Advanced Analysis and Corrective Procedures of the Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar Spine – TAPED PROGRAM

Advanced Analysis and Corrective Procedures of the Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar Spine – TAPED PROGRAM



This course is a TAPED VERSION of a two-day course presented by Dr. Kenneth Y. Davis at The Institute for Continuing Education in April 2023. At that time, students could opt to attend the class in-person or by live webinar. The class was taped via Zoom and the recordings of the class are now saved on a private Youtube channel.  Upon completion of the taped version of the class, the student will need to complete a quiz and a course evaluation to receive continuing education credits. A Certificate of Completion will be dated using the date that the quiz and evaluation are submitted to The Institute.

Directions as well as manuals/handouts will be available as downloads upon purchase of the class.

Anyone who has already taken the course and who wishes to purchase the taped version as a refresher (for CE credits or not) may do so at a reduced rate.

Please see below for IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding continuing education credits for this class.*
