About the Seminar

Performance Optimization
This will cover chronic pain which is widespread in our population today, evidenced by our ongoing opioid epidemic. Specific protocols and techniques for common conditions such as neck, shoulder and low back pain will be taught using traditional chiropractic and applying one of the newest technological advances in the healing arts, laser therapy. We will discuss statistics involving chronic pain conditions. Demonstrations of treating chronic heel and foot pain with laser therapy will be performed.

Advanced Pediatric Practice: Implementing New Modalities; Neurology and Immunology
With an extensive background in integrative medicine and as member of various neurosurgery teams specializing in monitoring and mapping brain and spinal cord surgeries, Dr. Marc Funderlich brings a whole new angle to the field of laser medicine. The objective in this course is to introduce doctors to key concepts in developmental neurology and immunology to lay a strong foundation of necessity. Along with this new academic knowledge, we will integrate case studies into each area of pediatric development discussed to ensure doctors understand the presentations that come into their office & have a well-defined direction on how to make a positive impact. Hands on neurologic exam procedures will be shown by Dr. Funderlich, either live or in video form from his fulltime practice. Effective laboratory analysis will be taught using real life patient results along with sharing the successfully interventions used to change findings for children with autoimmune or immunologic imbalance. Attendees will leave feeling empowered to not only care for their own children’s wellbeing but help the children in their practice victoriously.

Come and see how this comprehensive and hands-on examination approach of therapy will produce superior clinical outcomes for your patients!

Techniques developed

Brain/Body FIT®

An advanced examination and treatment system that includes 15 registered trademarks; “Integrating Clinical Evaluation & Performance Enhancement®.” Teaching clinicians the art of creating a Brain BodyMap® and providing multidimensional correction involving adjustments, soft tissue, clinical exercises and much more.

Health Integration Technique (H.I.T.)®

A multidimensional system integrating the major healing arts and applying lab testing, nutrition, homeopathy and multiple modalities.

Fitness Integration Technique (F.I.T.)®

is a multi-dimensional program that creates a “universal evaluation and language” to integrate clinicians, strength & fitness professionals and the clients they serve.

(F.I.T.)® is a standardized, active, reproducible, progressive system of patient/client evaluation.  (F.I.T.)® is used to determine symmetry, asymmetry, strength and conditioning imbalances, proper range of motion and the flexibility/inflexibility of hard and soft tissue components resulting in a three dimensional “BodyMap®”. The evaluation measures a person’s comprehensive neuro-musculo-skeletal-fascial, meridian system and “General Physical Preparedness” (GPP).

Imbalances are determined by evaluating and scoring single axis movements in standard planes of motion and graduating to multi-axial (skilled) movement patterns. Ultimately, the information transfers to open skilled activity in daily life or in elite athletic performance.  The results of the (F.I.T.)® evaluation then assists the integration of professional treatment recommendations.

The goal of (F.I.T.)® is for each clinician and/or performance specialist to excel in “active examination™” procedures and provide a treatment solution of specific Low Level Laser Therapy, adjustments, percussion and prescribed “Clinical Exercise” programs to correct and optimize beyond the concept of ideal neutral posture and to graduate to optimum (flexibility, strength, balance and agility) movement, function and performance patterns.
