Integrated Brain Therapy Certification
Lead Trainer: Dr. Ian Horseman

The biggest problem in the way our medical community treats patients is that most practitioners have been taught to focus solely on the localized issue: I.e.: you have lower back pain so we’ll treat the lower back. You have a stomach problem, we’ll treat the stomach.

While this may work, it’s far from the complete holistic approach to solving the issue and to promote overall health and wellness.

At the Brain Therapy Clinic, we look at things like lower back issues very differently. We know that the impact of the injury reaches all the way to the brain through loss of proprioception and diaschisis. We often can detect a subsequent decrease in muscle tone in the affected area.

The Integrated Brain Therapy Series is an advanced training course that helps you learn how to identify the involved pathways and subsequent brain functional lesions.  We will teach you the practical ability to influence and help the body correct the faulty communication between itself and the brain.

The relationship between the brain and body becomes part of a patient’s healing, and if ignored, the person may never fully recover or repeat the injury.

In this certification you will learn about:

  • The brain-body connection and how they interact with each other
  • Diagnostics and therapies for conditions such as concussions, vertigo, and headaches
  • The brain’s primary functions of posture, balance, and gait with emphasis on clinical skills
  • The diagnosis and treatments for the lobes of the brain
  • Eye movements and their integral role in diagnosing and treating brain pathologies
  • And much more!

Our modules are designed with the concept that you will review basic neuroanatomy and physiology prior to attending in order for the modules to be clinically practical.

Here is what your peers have to say about Integrated Brain Therapy Training:

Thank you Ian.  My patients are loving all this stuff. Many of them are getting better when in the past they were just leveling out.  I am excited like a small kid with the toy, I cant wait to learn more!
Dr. Vyalcheskav Borisenko
This seminar series has expanded my understanding of when to adjust and why.  Also very importantly I have a much better idea about when not to adjust a brain-injured patient. There is an excellent rapport between instructors and students. My confidence and competence keep growing. Bravo!
Dr. Peter Gaibisels

Wow, this seminar blew my mind!  This is the seminar that really tied everything together for me.  Integrates neurology and chiropractic with very logical assessment and treatment protocols that all chiropractors should incorporate into their practices immediately.  Couldn’t get enough and can’t wait for the next module!

Dr. Derek

The information that I learn a the seminar is extremely valuable. Dr. Horseman and Dr. Jaillet relayed the information in a clear and professional manner and you are able to use what you have learned right away.

Dr. Daugherty

Great seminar, a lot of new information from previous seminars, Ian teaches the neuro in an easy to learn format, very easy to implement into your practice.

Dr. Kevin

I have been through other neurology seminar and spent thousands of dollars leaving with little clinical relevance.  After being through the seminar series with Dr. Ian and Dr. Peter, I have learned more than any other neurological seminars combined but more importantly the ability to apply the knowledge and make it applicable therapies for my patients on Monday.

I now have patients travelling from long distance to see me and I am getting attention from my medical peers. I am now seeing MDs and their families!! These seminars are a “no brainer” and a must if you’re serious about integrated neurology in your clinic.

Dr. Ed Corello

A great seminar to increase skills to help patients.

Dr. Blake Broker

If you are a chiropractor who knows we work with the nervous system but are a little on the academic vs. application – This seminar is for you. You learn+ you do. Take home skills are the most important part.

Dr. Marco Caravaggio

The Integrated Brain Therapy modules teaches in a way that makes it much easier to understand functional neurology and also applicable to daily practice

Dr. James Fung

I am always looking for the next great course and I found it in Dr. Ian Horseman’s Integrated Brain Therapy modules. I believe brain injuries/ concussions are the next frontiers for Chiropractic;  Dr. Ian Horseman is on the cusp of new and emerging research, treatment techniques and the equipment to standardize his method. I found the course provided in-depth practical knowledge of the brain and its pathways without overcomplicating or becoming overwhelmed. He gave us assessment tools that can be readily used in the office immediately and ample practice time to ensure we grasped the correct concepts.  More importantly, we had live examples and saw the immediate and lasting results from his method. If you are looking to revolutionize your practice and help a vast population of people from concussions to Parkinson’s look no further. I would highly recommend this seminar series.

Dr. Jacquelyn Nicholls

The seminar is very engaging and the material presented is clinically relevant.

Dr. Adib Ashraf

Taking Dr. Horseman’s seminars is the best continuing education I have taken since graduating 13 years ago. He makes learning neurology applicable to everyday practice and seeing results with patients that seemed to have plateaued and amazing results with concussion patients. I have recommended these seminars to all my associates and will continue to refer to fellow colleagues.

Dr. Nicole Fox

The Integrated Brain Therapy modules have made Functional Neurology real, understandable and, most importantly, applicable. My community has benefited not only in that I can help my regular chiropractic patients get better results, but in that, I’ve helped many concussion and other more neurologically based patients with the framework I learned at the modules.
