When Life West refers to the Art of chiropractic, as in the theme of the upcoming conference The WAVE, “The Science, Philosophy and Art of Chiropractic: The Salutogenic Model,” Art covers the spectrum of chiropractic technique. A variety of techniques are taught at Life West’s San Francisco Bay Area campus, and those who attend The WAVE in August will get to explore this intersection of science and application with experts in technique and human physiology.
This year’s speakers on the art of chiropractic, or technique, include the following:
Ted Carrick, DC, PhD, MS-HPEd: This professor of neurology and senior research fellow at the Bedfordshire Centre for Mental Health Research in the U.K. will talk about the neurological results of chiropractic care and how ongoing chiropractic care promotes health in his talk, “Technique and Neurology for the Practicing Chiropractor.”
Scott Rosa, DC: This developer of a patented advanced-trauma imaging procedure will share his latest research into neuro-degenerative brain disease, concussion, and other traumatic brain issues and discuss how the chiropractic adjustment can affect health outcomes in his talk on “Atlas Orthogonal Adjusting Procedures.”
Monika Buerger, DC: A star pediatric chiropractor and a graduate of Life West, Dr. Buerger will talk about the potentially far-reaching neurophysiological and neuropsychiatric consequences of autonomic dysregulation due to subluxations and the effect of chiropractic technique on these subluxations. She is a pioneer in the chiropractic profession when it comes to working with children that have neurosensory and neurodevelopmental disorders. Her talk is on “Epigenetic Effects of Adjusting the Subluxation: The Physical and Mental Health Consequences.”
Jeff Scholten, DC: Attendees will gain a deeper understanding about adjusting the craniocervical junction from Dr. Scholten, who is a published clinical researcher, has served as president of the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA), president and board member of the Upper Cervical Council under the International Chiropractors Association (ICA), and board member of the Upper Cervical Research Foundation. His topic at The WAVE is “Point Break: Locus of Control Concepts in Adjusting the Craniocervical Junction.”
Marty Rosen, DC: Another graduate of Life West, Dr. Rosen is an experienced presenter on chiropractic technique, research and evidence-based protocols. Attendees will learn how to balance the foundation of chiropractic technique and produce results by developing a reliable neurological methodology and monitoring protocol to determine the improvement in a patient’s state of well-being. His talk is called “Art, Science and Philosophy of Chiropractic–Balancing the Triad through Technique.”
Brad Glowaki, DC: As someone who uses his expertise to help corporations institute wellness programs, Dr. Glowaki has perfected strategies to improve the health of a community through chiropractic technique. His topic at The WAVE is “Salutogenesis, Chiropractic Technique, and Global Well-Being: How the chiropractic adjustment and care represents the Salutogenic care model.”
