Lecture Overview

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. The course will feature interactive sessions, case studies, and practical demonstrations, ensuring that attendees leave with actionable knowledge and skills to apply in their own practices.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand Comprehensive Trauma Management: Gain a detailed understanding of the latest methodologies in managing traumatic injuries, focusing on structural, metabolic, and neurological aspects.
  • Integrate Patient-Specific Approaches of Care: Learn how to incorporate holistic and integrative strategies into trauma care, including nutrition, lifestyle modifications, and integrative therapies.
  • Apply Advanced Pain Management Techniques: Develop skills in advanced pain management techniques, understanding their role in patient recovery and long-term well-being.
  • Recognize the Role of Rehabilitation: Understand the importance of rehabilitation in the healing process and learn how to design effective rehabilitation programs for patients with traumatic structural and neurological injuries.
  • Promote Healthy Aging and Longevity: Explore the intersection of trauma care with healthy aging strategies, understanding how to help patients maintain health and vitality throughout the recovery process and into later life.
  • Navigate Patient-Centered Care: Enhance skills in providing patient-centered care, focusing on individualized treatment plans that cater to the unique needs of each patient.

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.

Dr. Reis believes the connection between neurological function and nutritional status is essential to understanding how to fully maximize brain function, which is why he takes a multifaceted approach to improve his patient’s brain health and wellness.

He leverages the building of trusting relationships for the benefit of the patient and is willing to take the extra step(s) needed to ensure the highest quality of patient satisfaction for greater clinical outcomes. As such, he recognizes the importance of patient education, which is why he loves teaching his patients about their overall health and wellness to provide the necessary knowledge to be able to take control of their health when away from the office.

In his spare time, he enjoys playing lead/rhythm guitar in his band “The Night Caps”. He also enjoys participating in competitive recreational sports and spending time with his amazing family (and dog, Dolly).
