This session will focus on the importance of effective communication in obtaining a comprehensive patient history that will direct the Chiropractor to confidently establish an initial differential diagnosis and explore sociodemographic factors that may impact the management of the patient. Information obtained during the patient encounter combined with appropriate physical examination procedures, including necessary orthopedic, neurologic, and special study assessments, will ensure an accurate diagnosis, determine the most effective individual treatment plan, and establish a rewarding doctor-patient relationship.

Many women continue fitness during their pregnancy and return to fitness postpartum without any guidelines on what is safe for their body. Most coaches and trainers have no idea what should be modified or even why the movements should be modified. While trainers and coaches should know this important information for their clients, chiropractors and other providers should also be knowledgeable in this essential information to help educate their patients on how to maintain a healthy body through this transformative period in a woman’s life.
