Dr. Ralph Kruse is honored to be an instructor for the Swiss Chiropractic Academy’s Cox Technic seminar in Berne, Switzerland in March, 2016.
Below is the press release from the Swiss Chiropractic Academy:
We are proud to present to you the first round of our newly launched program “Technique Series”.
As a manual profession, we believe that you agree with us, that our manual skills should be second to none. Together, whether you are a freshly graduated learning the basics of chiropractic technique, or a veteran chiropractor looking to learn something new to benefit your patients, we are looking to improve the technical aspect of chiropractic in Switzerland.
Risen from the request of many of you, the academy is proud to offer you the opportunity to develop and improve your manual skills in this first round of "Technique Series" 2016.
• Each series is built up on 32 hours (4 days) of deliberate practice under guide of an expert, underlined with principles and theories behind each technique and the possibility to build up on previous experience.
• Each course is limited to 24 participants to allow best possible instructor interaction.
• Each series offers an introduction and refresh day, which allows also beginners of a technique a slow step in the new direction. On the following days, learned material gets strengthened, trained, and techniques refined. We recommend taking the courses in order to maximize the learning effects of deliberate practice.
As a special guest we are proud to present Dr James Cox, DC, who is the developer of the COX Technic protocols in Flexion-Distraction. Dr Cox and his team of instructors, who are certified in Cox Technic protocols will offer their official course of 4 days in the flexion-distraction protocol and offer participants to become certified in the lumbar protocol. This is the only course that Cox Technic offers internationally, therefore we highly recommend you having a closer look at this opportunity.
Dr. Ralph Kruse along with Dr. Kurt Olding will be instructing the first 16 hours of this certification course on March 5-6, 2016 in Berne, Switzerland.
We hope you find interest in this new opportunity of deliberately practicing your skills!
Dr Johanna McChurch-Forrer, DC & Dr Mireille Schläppi, DC
