Chiropractic Continuing Education is a very important part of every professional's life. Only the fool thinks he knows it all, and the old dog too long in the tooth to learn new tricks. Alas that is already true of some at 30.
"I'm still learning."
(said when he was 85)
If that was true for arguably the most famous artist, sculptor and architect the world has ever known should we do any less? (Seen the dome of St Peters in Rome? The Sistine Chapel? La Pieta? If continuing education was good for Michaelangelo at 85, then ...)
Rome is our favourite city in Europe. Sorry Paris, Amsterdam, London! Just a visit to see the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, Michaelangelo's Creation is worth a visit to the ends of the Earth.
This looks to be a fantastic experience. THREE days with Drs Larry Bell and Mike Murray in one of the finest cities in the world. What more do you want?
FICS have a wonderful formula for teaching us stuff that is immediately relevant on Monday morning.
When? June 2010. Read more about the FICS seminar in LAUSANNE, Switzerland ...
"It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot, irreverence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it."

Chiropractic is making such great strides that, s/he who pretends that he has no need to learn further, will very quickly fall behind in the quality of care that he can provide.
When I think how much I have learnt about the jaw, sports injuries, the sacrum, the Epley Maneuver for vertigo, and much much more since graduation, I am saddened that some participate in continuing education with such reluctance and bad grace.
Best of all is when you can fulfil your needs for chiropractic education, and have a ball at the same time. Always take a few extra days to see Amsterdam, or London ...

Two short courses are on offer at Chiropractic Continuing Education, free of charge, to enable the doctor of chiropractic diagnose and treat Vertigo more effectively. Research done in the UK confirms what many of us already know: the dizzy patient is the one most likely to react badly to an upper cervical adjustment. Here, we provide you with an alternative, simple and effective. And proven.
"If a teacher is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind."

Many insurance companies now only pay for physical therapists to provide a chiropractic adjustment; that's in the face of powerful research proving that inclusion of DCs to perform their own technique would save them a good deal of money. One has to conclude that political medicine has gone off on another tack to contain our profession.
It's being successful with some doctors of chiropractic quitting. Others become involved in some dodgy practices, like demanding that patients sign up for a whole year of treatment in advance, in order to stay in business.
In recessionary times, the going is tough when the insurance won't pay.
Is the day approaching for a new Wilk versus the AMA and the insurance companies?
The chiropractic profession has tried hard to stay on the moral high ground; those who stoop to unscrupulous practices need to be exposed and disciplined if we are not to stoop to the low blows that medicine has often resorted to contain and eliminate us.
