Co-credentialed through the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education), Cleveland University – Kansas City and the Academy of Chiropractic, Long Island, New York, 2024

 

MRI Interpretation Review Qualified, Recognized by Cleveland University-Kansas City, Chiropractic and Health Sciences with courses recognized by the ACCGME in conjunction with the State University of New York at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Qualification language approved by the American Chiropractic College of Radiology (ACCR) and the American Chiropractic Board of Radiology (ACBR)

 

Primary Spine Care Qualified, This qualification includes graduate chiropractic education in healthy and traumatically altered spinal morphology inclusive of osseous, connective tissue and neurological structure, function and pathology. This certifies you are qualified in assessing predictive models in spinal biomechanics and devising engineering paradigms for treatment plans to maximize spinal homeostasis in an evidenced based conclusion. In addition, this qualification acknowledges your expertise in triaging the injured and coordinating collaborative care from the trauma through conclusion of rehabilitation, Academy of Chiropractic Post-Doctoral Division, Cleveland University-Kansas City, College of Chiropractic, Long Island NY, 2024

 

Trauma Qualified - Managing trauma patients requires an advanced skill-set related to the injured. Patients in car crashes, on-the-job injuries, sports, and slip and fall injuries typically require advanced spinal and connective tissue pathology training. To fully understand these types of injuries, an in-depth understanding of the physiology of each region and tissue is necessary to create an accurate diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan. Many of these cases also require collaboration with medical specialists, and this training gives you the tools of a peer in the triage process.
