of how therapies are utilized.
