QA Ties Things Together
Get better outcomes and higher patient satisfaction
This section is integral to studying and learning Quadrant Analysis. The supplemental packet is chock full of reference materials to have handy as you are engaged with the material and then as you are engaged with your patients or clients.
Module 1: Foundational Principles
We begin at the beginning, with foundational principles upon which everything else is built. This module is heavy on what we call “subclassification.” Subclassification is a physiological diagnosis process that accompanies, supports and expands our understanding of the medical diagnosis or the classical chiropractic subluxation diagnosis.
Module 2: Evaluation Guidelines
Here we begin our evaluation: movement, posture, and palpation are utilized to zoom in on areas of mechanical dysfunction and weakness.
Module 3: At Home Practice
Here we discuss how we support our patients’ or clients’ improvements with at home self management for our different subclassifications
Module 4: Real Life & Research
This module offers insight into how Quadrant Analysis mechanics show up in real life. We use research studies to illustrate how QA mechanical principles manifest in different injuries
Module 5: Practical Applications
Practical application and further investigation of a number of QA principles are shown here, with a goal of deepening your foundational knowledge for easier clinical application.
Module 6: QA Mechanics by Area
Discussion of QA mechanics by area. The goal is to further your understanding of soft tissue and joint patterns throughout the body.
Module 7: Active Short Muscle Lengthening
This module gets into active short muscle lengthening. The goal is for you to be able to teach your patient or client how to lengthen short muscles at home.
Module 8: Practical Applications - hands, wrists, and feet.
This module is about practical application of QA principles in different parts of the body with an emphasis on hands/wrists and feet.
Module 9: Bees Knees
The knees are the focus here.
Module 10: Happy Feet & Ankles
Focus here is on the feet and ankles.
Module 11: Treatment Grab Bag
Further practical assessment and treatment.
Module 12: Patient Centered Care
In the end, we are here for our patients’ or clients’ benefit. This module contains a number of essays on how to consider our role as caregiver from a patient centered point of view, as well as a form designed to help with communication.
