Event Description:

 Agenda at a glance:

  • It is currently estimated that Forward Head Posture (FHP) occurs in 90% of the U.S. adult population and with our increasing use of hand-held digital devices FHP (also known as “tech-neck”) is beginning to affect children at an alarming rate.
  • Thanks in large part to the national media, the general public is not only becoming aware of this "tech-neck" epidemic but is also looking for a solution.
  • Did You Know – FHP is a major contributing factor in the most common conditions treated in your clinical practice today?
  • Acute symptoms caused by FHP can be temporarily relieved with traditional chiropractic manipulative therapy but true structural correction and subsequent long-term relief can only be achieved through the addition of extension traction therapy.
  • Similar to orthodontics changing the alignment of teeth, extension traction therapy changes soft tissues in a controlled fashion in order to allow the spine to regain its normal structural curve.
  • In this webinar, DC’s will learn how simply adding cervical extension traction therapy to any existing treatment protocol can significantly improve long-term outcomes in patients with the following symptoms related to FHP and reduced cervical lordosis:
  • Headaches, migraines, neck pain, upper back pain, TMJ disorders, thoracic outlet syndrome, shoulder pain/dysfunction, carpal tunnel syndrome, and more.
