In addition, participants will get the opportunity to observe actual assessments and treatments of professional hockey players, receive hands-on instructional coaching, and participate in an open analytical discussion and case review. New, unique and exciting cases are seen each and every week.


This course is designated for 22 Continuing Education hours. Continuing education credit (CE) is provided by New York Chiropractic College (NYCC).
