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.
