Offering programs to the chiropractic profession to improve their technical excellence. We are looking to those dedicated chiropractors and chiropractic students who want to focus their mastery on delivering the chiropractic adjustment. While the triad for professional growth includes art, science, and philosophy, our programs are heavily weighted in the art and science of chiropractic.

The Institute is excited to announce our next premier online program:


Evaluating the Vestibular System: Determining Balance,

Coordination and Processing Issues



The vestibular system including the brainstem, inner ear and midbrain is responsible for balance, coordination, and processing information from the brainstem to the midbrain and finally the forebrain. It plays a major role in coordinating information from our environment and making decisions on how we
respond to this input. The physical, emotional, and neurological integration processes can be interrupted when the vestibular system is not functioning correctly.

If you work with children that have physical, emotional, and neurological integration issues, it is likely that the vestibular system is compromised.

Are you seeing patients with:

  • Children with coordination and balance issues?
  • Children with sensory processing challenges and aberrant behavioral patterns?
  • Postural issues creating ongoing compensatory problems?
  • Athletes having trouble reaching new goals or perfecting their skills?
  • Patients who are becoming challenged with daily living due to trauma (including
    concussions), stress or aging concerns?
  • Children or adults who easily get frustrated in physical, intellectual, or social situations?
  • Children who are hypersensitive to input including, sound, touch, pain, temperature, and visual stimuli?

The manifestations of vestibular damage are especially important in the evaluation of brainstem dysfunction injury. The circuitry of the vestibular system extends to a large part of the brainstem, and simple clinical tests of vestibular function can be formed to determine brainstem involvement. Knowing before the situation or condition escalates is paramount to achieving a more efficient, less stressful (both to the child and family) resolution.

This course will show you how to work with this complex sensory system.   We will teach you how to evaluate systems and determine deficits and imbalances that can be affecting the person’s overall health and functional capacity.
Remember, balance, posture, coordination, sensory processing, and all activities of daily living are intimately related to its proper function.
In this ONLINE program Drs. Rosen and Watson will walk you through an understanding of the entire vestibular system, its anatomy, functions and impact on a person’s functional capacity.

The course format will give you a step-by-step guide to understand what influences the patterns, as well as the signs and symptoms of vestibular system imbalances.


You will receive 12 modules over a 3-month period plus a private facebook group to interact and have your questions answered, live Dr. Sharings, a workbook and full transcriptions of all video presentations.

 "It’s All in the Head is a must have book for not only chiropractors, but also for parents and anyone working with children. It is exciting to know that now there is a course for everyone to engage with 2 of the leading pediatric chiropractors who wrote the book. This class offers an opportunity to delve into the world of human potential from a salutogenic viewpoint. The information is insightful and gives clear meaning to what is common versus what is normal in your child’s development. You will gain a better understanding of your child’s developmental processes. It answers many questions including why and how cranial distortions affect not only structure but neurological function as well."

"I’ll never forget that moment when I had the feeling that something was “off” with one of my children. I wasn’t able to put my finger on exactly what it was, but I could see it in his face, the way he crawled and some of his behavior. And yet, when I went to compare it to the CDC guidelines and asked my pediatrician about it, I was told that it is “normal and they will grow out of it.” But that gut feeling still remained and I could still see my child struggle. Then I read, “It’s All in the Head,” by Drs. Watson and Rosen. This totally changed my perspective for all three of my children. I am so excited that they have developed this online course to empower me, as a parent, to understand what is normal childhood development and what is not, when and how to seek professional help, and what I can be doing at home to help my children stay on track for good health and development. This course is a MUST for any parent who wants to help their children thrive as they grow!"

"As a parent, a Monteessori teacher and a recent postpartum care provider, I have spent the past thirty years observing infants and children.   We know more now than ever before about child development and information is readily available to parents and caregivers alike.   
We wait for milestones to be met; doing everything we can to help our children get there.   Still we find ourselves with newborns that can't latch, babies with reflux, toddlers with chronic ear infections, preschoolers who fall a lot and elementary aged children with unexplained respiratory issues.   We lovingly study our babies and we know we are seeing that something is off, but we can't quite put our finger on it.   The list of childhood concerns is endless and as it grows, parents and caregivers look for help from outside expert sources.   These resources are a gift, but they often take us farther away from the root of our children's struggles.   That being their own physical bodies.
The human body is the foundation block for all social, emotikonal, physical and cognitive development.   If this foundation has a crack, it can impact the trajectory of a child's growth.   In the hands of a pediatric chiropractor, infants and children are evaluated and adjusted for the slightest subluxations that may hinder a child's optimal development.  The birth process itself can be a lot for a little person to endure no matter how natural or peaceful.
As newborns, my three children we all seen by a chiropractor before their one week pediatric MD visit, continuing throughout their childhood and teenage years.   I am a mediocre mother at best, yet my children never had an ear infection, strep or respiratory concerns.   Two of them suffered serious concussions playing sports that were managed with chiropractic care.   Allergies were treated, unmedicated fevers came down, significant vision issues were reduced.    My children are not different from most; they rode bikes, went to school and got sick.   Our first choice was always chiropractic for preventive, restorative and trauma care when it came to our children's health.   It's a practice that is built on observation, knowledgeable evaluation, and gentle correction, as it supports the body's innate desire to heal itself.
I wss recently introduced to the book "It's All in the Head'' by Drs Martin Rosen and Nancy Watson, two parents and pediatric chiropractors with over 80 years of combined clinical and teaching experience.    I have to say this book is a must for any parent, or healthcare professional that works with children.  While I was exposed to the benefits of pediatric chiropractic care when my children were still infants, many others are not.   This book answers so many questions, gives a window into the normal guidelines of pediatric development and gives the reader a better understanding of the infant's growth and development as well as helping to recognize aberrant neurological patterns before they become actual diagnosed disease processes or worse, they become set in the child's developmental, learning and social behavior patterns.
Now there is a course, based on this book, for anyone who works with or has children.    This will be a great support, as well as offer guideposts, to address some of the early childhood issues that many parents and healthcare professionals face.   I highly recommend learning and sharing this information."

"When my son was younger than 2, I started to notice some things that were off with him. Speaking to the professionals around me, I was repeatedly assured that all was well, not to worry. Again and again. 
When he finally received an autism diagnosis, I was oddly reassured that what I had been seeing was, in fact, valid and now we could get to work. It seemed all that work focused more around addressing symptoms and rote training than working towards the cause and it drove me crazy. Between the social pressure not to "be that parent" and a lack of finding resources, I found it difficult to find support for my son that made sense to me.
Reading Dr. Rosen's "It's All In The Head", I had so many AHA moments. Then I looked back at the pictures of him as a small child and spotted the distortions in his skull and body that the book shows and explains. 
I do not hesitate to keep copies of this book around for friends, trying to give them a resource I did not have. it helps support my friends when professionals don't see or agree with observations my friends are making about their own children. Amazing stuff, this book. I wish it had been around when my son was younger.
Thank you, Drs. Rosen and Watson"

"My son was born after a precipitous labor. He had severe lip and tongue ties. We were referred by a hospital lactation specialist to have a laser revision done. Although he was able to nurse, it took him ages to empty the breast, leading to mastitis. His eczema led us to use scratch leaves, not wanting to put chemicals on his cradle cap. Without us knowing, under the watch of his pediatrician, he was failing to meet milestones like sitting up on his own and did not have a strong cross crawl before he learned to walk for a year. His symptoms (including sleep) worsened, and at age two, we noticed his speech was not continuing to grow at the rate at which it did during the first year.
He was three years and eight months old, and had been in occupational therapy for a year when he was first seen by Dr. Rosen, who explained the differences between normal and common development for us. After an intensive summer program seeing Dr. Rosen, and making changes to his diet (removing gluten and pasteurized dairy fortified with Vitamins D and A), most of his retained primitive reflexes were integrated.
At age seven, our son has been discharged from occupational and speech therapies. He enjoys horseback riding, swimming, and playing with his friends at his Waldorf school. It has been a long journey to course correct what could have been recognized and treated by a skilled chiropractor after birth. From protecting against over revision of tongue tie, to evaluating for reflux, from which which my younger son suffered—and ended up with a flat head from sleeping upright as well as behavior symptoms from a sphenoid imbalance— Dr. Rosen’s course will help the lay person to recognize the cranial distortions and subsequent patterns which develop. I encourage you to take the time to devote yourself to this course as the materials. I promise you will save those you love and care for, much time, energy, and effort in course correcting down the road. I wish it had been available to me for the birth of my children."
