Evaluation and Corrections of the Sphenobasilar

How Would You Like to Have the Key to Unlock the Cranium and Make an Impact on the Other 80% of the CNS? Mastering the art of correcting and balancing the sphenobasilar mechanism is the key to creating a consistent, effective, and efficient patient outcome while at the same time growing your practice from the inside.

In this ONLINE program, you will learn the anatomy and physiology of the Sphenobasilar mechanism, what the most common distortion patterns are and how to evaluate and correct interference to the function of the sphenobasilar symphysis. The demonstrations, workshopping and lecture format will give you the ability to implement these protocols Monday morning in your office. You will be able to help more people and become the go-to expert in your community.

The sphenobasilar symphysis is the most mobile joint in the cranium. The sphenoid articulates with all the cranial bones except the nasal and lacrimal, it provides conduits for 9 of the 12 cranial bones and plays a major role in establishing proper cranial facial dynamics.

Besides functional growth and developmental parameters of the cranium, it affects the tension in the dural meningeal system, movement of cerebrospinal fluid and helps lay the foundation for proper neurological development. If you would like to get better more consistent results with your more challenging patients, have a greater effect on the other 80% of the CNS, grow your practice with constant referrals, become the go-to chiropractor in your area and have more fun in practice then this course is for you.

Meet the Instructors

As early as first quarter in chiropractic school they were attracted to each other’s commitment to chiropractic and the pursuit of excellence.  Their combined 80 years of personal and clinical and teaching experience, in delivering the chiropractic adjustment is unparalleled in the chiropractic profession.  Their international outreach through teaching, writing and lecturing has been a driving force in their personal and professional careers since their first seminar taught together as students, in 1979.

Their years of experience have taught them what works and what does not work to create a successful practice and lifestyle. The more competent and comprehensive your expertise you will find that more patients will seek your services and your practice will grow exponentially.

Feedback from Our Students

“I decided to take this course per the recommendation of my friend and mentor, Dr. Christie McClarty. She has always spoken highly of both Dr. Martin Rosen and Dr. Nancy Watson regarding their intelligence and ability to teach. Being that I desire to help the pediatric population achieve wellness and live their best life, it was a no-brainer to register for the course. More specifically, Dr. Christie encouraged me to take this specific one first since she has found the sphenobasilar junction to be one of the keys to her practice. Since I am graduating soon, I figured I could get ahead of the game and start putting this into practice prior to actually being practicing. I was hoping to learn more about adjusting pediatrics and knowledge on the anatomy of the pediatric population.

I am technically not allowed to do cranials in our campus clinic (sad, I know). So I haven’t truly put into practice the specific adjustments. However, this course has helped me better communicate chiropractic care for kids and babies to parents as well as improved my analysis for kids and babies. I feel more confident having a deeper understanding of their anatomy.

I would recommend this course to others. I have found my confidence has improved as a chiropractic intern and soon-to-be doctor in the realm of pediatric chiropractic care. I’m so excited to officially put all of this into practice! My experience in the sphenobasilar course has been great! As a current chiropractic intern and soon-to-be doctor, I was searching for a way to prepare for the pediatric population I desire to serve during clinic and post-graduation. This course has given me great confidence because of the in-depth explanations Dr. Rosen would go into in the video modules of physiology and anatomy. The sphenobasilar junction was very unfamiliar to me prior to this course and I’m so glad to have more knowledge of it. I think other doctors AND students should take these who are searching for MORE! This course helped unlock many gray areas about the pediatric population for me. It has improved not only my skill level but also my communication skills to parents and families.

Thank you both for your time, energy, and passion for these topics. I really hope to be able to join you soon, and maybe in the company of Dr. Christie! That would be very full-circle. On behalf of all students out there, we appreciate your service to this profession! The legacy you both are leaving is tremendously respected.”

“I have a Master’s in Chiropractic Paediatrics from McTimoney and 27 years of an exclusively paediatric practice. I’m always looking for new ways to expand my knowledge base with clinically appropriate skills. I’ve been utilizing cranial techniques as taught to me by my mentor Dr. Neil Davies and they have been very powerful tools. Dr. Rosen has been on my radar for a long time now. I would love to do in person classes but the setup of this course has been very helpful and provides very easy access to his teachings.

I’ve been using the techniques in practice as I’ve learned them in the course. My practice is focussed on optimizing infant/child health, breastfeeding/milk transfer, ankyloglossia, healing after birth for the neonate, plagiocephaly and digestive difficulties. Cranial evaluation and correction has always played a role in my daily practice and I’ve found them to provide very good outcomes in all clinical circumstances.

The subtle touch of cranial work is somewhat foreign to many DCs. I think many chiropractic schools emphasize the higher force adjustments and the appeal of a more mechanistic approach. In order to provide thorough care to the paediatric population, there must be an understanding of the dural meningeal system, the movement of the cerebral spinal fluid and primary and secondary respiratory motion. Dr. Rosen’s course allows DCs the ability to dive into how gentle cranial corrections can make a massive difference to the neurology of the paediatric patient. Reviewing cranial anatomy, evaluation and correction of the cranial restriction is paramount for doctors hoping to see infants and children in practice.

Thank you for the academic expansion. You’ve added a different skill set to my practice. The setup of the course was great. Loved the transcript option, the notes, the videos and the doctor sharing. Well done.”
