On July 17, Life Chiropractic College West’s Continuing Education (CE) program is announcing that Life West is now working with Titleist Performance Institute (golf), OnBaseU and RacquetFit to deliver sponsored seminars that, for the first time, allow chiropractors to earn their CE hours through these seminars.
Laurie Isenberg, director of the Life West CE program, says the partnership is a fantastic addition to the offerings Life West has for chiropractors. Certification has been available to other health care professionals, but earning continuing education credit is new for chiropractors, although they could still take the seminars without earning credit. “Chiropractors should be getting this certification too,” she said. “This allows chiropractors to become specialists in these areas.”
Chiropractors, Isenberg said, can become specialists in treating golfers, baseball and softball players, and tennis players if they understand intimately what’s going on with the body when a player swings a club, a bat or a racquet, what makes a player prone to injury or what is blocking a better performance, and how to help create a better athlete with the appropriate treatment or adjustment.
The in-person seminars through Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), RacquetFit and OnBaseU are offered all over the world. They cover the physiology of particular movements in golf, racquet sports such as tennis, and softball and baseball.
Every one of these courses has a chiropractor as an instructor, Isenberg said, so the seminars are taught from a chiropractic mindset.
