Course Overview

This course is offered as a part of the Orthopedic/Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine Diplomate. In partnership with the University of Bridgeport, doctors in Wisconsin and around the country will have access to both the education and the respected certification on which more and more organizations and patients are relying for physician selection.

For those pursuing the full Diplomate, the initial 50 hours of onsite training will be followed by 250 hours of online education, which focuses on differential diagnosis, evaluation and management of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, most especially acute and chronic pain conditions. The course is appropriate for any DC looking for high quality postgraduate education, regardless of whether or not you plan to pursue the complete diplomate. 

Course Outline:

Part 1: Statin Myopathy: A Common Cause Of Chronic Pain – 2 CE DC

Learning Objectives:

  • Be able differentiate the three types of statin myopathy.
  • Realize the professional boundaries when treating a patient with statin myopathy.
  • Understand the relationship of statin myopathy and piriformis syndrome.
  • Comprehend the Numbers Needed to Treat (NNT).

Part 2: Chronic Pain and Neuromusculoskeletal Conditions – 2 CE DC

Learning Objectives:

  • Correlate anatomy and the patient's signs and symptoms in order to locate the neuromusculoskeletal lesion(s) and properly record findings
Part 3: Differential Diagnosis of Anterior Knee Pain – 2 CE DC

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify injured and painful tissues through careful assessment and intelligent use of neuromusculoskeletal testing and document the findings.
  • Rule-in and rule-out neuromusculoskeletal condition that might present as anterior knee pain.

Part 4: Foot Biomechanics and Patho-mechanics– 2 CE DC

In the foot, more than anywhere else in the body, the posture of the foot dictates how it functions.  Learn how arch height turns the foot from a propulsive lever to a loose adaptor to earth.  Learn how to use postural changes in the foot to reverse 25 of the most common orthopedic diagnoses without surgery.  MASS Posture Theory, taught by its inventor, is replacing common Podiatric misconceptions about how the foot works with a sound, physics based approach that makes significant positive changes in the gait cycle the improve efficiency, endurance, strength while reversing deformity and incidence of injury.  The workshop teaches how MASS Posture can be applied to improve patient outcomes and better hold Chiropractic adjustments.  Stop fighting a tug of war with gravity, instead, make gravity work for you.  Form follows function, not only in the direction of disease and deformity, but also in the the direction of health and reversal of deformity.

Part 5: Relieving Pain through Gentle Relaxation – 2 CE DC

Relax, Release, Relief is a series of relaxation techniques that are designed to manually, mechanically, interrupt the positive feedback loop that IS almost ALL chronic pain with the notable exception of Gout, Direct Nerve Compression, Neuropathy and the pain of muscular development.  When performed properly there are NO side effects except the elimination of pain (relief lasting usually until the next trauma), disappearance of trigger points, and restoration of range of motion where anatomically possible (not in fusions or bony obstruction).  The techniques, demonstrated in the workshop, are non-invasive, drug free, very gentle, and easy to learn.  This puts almost all cases of Fibromyalgia, and most CRPS in remission.  It works on old and new fractures (traumatic or surgical), post-implant pain, athletic injuries, pulled muscles, RLS, torn connective tissue, Frozen joints and many more etiologies.  One possible theory for these phenomena is discussed although much more research is needed.



Dr. James J. Lehman is a board-certified, chiropractic orthopedist, tenured, Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences, and Director of the only 3-year, full-time neuromusculoskeletal medicine residency program leading to board certification as a chiropractic orthopedist. He has taught post-graduate chiropractic orthopedics since 1998. Dr. Lehman has been recognized as Academician of the Year by the American Chiropractic Association and Professor of the Year by the University of Bridgeport, School of Chiropractic. Currently, Dr. Lehman is the Director of the University of Bridgeport Clinics and the Community Health Clinical Education Department.

He provided sports medicine, clinical rotations for fourth-year chiropractic students with the Bridgeport Bluefish professional baseball team for 10 years. While practicing in New Mexico, he mentored fourth-year University of New Mexico medical students. Currently, Dr. Lehman is credentialed as a chiropractic specialist with the Community Health Center, Inc. of Middletown, Connecticut.


Dr. Edward S. Glaser studied mechanical engineering and SUNY Stonyboork, and went on to receive his doctorate in podiatric medicine at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. He was in private practice for 13 years before dedicating all of his energies to the development of MASS Position Theory, which has added d new and comprehensive paradigm to the field of biomechanics. He has earned a substantial national and international reputation for re-visioning and re-engineering the way providers can significantly correct poor biomechanics i the foot and lower extremity. His new analysis and practical, common-sense approach to the casting and design of custom, full arch contact, calibrated foot orthotics has helped many health care providers achieve a new level of clinical success.
