Fort Wayne + Cox Technic = Fantastic!

5 instructors.
3 Cox Tables by Haven Innovation.
2 support staff.
14 gallons of coffee.
Few (if any) breaks.
32 hours of chiropractic continuing education.
What could that be?!?
A Cox Seminar!

Fort Wayne played host to the Cox® Technic Certification Course. In 4 days, attending physicians from as far away as Australia attended up to 32 hours of chiropractic continuing education.  Dr. James Cox, developer of Cox Technic, Dr. Ralph Kruse, Part I instructor, Dr. George Joachim  and Dr. Kurt Olding, certified physicians, instructors and and workshop instructors lead the weekend and proctored the certification exams. Dr. Ram Gudavalli (Palmer Research Center and principle investigator of flexion distraction projects) joined the weekend as well. He gave an update on flexion distraction research projects and a fabulous announcement that his latest paper on training physicians with a transducer was accepted on Sunday morning by the Journal of Chiropractic Education!


“Dr. Cox’s love of chiropractic and what he does in treating back pain is infectious – great experience, great seminar.”- evaluation comment

Dr. Kruse lead the weekend with the introductory and foundational background of Cox Technic, where it started, how it developed with research and gained respect in the clinic, and how it is applied. Drs. Joachim and Olding joined him in leading the introductory hands-on training.

The most beneficial part: “the hands-on part, hands down!” – evaluation comment

Dr. Cox then opened his section of the weekend with a recent article from the local newspaper about the staggering number of deaths due to pain medication in Indiana, setting up the role of chiropractic in pain management. Chiropractic is in its own “acre of diamonds”. Patients want non-drug alternatives.  He then stacked the deck further with peer-reviewed spine research articles that call for evidence-based, well-researched conservative treatment for back pain and neck pain as medical approaches aren’t always the answer.

“best seminar ever attended”  - evaluation comment

So the weekend included international doctors from Australia and Canada as well as a transplanted Iranian physician currently practicing in Canada who joined their US colleagues from California to NJ for a jam-packed weekend of academics, workshop hands-on, case presentations, some fireworks and fried cheese at Junk Food Alley (since the local 3 Rivers Festival was in full swing), and lots of coffee.

“very excellent and informative hands-on seminar which could be applied in your practice right after the course”  - evaluation comment 

Newly certified chiropractors are included in the referral directory (and now enjoy other perks like seminar discounts!). We look forward to their presenting cases at Part III courses!

Wonderfully, Haven Innovation provided 3 of The Cox8 Tables for the weekend's training. What a luxury! Don Wisner, president of Haven, joined the weekend.

Julie shared the online/offline program called Cox Technic Complete for Cox Technic flexion distraction physicians (co-developed by Cirrus ABS). It includes SEO-content, Cox® clinical forms and movies, automatically sent patient e-newsletters and seminars discount. Check out more information on this CTC program

There are is another combined Parts I and II courses in 2014 (in Fort Wayne, IN) on November 6-9, 2014. Doctors attending choose to take the complete course - all 32 hours in one trip, one exam, one place – while some came just for Part II to complete their training.  However many hours they attended, all appreciated the material and looked forward to practicing Monday morning with new information to help their patients like never before! Keep checking our chiropractic seminar schedule for seminar and workshop dates.

“Many ‘lightbulb’ moments this weekend.”  - evaluation comment

 See you at soon!
