Science is now showing the power of the adjustment on the brain and neuroplasticity. This is very important, but health is a matter of helping the brain adapt to the stress it faces in today’s world. Thanks to the work of researchers, we know that the brain is in a learning mode for 20 minutes after the adjustment. The speaker for this two-hour course will help attendees understand the things they can do to fortify the power of the adjustment and supply the brain with the tools it needs to create new brain patterns, helping to move the patient from a sympathetic dominance to a para-sympathetic.
Dr. Buerger graduated from Life Chiropractic College-West in 1991. She also has an undergraduate degree in Exercise Physiology from California State University, Fresno. She has enjoyed extensive post graduate training in the areas of neurodevelopment, functional neurology, neuronutrition and functional medicine. She currently has a private family practice in Ammon, Idaho that is dedicated to serving those with neurodevelopmental challenges, neurodegenerative disorders and chronic health issues. She is the pioneer in the chiropractic profession when it comes to working with children that have Neurosensory and Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
She is a contributing author to the text book Pediatric Chiropractic, Volume I and Volume II with chapters on Pediatric History and Physical Exam, Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Sensory Processing Disorder. She has been lecturing nationally and internationally for over 15 years and is the founder of the Intersect4Life Education Seminars mentoring and on-line Learning Academy with various CE classes focusing on functional neurology, neurodevelopment, methylation biochemistry and functional nutrition. She has also collaborated with Dr. Heidi Haavik on bringing on-line CE classes to chiropractors with Haavik-Buerger Seminars.
Her newest exciting adventures is her “developingMINDS” certification and CE program in Functional Neurodevelopment where she has brought 30 years of her research, teaching, and clinical experience into one incredible program!
The purpose of this session is to impart strategies for explaining to patients exactly what neuroplasticity is and how it is affected by chiropractic. Topics of discussion include neuroadaption, understanding environmental stressors, and a demonstration of a simple graphic that can be used across all ages and stages to help the practicing chiropractor understand the integrity of their patients’ neuroadaptive responses.
This speaker will help chiropractors communicate the science of the chiropractic adjustment in understandable terms and learn to easily and efficiently enhance the neurophysiological effects of the chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Coffren will categorize simple ways to integrate and effectively communicate neurologically based chiropractic care to your patient population, identifying clinically proven techniques that enhance the neurophysiological and neuroendocrine effects of the chiropractic adjustment. She will also review the positive synergistic effects of combining effective, clear, and concise patient communications.
The goal of these sessions is to offer practice-based procedures and dialog to help move a practice to a neurological foundation. The first part will be presented by Dr. Barwell regarding the necessity for accurate neurological measurements. The second and third parts will be presented by Dr. Huffer and Dr. Klapp on their experiences, procedures, and dialog used in their offices. The overall purpose of these presentations is to show how to apply technology and procedures for a fully Neurologically Based Chiropractic practice while integrating the Art, Science, and Philosophy that makes chiropractic unique.
In this presentation, our speaker will tie together the current neuroscience on developmental neuroplasticity and, she will utilize chiropractic research to explain the current working theory of how chiropractic adjustments help modulate internal and external environmental perception that the brain relies on for optimal human potential. Attendees will understand neuroscience through easy-to-learn concepts and gain ways to communicate “brain-based chiropractic care” to their chiropractic patients.
Dr. Kreg Huffer is a 1983 Palmer graduate. For the past 37 years he has served the Jackson Center, Ohio community, where he owns and operates a cash practice with two associate doctors and a full-time nutritionist. Dr. Huffer is extremely active in politics and has served with Bharon Hoag on the Governor’s Cabinet Opiate Action Team to develop new guidelines for the State of Ohio, establishing a first option “non-drug therapeutic approach” that names chiropractic adjustments as a first consideration for treatment of acute pain. He is the past president of the Ohio State Chiropractic Association and at the end of his tenure, he was pleased to see more dues paying members than in the 50-year history of the association. In 2018, Dr. Huffer implemented NeuroInfiniti’s brain-based chiropractic technology into his office protocol. He is excited to share how he made a successful transition.

Our speaker, known as the father of the Neurologically Based Chiropractic (NBC) movement, will share how new information in neuroscience fits into the Art, Science, and Philosophy of Chiropractic. The primary program addresses brain function, the formation of compromised neural integrity, and the effect the adjustment has in returning balance to the system. This new information can also help to define the frequency, duration, and intensity of care based on the neurological needs of the patient. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how neuroscience has exposed the damage stress can cause to neurological function, as well as explain how research has established the role of chiropractic in stabilizing this damage.
Dr. Richard Barwell is the father of the Neurologically Based Chiropractic (NBC) movement. He is the Founder and President of Chiropractic Equity Offices (CEO), Inc., his practice management program based on NBC. He is also the Founder of Neuroinfiniti, state-of-the-art instrumentation that records neurophysiological activity, stress responses, recovery, and the ability of the chiropractic adjustment to improve the body’s neurophysiological state. After graduating from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College with honors in 1964, he started a family Wellness Practice in British Columbia. He has since established numerous successful practices and guest lectured at various chiropractic institutions.
