Techniques Old and New

September 03, 2008
  The World Federation of Chiropractic's (WFC) 10th Biennial Congress - hosted by the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) - is shaping up to be an outstanding program with strong content on each of the science, philosophy and art of chiropractic. 

Adopting a format that has proved successful at recent WFC congresses, speakers will provide a 15 minute overview of each technique system – its history, methods, role and supporting research – in two morning lecture sessions on technique. They will then provide 90 minute afternoon workshops demonstrating these techniques. Registrants are free to choose which technique workshops they wish to attend while at the meeting. 

Some techniques feature traditional adjustment, others established and emerging soft-tissue techniques, and speakers include:

  • David Byfield, DC on Diversified for older and osteoporotic patients
  • Christopher Colloca, DC on instrument adjusting
  • Robert Goodman, DC of NUCCA on upper cervical specific technique
  • Scott Walker, DC on Neuroemotional Technique (NET)
  • Michael Leahy, DC on Active Release Technique (ART)
  • Fred Carrick, DC on Chiropractic Neurology
  • Tom Hyde, DC on Graston technique

Numerous other practical workshops registrants may choose during the meeting cover areas such as sports chiropractic (Grand Rounds), current best methods of measuring outcomes in practice (Mior), radiology (Grenier), low-tech rehab (Kirkwood and Kazemi), seniors’ quality of life (Gleberzon and Amy Freedman, MD) and DC-MD inter-referral issues and protocols (Francis Fontaine, DC MD).
