This presentation begins with the concept of the “Noisy Joint”, a simple, reference-based, neurological concept that shows how the adjustment is based on indicators and not symptomatology. This session also covers indicators for the pronation foot pattern. Next, this session explains basic foot stabilization techniques, the seven adjustments for the foot pronation protocol and a workshop on adjust the right pronated foot. The last portion of the session discusses the educational concept of deliberate practice. Transitions from one adjust to the next are demonstrated followed by a workshop on the right and left pronated feet in deliberate practice format. Learning Objectives 1. Understand and explain the concept of the “Noisy Joint”. 2. Demonstrate the visual indicators of the pronated foot. 3. Demonstrate of method of temporary foot stabilization with tape. 4. Demonstrate the 7 adjustments for the pronated foot 5. Demonstrate increased accuracy and speed for the right foot pronation protocol. 6. Demonstrate increased accuracy and speed for the left foot pronation protocol. REFERENCES 1) Differential Diagnosis for the Chiropractor. Protocols and Algorithms. by: Thomas A.

Following graduation in 1986, the doc practiced as an associate with Dr. Sharon Gorman for one year. Graduating was far from Dr. Mike's start with chiropractic.
