  • The Impact of Diet on Sports Performance and Injury Recovery

    Presenter: Chad Larson, NMD, DC
    Original Date: November 05, 2016

    Both amateur and professional athletes strive to achieve peak performance, pushing their bodies, spirit and emotions to the nth degree. Diet and supplementation play a key role in supporting this goal in a healthy way. Sport injury recovery requires different dietary protocols and supplementation to speed healing and protect the body and brain from tissue degeneration. This presentation highlights key performance enhancing dietary protocols and guidance for improved recovery through diet and supplementation. Although this presentation centers on athletes, the principles of this lecture can be applied to all patients who want to remain healthy even though they have a family history of chronic disease, and for those who have had an injury or traumatic event.

  • Cardiovascular and EKG Pre-participation Screening

    Presenter: Jim Chesnutt, MD
    Original Date: November 05, 2016

    Dr. Chesnutt reviews the common elements of an overall sports physical with special emphasis on the cardiovascular components. He discusses the current state of evidence and recommendations around screening EKG for pre-participation and explain why recurrent recommendations do not support mass screenings of youth with EKGs.

  • Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Acupuncture for Athletic Injuries and Performance Optimization

    Presenter: Daniel Raider, LAc
    Original Date: November 06, 2016

    A relatively new field of study in Western Acupuncture, Orthopedics and Sports Medicine utilizes a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Motor Points to treat both and acute and chronic overuse injuries. Most musculoskeletal injuries show a strong imbalance between agonist and antagonist muscle groups which can produce undue stress on the joints, ligaments and muscles. This pattern creates simultaneous hypertonic and hypotonic muscles, significantly limiting function and which often presents as more obscure muscle pain and a pattern of tense, ropy or fibrous tissue can result which reduce the range and/or quality of joint movement. 

    This presentation explores some of the basic principles of Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Acupuncture as a treatment strategy for acute and chronic musculoskeletal issues. We will cover both the basic theory and application of acupuncture Motor Point acupuncture using specific techniques as well as a review of several clinical cases. Participants learn how to how to generally apply these principles in the clinical setting.

  • Regenerative Injection Therapy for Athletic Injuries

    Presenter: Ryan Minarik, ND
    Original Date: November 06, 2016

    Regenerative injections are a rapidly evolving therapy in the field of sports medicine and athletic injuries. With the potential for top level athletes to return to play a game or two earlier, or the "weekend warrior" athlete to just finally deal with a nagging injury that has been present for years, these therapies are intriguing. But the question from a mainstream media and science standpoint remains, do they work? An initial form of regenerative injections, prolotherapy, has been around since at least the 1950's and used successfully to help strengthen ligaments and stabilize joints. In the last decade or so, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections have arisen as a way for us to utilize the repair potential of our blood to help (re)stimulate healing. And even more recently, stem cells harvested from adipose or bone marrow are being injected to provide a potential "seed" for growth of new tissue.

    This presentation discusses how these therapies are applied for musculoskeletal injuries, a brief overview of how they may work and the science behind it, and clinical examples of how they are used to help demonstrate patient selection and the actual injection procedure.

  • Natural Foot Health and Foot Strengthening

    Presenter: Ray McClanahan, DPM
    Original Date: November 06, 2016

    Learn about natural human foot shape and the impacts of traditional footwear construction on foot strength. Traditional and conventional footwear is constructed on the false belief that human feet are innately flawed and must be protected. Dr. McClanahan has challenged this standard, exposing the physiological changes that occur when a foot is immobilized and cushioned. This presentation explores the features of conventional footwear, and how footwear support leads to muscles atrophy and foot dysfunction. Learn techniques to align and strengthen your feet, as well as methods to evaluate footwear for yourself and your clients.

  • Carbohydrate Chemistry for Athletes

    Presenter: Lowell Greib, ND, MSc, CISSN
    Original Date: November 06, 2016

    Performance in sport is reliant upon the effective delivery and utilization of fuel substrates to meet metabolic demand. The need for effective carbohydrate and muscle glycogen metabolism is undeniable when high performance is required. With a better understanding of carbohydrate metabolism, a clinician is positioned to make efficacious recommendations that meet the carbohydrate requirements of their athletes. Daily carbohydrate fueling strategies that can modulate muscle glycogen, as well as sport specific (power and endurance sport) fuelling requirements are discussed.
