For the benefit of your patients, your career, your business and yourself, you continue to learn. There will always be more for
DCs to learn, and sometimes the question is about deciding what to learn than anything else. The latest trends and newest
gadgets can be distracting, but you want to acquire knowledge that will benefit your patients and your chiropractic practice
Instrument adjusting has been studied, tested, and found to be an effective treatment that helps patients and doctors. Many
vendors and colleges have paired up to offer continuing education credits for doctors who get training in various instrument
adjusting methods. There are several benefits for DCs:
If you learn best in person, there are seminars that may appeal to you. If you don’t have time to travel to a
seminar, you may choose to register for online training. Some campuses offer inperson
courses. Depending on your needs and circumstances, you can choose the training delivery method best suited to your life.
Learning an instrument adjusting method means that you will be able to add a service to your practice. Your patients will directly benefit from what you learn. It is an investment in yourself and in your practice.
One of the greatest benefits of instrument adjusting is the benefit to the chiropractor. Your work demands a physical price, but that price is lower when you use tools to adjust patients. You will be able to see more patients using the same amount or less of your physical energies.
Training is usually divided into three levels, so you can choose the level that best suits your personal situation. In other words, a doctor with years of experience will not end up in a seminar learning basics, and a new graduate will not be plunged into a course too advanced.
Instrument adjusting has advanced to the point that you can choose to learn methods for adjusting extremities, the spine, and for adjusting adults and children. The list of specific courses and seminars is long and varied! Be sure to check with your seminar providers if you have any questions regarding your continuing education credits.
