Historical Background of Personal Injury Work Up and Mechanism of Injury Understanding

Dr. Jeffrey Cronk

Personal Injury work has been way more complicated than it needs to be.  In this three-hour course we will break down standardized spinal injury workups for today’s common personal injury market. Once these work ups are understood and standardly applied the documentation is easy to understand and should be standardly applied on every work up.  This is the information that is needed to grow and scale and injury practice in today’s injury market.  It includes historical, clinical and insurance principles.

Learning Objectives

  • The incredible costs associated with these injuries (Insurer’s, Employers etc.)

  • What and how the “Mercedes 80’s” of Chiropractic Practice negatively influenced standard injury workups still today
