Talk to me about – Differentiation of Lumbar Disc Pathologies

There are 5 different types of disc pathologies that are seen in the clinic.

Learn how to differentiate these quickly and how you treat each one differently, which category should get an immediate injection, and even when they are more likely to require surgery.

Talk to me about – Differentiation of Cervical Disc Pathologies

Disc pathologies within the cervical spine have a variety of ways they can present in the clinic which can cause some confusion for the clinician.

However, spend 30 minutes with a mentor to obtain a better understanding of how each disc pathology presents and how to navigate through each case. You will also learn how to treat each pathology and when they may benefit from an injection and/or surgical consult.

Talk to me about – Innovative ways to hydrate the intervertebral disc and preserve disc health

As people age, people shrink, mainly due to decreased intervertebral spaces.  Such spinal shrinkage can lead to spinal and/or foraminal stenosis, which in turn can lead to pain and difficulties standing and walking.

I can provide you with simple strategies to help people maintain disc health through exercises and positions and lifetime changes.
