This course is the final in-person installment of the DACO Program in Alaska! The Alaska Chiropractic Society, in partnership with the University of Bridgeport, launched the Diplomate, Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists (DACO) program in Alaska in 2018 with our first session at the ACS 2018 Convention on October 4, 2018, second session February 9+10, 2019, and third session March 9+10, 2019.  


This practical 14-hour presentation will begin with a discussion of the current evidence-based evaluation and management of common lumbar structural pathology.  The discussion will progress to review five commonly overlooked "functional" problems that delay NMS recovery.  In one way or another, these functional diagnoses contribute to many, if not all, of the lumbar structural diagnoses that chiropractors treat.  Participants will benefit from simple video demonstrations of all related tests, treatments, and low-tech home rehab exercises.  The presentation shares current knowledge about the classification of low back pain, involving a proven system to improve clinical outcomes.  

This practical presentation also reviews the essential skills for successfully managing the most common lower extremity complaints.  This workshop will examine current "best practices" for evaluating, treating, and directing simple in-office or home-based rehab.  Attendees will leave this class with greater understanding and confidence about how to manage the most common problems affecting the lumbar spine, hip, knee, foot, and ankle.  

Designed specifically for practicing chiropractors, University of Bridgeport’s Neuromusculoskeletal Post-Graduate Program and the related DACO Diplomate will give you the credentials necessary to become a valuable member of a primary healthcare team.  Even if earning a Diplomate isn’t your goal, you will receive 14 hours of CE credit in Alaska for each completed course in 2019.  Have your CCSP already? Earn your DACO faster! The ACO permits 50 hours of credit for CCSP.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be among the pioneers of this revolutionary change in delivering holistic healthcare by completing the DACO program in Alaska!

The initial 50 hours of on-site training will be followed by 250 hours of online education, which focuses on differential diagnosis, evaluation and management of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, especially acute and chronic pain conditions.
