California Accepts ChiroCredit.com Online Courses for license renewal and to meet hours to renew Xray permits and certificates

 

California Continuing Education Requirements: 24 hours per year
California Accepts 12 hours of Online Continuing Education Courses per year


Important notice: The Department of Consumer Affairs has released DCA waiver DCA-20-63 effective September 23rd, 2020.  All licensees may take an additional 12 hours of distance learning continuing education, the courses must be internet/web based and allow two-way communication between the attendees and the course instructor while they observe the course.  Licensees may not apply this rule to web-based conferences they have previously taken prior to the effective date of this waiver. It may only be applied to courses going forward. Example: a live web-based course taken in July 2020 will count as 12 hours of traditional distance learning credit.  This waiver does not change the due date of the counting education credits per DCA waiver DCA-20-53. Licensees MUST still renew their licensees in their expiration month, failure to do so will render the license expired and will go into forfeiture status if not renewed within 60 days following the expiration date of the license.  Please click on link for California approved course listing to view live interactive TeleSeminars/Webinars currently approved in California.

    The bridge exercise has been a staple amongst conditions seeking to rehabilitate everything from lower back pain to gait abnormalities. Traditionally, this is predominantly a gluteus maximus exercise however we often find that it is dominated by the hamstrings. This presentation goes through the recent research surrounding this exercise as well as ways to optimize its efficacy and clinical utility.
