Course Title:  Sagittal Plane Spine Subluxation, Altered Sensori-Motor Control, and Autonomic Nervous System Function: Does True Corrective Care Improve Outcomes?

Instructor:  Dr. Deed Harrison

Course Objective: This course provides an integrated education for the Doctor of Chiropractic in the Science and Art of chiropractic analysis and management of patients with cervical and thoracic spine subluxations and altered sensorimotor control.  Biomechanical and neuro-physiological of sagittal plane alignment, sensorimotor control, and the autonomic nervous system will be reviewed and discussed. Emphasis will be placed on understanding analysis, patient deficits, and rehabilitation procedures for affected populations. An update-to-date review of research material will be presented supporting the utilization and efficacy of a variety of Chiropractic examination/documentation procedures, and corrective rehabilitation treatment techniques.


Sagittal Plane Subluxation and Cervical Spine Sensori-Motor Control

  • Sagittal plane models of the cervical lordosis and thoracic kyphosis;
  • Biomechanical cervical subluxation categories indicative of trauma;
  • Sensori-motor control definition and clinical evaluation methods utilized in populations with cervical spine subluxation: head repositioning accuracy, smooth pursuit motor control, center of gravity balance platforms.
  • Autonomic nervous system functional measurement as an outcome of corrective care: use and understanding of the sympathetic skin resistance response.
  • A focused literature review regarding the cervical lordosis, thoracic kyphosis, and anterior head translation and health outcomes.
  • Cervical and thoracic spine corrective care rehabilitation procedures and protocols: an overview of recent randomized trials with long-term follow up findings identifying improved sensori-motor control and autonomic nervous system function.
