Session:  Chiropractic Holism - The Missing Link To Full Recovery
A major challenge for clinicians is reaching a premature plateau in care leaving the patient frustrated by their lack of progress in getting well and the clinician experiencing an equal level of frustration in not being able to achieve their clinical goals despite following accepted methods of care. Often the key link to successfully completing a stalled course of care is not in providing more care to the location of chief complaint but finding the loss of function in another area of the body that when normalized removes focal strain on specific body structures enabling more energy efficient, strain and pain-free movement . This presentation will address how to identify and remove those key distortions in the body that when normalized allow courses of care to complete themselves successfully so the patient can return to vital and vibrant life.

Session 1:  THINK! The Newest and Brightest Vision for Chiropractic Practice

 There is a lot of controversy inside the chiropractic relating to our professional identity and scope of practice.  In this new, stimulating program, Dr. Gentempo will review a significant body of research published in the past 5 years in leading research journals related to varying fields of science such as epigenetics, neuroscience, and good old chiropractic clinical case studies.  This presentation will answer several transformative questions.   What makes chiropractic different?  What is the goal of the chiropractic adjustment? Why does it work so well?  As well this presentation will passionately make the 'case for chiropractic' as a whole.  The attendee will leave motivated, inspired, and with greatly enhanced confidence and certainty.

Session 2: Free Form: The Precise Alignment of Thinking, Practice, and Achievement.

Philosophy is at the foundation of every thought, action, and conclusion.  Philosophical contradictions lead to destruction.  One who contends that philosophy has nothing to do with chiropractic or science doesn’t realize that they just proposed a philosophy.  In this very unique presentation, Dr. Gentempo will reveal the branches of philosophy, how they apply to chiropractic, and how alignment in thinking leads to a form of freedom and achievement that is unparalleled.
