Seminar Information

Next Seminar 1 —  January 24, 25, 26, 2020

 Location:  The office of Dr. William H. Koch — 18500 US Hwy 441, Mount Dora, Florida  32757.  Just outside Orlando.

Three Days, 24+ hours of hands on, personalized instruction — $400 for Doctors, $250 Students.

Part One will cover the basics of the Koch Protocols technique approach including Dr. Koch’s unique approach to the first visit examination, consultation and treatment.  “I do a very complete examination during the first visit to determine weakness and imbalance throughout the structure.  And no matter what issue the patient presents as the main problem, I always begin my treatment by balancing the pelvis. As with the foundation of a house, if it is not level and balanced, nothing in the house will be level, strong or stable.”

Therefore, much of this first seminar will be focused on balancing the pelvis. Dr. Koch will spend a lot of time teaching the examination and treatment protocols he uses to achieve this, including his use of the ArthroStim and VibraCussor instruments, SOT blocks, and the methods he uses to determine what category of SOT blocking is most appropriate according to examination indicators. He will also teach his procedure for manually releasing the psoas.

This seminar will also include demonstration and basic instruction of the Koch Protocols specific evaluation and treatment of the thoracic and cervical spine with the objective of re-establishing the functional inter-relationship between the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine and providing an understanding of the difference between a segmental vs. a regional approach to spinal correction.

Dr. Koch will teach you how he uses both instrument and specific manual adjusting techniques for the thoracic and cervical spine, which includes Gonstead cervical chair adjustments.  He will also teach his favorite cervical adjustment: a three dimensional seated occipital technique, which he learned from Dr. Clay Thompson.

Dr. Koch has often said, “If I could only do one cervical move it would be Dr. Thompson’s occipital adjustment.”

As time allows he will also demonstrate some low force bio-cranial treatments, internal TMJ corrections and other specific soft tissue orthopedic techniques to give you the tools to deal with your most difficult and challenging cases.

Further instruction and practice of these techniques is included in the Advanced Technique Seminar 2, which will also include myotomes and extremity work.

See It – Feel It – Do It

We are keeping the seminar small to give every participant the opportunity to maximize the learning experience and get as much out of each session as he or she can.  The goal is for each doctor to “See It, Feel It and Do It.”  You will see me perform my protocols, experience the way it feels to be adjusted this way, and get the opportunity to do the techniques by practicing on each other.

The Seminar  is scheduled for Friday January 24 to Sunday January 26  from 10 am until 6 pm.

Limited to 6 doctors, this seminar offers a small, hands-on intense learning experience that you will find unlike anything else.  It will be professionally rewarding – and a lot of fun too!

Three days — $400             Discounted price for Students:   $250

Course Objectives

To teach you the way Dr. Koch uses Advanced Examination and Adjusting Techniques including Instrument Adjusting for Better Results and Happier Patients in a simple model of a Patient Centered Referral Based Cash Practice.

In recent years there have been enormous improvements in the design and technology of hand held chiropractic instruments, as well as in the various technique methods for their use. This has resulted in the opportunity for significantly better, faster results for our patients. It has also resulted in effective treatment options that are much easier on the doctors. In this seminar series Dr. William H. Koch will discuss the benefits of instrument adjusting for patients and doctors and will demonstrate and give one-on-one instruction in the various technique approaches he uses.

He will also teach his own protocols for instrument adjusting using the ArthroStim, VibraCussor and GRT Lite in conjunction with a variety of other techniques including SOT, Gonstead, Creed Neural Integration, Gonzalez Quantum Neurology Rehabilitation, and others to get incredible, quick and lasting results for your patients.

Why Instrument Adjusting?

  • Patients love instrument adjusting. It is gentle and eliminates the joint cracking sounds many find intimidating and offensive. While gentle it can achieve very fast and dramatic results that “wow” the patients.
  • Instrument adjusting allows greater precision and versatility in adjusting the spine and extremities.
  • Instrument adjusting dramatically reduces the stress on the doctor’s body. Too many chiropractors’ careers are cut short by injuries which occur at a rate comparable to professional football players.  Instrument adjusting extends and even saves careers.
  • Instrument adjusting permits adjusting of the full spine or selected areas in a wide range of positions: the usual prone and supine or with patients sitting or standing or even with the patient in motion. In fact, instruments allow for dynamic adjusting of the patient while walking in place, adding a whole new dimension to the corrective process by allowing adjustments to be made in motion and under full weight bearing loads.

Course Outline/Description

  1. Introduce the multiple benefits of Instrument Adjusting.
  2. Introduce a high level of precision and specificity to the corrective process.
  3. Demonstrate and instruct how instruments can be used in a variety of ways and for various specific results.
  4. Demonstrate how instruments allow us to address specific, objective examination findings and make appropriate corrections with a degree of effectiveness that allows the doctor to show immediate functional improvements on post adjustment re-examination. This clearly demonstrates to doctor and patient that his protocol has had a positive effect.
  5. Integrate Instrument Adjusting with Manual Techniques for a complete protocol.
  6. Show you how to get fantastic results quickly and easily using instrument adjusting, SOT categorizing and blocking techniques in conjunction very specific and precise manual adjusting techniques.
  7. Discuss how Dr. Koch has built multiple successful referral based cash practices over the past 50 years by  producing exceptional results and happy patients — and how you can too.

Get excited about chiropractic again. Enjoy your practice more than ever before. Simplify, lower your overhead and get better results for happier patients who help you build a thriving referral practice.  Sign up for a Koch Advanced Technique Seminar.

Each Koch Seminar Part 1 is three days, approximately 24 hours, of personal, hands on instruction in a small group setting that will allow you to go to work Monday morning and start using what you have learned.

Three days, approximately 24 hours, maximum 6 doctors per class — $400!   Call Kiana at 352-729-2678.

Part 1 — The Koch Protocols for the First Visit and Balancing the Pelvis

Course Description

Seminar Part One will cover the basics of the Koch Protocols technique approach including Dr. Koch’s unique approach to the first visit examination, consultation and treatment.  “I do a very complete examination during the first visit to determine weakness and imbalance throughout the structure.  And no matter what issue the patient presents as the main problem, I always begin my treatment by balancing the pelvis. As with the foundation of a house, if it is not level and balanced, nothing in the house will be level, strong or stable.”

Therefore, much of this first seminar will be focused on balancing the pelvis. Dr. Koch will spend a lot of time teaching the examination and treatment protocols he uses to achieve this, including his use of the ArthroStim and VibraCussor instruments, SOT blocks, and the methods he uses to determine what category of SOT blocking is most appropriate according to examination indicators. He will also teach his procedure for manually releasing the psoas.

To start making remarkable changes in your patients, you must first be sure they have a stable foundation — the pelvis. 

You may want to read his recent articles The Pelvic Imperative and The Psoas — Missing Link in Pelvic Correction and the latest article in his series on the pelvis, The Pelvis and Emotions on my blog or in The American Chiropractor magazine. His articles in TAC are searchable under both Dr. William H. Koch or Dr. Bill Koch.

Although the main focus of this first seminar will be on balancing the pelvis, Dr. Koch will also teach the Koch Protocols approach to the examination and specific correction of the thoracic and cervical spine using both instrument and specific manual techniques, with the objective of re-establishing the functional inter-relationship between the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine and providing an understanding of the difference between a segmental vs. a regional approach to spinal correction.

“I will teach you how I use both instrument and specific manual adjusting techniques for the thoracic and cervical spine and which includes Gonstead cervical chair adjustments.  I will also teach my favorite cervical adjustment: a three dimensional seated occipital technique, which I learned from Dr. Clay Thompson. I have often said that if I could only do one cervical move it would be Dr. Thompson’s occipital adjustment.”

 

Dr. Koch says: “In this first part of my seminar series I will demonstrate my integrated technique approach which includes many of the techniques I have learned in my years of practice.

While I use many technique methods including SOT, Gonstead, Pettibon, etc, I have integrated these with the use of hand held instrument adjusting to get exceptional results very quickly. Instrument adjusting is a major part of the Koch Method.”

In recent years there have been enormous improvements in the design and technology of hand held chiropractic instruments, as well as in the various technique methods for their use. This has resulted in the opportunity for significantly better, faster results for our patients. It has also resulted in effective treatment options that are much easier on the doctors.

Main Benefits of Instrument Adjusting

Patients love instrument adjusting. It is gentle and eliminates the joint cracking sounds many find intimidating and offensive. While gentile, it can achieve very fast and dramatic results that “wow” the patients.

Instrument adjusting allows greater precision and versatility in adjusting the spine and extremities. It dramatically reduces the stress on the doctor’s body. Too many chiropractors careers are cut short by injuries which occur at a rate comparable to professional football players.

Put simply, it extends and even saves careers.

Instrument adjusting permits adjusting of the full spine or selected areas in a wide range of positions: the usual prone and supine or with patients sitting or standing or even with the patient in motion. In fact, instruments allow for dynamic adjusting of the patient while walking in place, adding a whole new dimension to the corrective process by allowing adjustments to be made in motion and full weight bearing loads.

Demonstration of Instrument Adjustment Techniques will include:

  1. Prone adjusting
  2. Supine adjusting
  3. Seated adjusting
  4. Standing adjusting
  5. In motion adjusting
  6. Specialized techniques for shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, hips, knees, ankles and feet.
  7. Use of Instruments for Myotome Adjusting

Seminar  Objectives 

Provide the doctor with a detailed and purposely sequenced protocol for examination leading to evidence based analytical conclusions.

All corrective procedures are chosen to directly address the positive examination findings and conclusions.

Introduce a high level of precision and specificity to the corrective process.

Demonstrate and instruct how instruments can be used in a variety of ways and for various specific results.

Demonstrate how instruments allow us to address specific, objective examination findings and make corrections with a degree of effectiveness that allows the doctor to show immediate functional improvements on post adjustments re-examination. This clearly demonstrates to doctor and patient that his protocol has had a positive effect.

Give participants a chance to work one on one with me for “hands on” practice with the technique  protocols I use.

Each attendee will experience my examination and treatment protocols first hand as “the patient” and as the doctor. See It — Feel It — Do It.

Three days, approximately 20 hours —  An amazing amount of hands on technique training that is also a lot of fun!

Part Two:  More work on the Cervical and Thoracic Spine and the entire Kinetic Chain of Lateral Joints — the TMJ, shoulder, hips, knees, ankles and feet — and will include instruction in The Koch Functional Fitness Exercise Routine

Part Two will be a continuation of Part One.  We are tentatively planning this advanced seminar for May 2019.

You will also learn some low force bio-cranial treatments, extremity work, myotomes, external instrument and manual internal TMJ corrections, and other specific soft tissue orthopedic techniques to give you the tools to deal with your most difficult and challenging cases.

I will demonstrate and time permitting will have everyone do the Koch Functional Fitness Multi-Plane Exercises.
