Improving Patient Care – Seminars at Hosmer Chiropractic Health for Chiropractors

By: Dr. Seth Hosmer, DC

We are pleased to be offering a series of Chiropractic Adjusting Seminars here at Hosmer Chiropractic Health this summer.  One of the best investments you can make in your practice is to improve your ability to accurately diagnose and treat patients.  These classes will teach you skills that will improve your patient outcomes, and make practicing Chiropractic more rewarding.  Don't you owe it to your patients to be the best Doctor you can be?

How are your adjusting skills?  Are you confident that you are providing the right treatment to restore function?  These seminars will teach you to evaluate biomechanics of joints and soft tissues to accurately determine which joint needs to be adjusted, and what specific adjustment will help the patient.

How do you feel at the end of a busy day or busy week?  Are you wearing out your shoulders, hands and spine?  These seminars will teach you to provide an adjustment that is safe for your body, and comfortable for the patient.

From Dr. Seth Hosmer:

"I have taken both the Spine and Extremity Seminars on 5 previous occasions, and find that each immediately improve my ability to effectively diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions of all types.  Specific things that have helped me with my patients include:

  • Knowing which joints need to be adjusted and in which direction – it is not enough to simply make something "pop" where it hurts, or do watever adjustment that you are good at. The patient needs a specific adjustment, and I am confident knowing I can provide that.
  • Easy Adjustments – comfortable for me, comfortable and effective for the patient.
  • Head-To-Toe proficiency – if there are areas of the body you are not able to fully examine or treat, there are going to be patients that you cannot help.
  • More Fun in Practice – Treating patients is more rewarding for the Doctor when you are confident in your ability and technique; you'll have more fun as you treat your patients."
