RECORDED Webinar - Neuroanatomy of the Spine 3 - is Ready!

As one attendee so aptly and observantly put it, "This neuroanatomy 3 should be broken down into part 3 and 4. Part three being either Neuro-Pharmacology or Neuro-Chemical-Mediators or (Moderators).The last part about Modic and injections and foraminal content should be part of another neuroanatomy. All of the information is outstanding." But you get it all in this one recording. 
And another attendee shared that "Dr. Cox has a great way of presenting researched based material as well as educating on complex subjects in a way that is clinically relevant and easy to understand."
So, in this third recorded webinar on the neuroanatomy of the spine with emphasis on chiropractic practice, Dr. James Cox discusses the following topics and their clinical application to patient care and chiropractic management:
1. Definition and clinical significance of the diagnostic terms radiculopathy, radiculitis, peripheral neuropathy, somatic pain, radicular pain, scleratogenous pain
2. The intervertebral disc as a pain generator
3. Osmosis changes within the intervertebral disc with degeneration
4. Diagnostic accuracy of physical, orthopedic, neurological examination for diagnosis of stenosis and disc herniation
5. Complex regional pain syndrome in unresolved nerve compression and chemical inflammation
6. Sympathetic nervous system reaction to nerve irritation within the disc and dorsal root ganglion
7. Modic disc changes correlated with chemical inflammation of the disc and dorsal root ganglion
8. Define limbic system, pyramidal system, reticular formation, basal ganglion. The relationship with the thalamus and A and C fiber stimulation in the dorsal root ganglion and long tract afferent conduction to the thalamus and pyramidal system
9. Pain modulation within the dorsal root ganglion
10. Ligand types and function effect on receptors at the cellular level. The orchestration of ligands and receptors maintains human well being
11. Serotonin, dopamine, gama aminobutyric acid, endorphine, norephinephrine,  nitric acid, acetylcholine - production and emotional effect production and emotional effect. Pert’s molecules of emotion concept.
12. Immune system, proprioception, nociception, neuropraxia, axonotmesis, neurotmesis affect and effect of the nervous system
13. Thalamus: long tract conduction, autonomic input, cranial nerve and basal ganglion input, memory and emotion with pyramidal cortical interpretation, corticospinal tract formation, and pain modulation
14. Summary of the mechanical and chemical origins and consequences on the spinal cord, dorsal root ganglion and nerve roots with correlation with principles of chiropractic spinal manipulation neurophysiological correction
Usually just an hour, this recording goes 1 hour and 42 minutes, with a nice summary at the end to apply to your back pain speciality practice.
