Chiropractic, Interoception and Enuresis

Drs. Haavik and Buerger met while speaking on the same stage at some of the largest chiropractic events in the world.  With their dual love and passion for “brain based chiropractic”, they could not help but become fast friends.

 

Now they are joining brains to enlighten the world about the Science, Application and Communication of chiropractic!  Dr. Haavik brings to the table her brilliant research and ease of which to communicate it to your community.  Dr. Buerger brings her vast clinical experience and how to apply the research and build a “brain based practice”.  Both will break down complex neurophysiological concepts into small bite size pieces that are tangible.  Then they will give you the diamonds and pearls to take home and implement into your practices for ultimate patient outcomes!

Chiropractic, Interoception and Enuresis

Course topics will include:

Spinal Dysfunction and the Impact on the Brain

  • The impact that chiropractic adjustments have on the brain and central nervous system, with a particular emphasis on interoception. 
  • Where we are at today with the neurophysiological understanding of the impact of spinal function on brain function, highlighting what we know from paediatric populations and discussing the limitations of all this research as it relates to other paediatric populations.

Heidi Haavik, Ph.D. DC

Vagal Tone and Interoceptive Function

  • A deep dive into the function of the vagus nerve and its modulatory effects on the interoceptive system. 
  • The potential long-term neurophysiological and health consequences of interoceptive dysfunction.    

Monika Buerger, BA, DC

How does the brain know what is going on inside the body

  • How the brain keeps tabs on what is going on inside the body.
  • The parts of the brain that are needed for this to happen.
  • The evidence that chiropractic care can impact these parts of the brain and why this may related to bladder control in children.

Heidi Haavik, Ph.D. DC

Clinical Presentation

  • A close look at the potential clinical presentation practice members of all ages may present with when interoceptive processing is affected. 
  • The potential pathological consequences during fetal development with poor maternal interoceptive processing.

Monika Buerger, BA, DC 

The evidence about chiropractic care and kids with enuresis

  • The clinical evidence about the efficacy of chiropractic care for kids with bed wetting problems.
  • The safety literature about chiropractic care for children and babies.

Heidi Haavik, Ph.D. DC

Neuromodulatory Protocols

  • Neuromodulatory protocols to promote optimal neurovisceral function; including chiropractic care, myofascial release and neuronutritional considerations.
