3rd Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures Class to Start in 2019
Here is what other DC's have said about their experience in the program:
"How you do one thing is how you do everything. Attention to detail has increased 10 times. I now look at every indicator possible when assessing subluxation. I now review MRIs on a regular basis. I am more observant of other listing systems and/or factors when deciding how best to adjust my patients. I am communicating differently with my patient and with other healthcare providers. I am more confident, more certain and more knowledgeable than I have ever been."
– Ian Bulow, DC, DCCJP, Pennsylvania
"The upper cervical diplomate program is by far the best investment I have made. As a younger Doc in the field, it put my learning curve in fast-forward. The comprehension of the craniocervical junction, advanced imaging, cerebrospinal fluid, trauma and how to assess misalignment and provide a specific correction has been invaluable to helping people get better faster and stay better longer. It has distinguished my practice as the "go to" for neurosurgeons, primary care doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and even other chiropractors. Worth every ounce of time, energy, travel and every penny I put towards the program."
– Rachae Bell DC, DCCJP, Washington
