BS2.01 Introduction to the Neuroplasticity Model

This class covers the major changes in neuroscience over the past 20 years and highlights the differences between basic science and clinical science.

This class covers the major changes in neuroscience over the past twenty years. It highlights the differences between basic science and clinical science, and why both types of research are important. It also reiterates what patient-focused, evidence-informed chiropractic care is.

It then focuses on neuroplasticity, what it is and why the past 30 years of neuroplasticity research are so important for chiropractors to understand. The class ends by looking at what role neuroplasticity plays in evidence-informed chiropractic care, with a look at the Rubicon Model of the Subluxation, and the model used in research publications. Finally, we cover how to communicate this contemporary model of the subluxation and the neurophysiological mechanisms of the chiropractic adjustments.

Important basis for understanding

I love how things were broken down and reflected how the current research supports a certain level of subluxation

How to explain the currently Subluxation model according to latest research

I loved everything and made notes as this information helps me better explains what happens in the body when we have subluxations and how these impact our body's ability to adapt to the environment. How to explain this to patients and other professionals. Understanding the difference between Clinical Science and Basic Science. The importance of Basic Science.

Great course on the brain's ability to adapt to sensory input and how neuroplasticity affects our patients.

Clear explanations about the science of neuroplasticity and how that relates to our practice/patient care.
