This seminar is a comprehensive 2-day event that will explore the multifaceted aspects of managing traumatic injuries and fostering healthy aging and longevity in clinical practice. This seminar will provide an in-depth look into the latest advancements and methodologies for addressing traumatic injuries, with a special focus on metabolic, cognitive, and neurological health. We will explore innovative approaches and therapies that go beyond traditional methods, highlighting the importance of holistic and integrative approaches in patient care.

The curriculum will integrate the principles of rehabilitation, pain management, and preventative strategies, emphasizing the role of nutrition, lifestyle, and cutting-edge therapeutic techniques like low-level laser in promoting recovery and long-term well-being. This workshop aims to bridge the gap between conventional medical approaches and integrative therapies, offering participants a comprehensive understanding of how to enhance patient outcomes in both acute and chronic scenarios.

Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the complexities surrounding traumatic injuries, the importance of nutrition and metabolic health, and the latest strategies for promoting longevity and healthy aging.

About Dr. Reis

Dr. Erik Reis is a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine and Board-Certified Chiropractic Neurologist at The Neural Connection. He received his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University, graduating with magna cum laude honors, and graduated from the University of Minnesota with his Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology/Exercise Science, with an emphasis in human motor performance in both athletic and therapeutic settings.

Dr. Reis currently holds a diplomate in functional neurology from the American Chiropractic Neurology Board and has completed thousands of hours of additional post-graduate coursework utilizing clinical applications and therapeutic interventions in the neurological and nutritional rehabilitation of traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and vestibular disorders through the Carrick Institute of Clinical Neuroscience.

At The Neural Connection, his practice primarily focuses on treating complex neurological disorders that range from traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s), dysautonomia, sport-related concussions, vestibular-related disorders (Vertigo/Dizziness), complex regional pain syndromes (CRPS), headaches/migraines, and chronic pain syndromes. His treatments focus on individualized neurological rehabilitation protocols focused on increasing function through sensorimotor training and neuro-orthopedic exercises.

He manages pain and dysfunctional movement by utilizing corrective exercises, gait-retaining protocols and individualized neuromuscular training programs fit for the specific needs of his patients. He also utilizes comprehensive nutritional and metabolic testing to address potentially limiting dysfunctions of the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems.

About the Event:

With a greater understanding of how the nervous system works and responds to our environment, we can now improve patient outcomes by making predictable changes to pain, postural integrity, balance and functional movement.

Dr. Jensen will cover neuroplasticity and its application to chiropractic, the adaptive nervous system, and the physiology of stress. He will also address neuro biomechanical efficiency including gait and foot assessment, posture evaluation, functional movement assessment, movement disorders, and soft tissue treatment.

 

About Dr. Jensen:

Dr Brian Jensen was introduced to Chiropractic at age 15 when he received treatment for sports injuries. Based on the success of that treatment, he chose to attend Palmer Chiropractic College where he graduated in 1987. Dr Jensen’s personal experience with Chiropractic care has led him over the past 30 years to develop strategies for staying healthy, not merely addressing temporary aches and pains. “Staying healthy is a proactive process, doing the right things as part of a healthy life style. ” With that in mind, Dr Jensen has incorporated a combination of the latest technological advances with simple, common sense tools that assist patients in achieving and maintaining their health goals.

Dr. Jensen served as the Associate Director of Education and Research at Foot Levelers Inc., between 2006 and 2010 and is currently in full time practice in Roanoke VA. He has shared his experience in continuing education seminars over the past 15 years in the US and abroad.

Help us fight for better insurance coverage of chiropractic!

We hear from chiropractors often that they have patients who, due to insurance limitations, are unable to continue receiving the care that helps their chronic pain or must ration visits at the cost of their health. HB 303 would require insurers to cover a minimum of 20 chiropractic visits per year, along with other nonpharmacological pain management services like physical therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture. On Wednesday, NHCA Board members Dr. Daniel Parent and Dr. James Pamplin provided verbal testimony to the House Commerce and Consumer Affairs Committee in support of this legislation. We want to thank all of the New Hampshire DCs who have taken the time to submit written testimony!

If you have not had a chance to show your support yet, there is still time to contact the committee before its members vote to decide whether this bill will move forward. To send your testimony to the full committee, email HouseCommerceCommittee@leg.state.nh.us. You can use

NHCA Legislative Chair Mark Stagnone, DC testifies in front of the House Commerce and Consumer Affairs Committee in support of HB 247 in February 2022. 

Over the past year, the NHCA has done work on behalf of the profession that we’re proud of. The association:

  • Advertised chiropractic’s “hands-on, drug free approach to healthcare in a safe environment” on NHPR and its podcasts from March to August, directing listeners to our member map.
  • Allied with a multi-disciplinary group of healthcare organizations to advocate for HB 247, a bill that would ensure adequate chiropractic coverage for patients who would otherwise be prescribed opioids for acute or chronic pain.
  • Sent our board members to Concord to testify in support of HB 1245, a bill that would address unfair chiropractic copayment practices by insurance companies.
  • Held a virtual town hall event open to all NH chiropractors to collect information on the issues impacting the profession throughout the state.
  • Presented continuing education in collaboration with the ACA Pediatrics Council.
  • Lobbied New Hampshire’s congressional delegation to support the Chiropractic Medicare Coverage Modernization Act, which would update Medicare rules to allow coverage for our usual scope of services, including exams. That means better chiropractic coverage for over 300,000 Granite Staters!
  • Hired our first Association Manager to ensure that we are consistently and reliably meeting the needs of New Hampshire chiropractors.

This year, we continue to advocate on legislation impacting the profession and plan exciting continuing education opportunities, both virtual and in-person. We are gathering information from New Hampshire chiropractors to address Anthem payment delays, and anticipate that the NHCA will be represented as a stakeholder in a state-commissioned study on minimum chiropractic insurance coverage by commercial insurance plans.

This work is made possible by our members across the state. To continue and expand our efforts, we need your support.
