One of Life Chiropractic College West’s exciting, newly hired faculty members will take the stage at The WAVE. Jeff Scholten, DC, came on board earlier this year, and he’ll be sharing his expertise with conference attendees in Oakland this August.
Dr. Scholten most recently led a class on the diagnosis and management of spinal disorders during the recently-completed Spring quarter at Life West. His stints as both president of the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) and board member of the International Chiropractors Association’s Council on Upper Cervical Care and the Upper Cervical Research Foundation make him one of North America’s most respected voices in upper cervical care.
Dr. Scholten also serves as the clinic director and owner at the Vital Posture Clinic, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He has been in private practice for nearly two decades, and he is the only Canadian named as a Fellow in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures.
Those attending Dr. Scholten’s speech are eligible for one half-hour CE credit. Dr. Scholten’s topic is “Point Break: Locus of Control Concepts in Adjusting the Craniocervical Junction.” Attendees will learn more about imaging modalities available to complete the comprehensive examination of the complex patient and structural considerations for clinicians adjusting the craniocervical junction.
Additionally, Dr. Scholten will discuss the assessment of patients during intake and how attendees can recognize where to intervene. His insights into technique and the examination of patients make him a perfect fit for this year’s WAVE conference, which is based around the theme, The Science, Philosophy and Art of Chiropractic: The Salutogenic Model.
The WAVE is scheduled for Aug. 16-18 at the Oakland Marriott City Center in Oakland, California. Register for The WAVE 2019 at lifewestwave.com.
