    CLINICAL GROUND ROUNDS

    COURTENAY, BRITISH COLUMBIA     AUGUST 9-10, 2019 


    Dr. Cockwill is a 1985 graduate of CMCC in Toronto Canada. He has been practicing NUCCA for the past 34 years. He was a member of NUCCA from 1983-2000 and was a board member from 1994-2000. He was also a member of the Academy of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Organizations (AUCCO) since 1996 and served as President of the AUCCO for six years

    Dr. Cockwill is a designer and manufacturer of Upper Cervical tools and equipment and he will be sharing and demonstrating his clinical procedures that he has used in his very successful practice.

    He practices in one of the most beautiful locations in Canada and encourages you to bring your spouse as his lovely wife Cathy will be happy to entertain spouses while the doctors are busy. He is planning a seafood dinner on the Saturday night and can arrange a tour of the Comox valley.

    The Clinical Grand Rounds will include interesting and unique live cases or case reports that the doctor will present and take you through their assessment and outcomes. They will share their unique protocols, thought processes and clinical pearls from their experience.

    The format is similar to what you will or have experienced in the Diplomat program: a weekend presentation at the office of the presenter.  These are small group presentations allowing for advanced discussions.  Space is limited and enrollment is limited to ten (10) Doctors.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES 

    NEUROLOGY I:

    1)    What to think about for the patient who will not hold an adjustment despite all proper assessment and treatment from an upper cervical standpoint?
    2)    What to think about for the patient that is holding but is still symptomatic?
    3)    From an embroyological and neurological perspective why does upper cervical care work?
    4)    Gain a complete understanding of the neuroanatomy, function, and connections to the upper cervical spine and rest of the body.
    5)    Understand important vascular structures of the brainstem and brain as well as the importance of always thinking about the autonomic nervous system.
    6)    Understanding neuromuscular physiology and the central control systems and consequences to changing NM physiology.
    7)    Recognition of real world clinical connections between neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and the patient.

    3)    Understanding of CCJ misalignment as a primary or secondary problem.
    4)    What are the causes and consequences of increased and decreased CSF pressure.
    5)    Understand the connection between CCJ, Autonomic nervous system, and clinical presentations.
    6)    Understanding the role of CCJ in concussion, the physiology, management, and referral for complicated concussion cases.

    a.     X-ray Physics
    b.     Radiographic Technique and its Effects
    c.     Troubleshooting Radiographs
    d.     Digital Radiography

    Understand the working concepts of x-ray physics to facilitate dynamic interaction of the x-ray machine and operator, ensuring ability to troubleshoot both film and digital x-ray units and ability to reliably create diagnostic quality images.

    3.     Advanced Imaging of the Cervical spine (2 hours)
    a.     CT
    b.     MRI

    Understand the utility of cross sectional imaging (CT and MRI) in the diagnostic workup of chiropractic patients for both common and less well-known conditions of the head and neck.

    4.     Whiplash Injury (2 hours)
    a.     Whiplash Associated Disorder
    b.     Ligamentous Structures of the Upper Cervical Spine

    Recognize the ligamentous structures of the upper cervical spine on MRI imaging, and understand the mechanism of whiplash associated injuries and their effects on the cervical spine.

    5.     Chiari Malformations (1 hour)

    Describe the various types of Chiari malformations and identify relevant anatomy on upright and recumbent MR imaging studies.
