Course Details

The purpose of this MPI lecture and hands-on workshop is to provide clinical insight into treating pregnant, postpartum, and pediatric patients as a chiropractor. It will provide attendees with a basic understanding of contraindications to care, management of common conditions, adjustive techniques, rehab exercises for pregnancy and postpartum, and nutritional recommendations for these special populations.

By the end of the seminar attendees will be able to:

  • Identify red flags, contraindications, and reasons for referral in pediatric and pregnant patients
  • Apply modifications to adjusting and rehab techniques to accommodate pregnant, postpartum, and pediatric patients
  • Make basic nutritional recommendations for pediatric and pregnant patients
  • Appreciate the role chiropractic physicians play in the treatment of pregnant, postpartum, and pediatric patients
