Honors Course 2024 - San Juan on the Beach!


Dr. James Cox with Dr. George Joachim will lead 12 hours of collegial discussion regarding the biomechanics, diagnosis, and treatment of spine pain conditions and their related extremity pain issues: lumbar, cervical, thoracic, lumbar radiculopathy/sciatica, cervical radiculopathy/arm pain, spinal stenosis, post-surgical/persistent spine pain syndrome/FBSS, spinal gout, etc. 
The clinical application of Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction Decompression (CTFDD) will be highlighted; the translation of spinal research findings to clinical application will be featured.   
Attendees are invited and encouraged to present a case! These bring lots of discussion! Just 10 minutes: history, exam, imaging, diagnosis, treatment plan, outcomes/questions. Julie will help put it together if needed! Our last beachy-Honors Course had 16 presenters (and a few more, who once there, wished they'd planned to present)! It's such an amazing experience! Read/See the presentations from Honors 2023!
"An absolute must for chiropractors genuinely interested in not only understanding the evidence behind the most effective way to treat complex cases, but also the hands-on experience to confidently and effectively treat complex cases." – Christiana Crawford DC
