AECC University College are pleased to be running the full Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioners series. You will need to book each seminar individually, the dates are as follows:

CCEP 1 - Advanced Principles of TMJ, Ribs, and Shoulder Girdle (Marni Capes) – 12-13 October 2019

CCEP 2 - Advanced Principles of Upper Extremity Adjusting (Marius Jensen) – 14-15 March 2020

CCEP 3 - Soft Tissue Methods for the Spine & Extremities (Jared Jensen) – 9-10 May 2020

CCEP 4 - Advanced Principles of Extremity Rehabilitation (Marius Jensen) – 17-18 October 2020

CCEP 5 - Advanced Principles of Lower Extremity Adjusting (Kevin Hearon) – 6-7 March 2021

CCEP 6 - Introduction to Principles of Foot, Gait, and Orthotics (Dan Prince) – 8-9 May 2021

CCEP 7 - Global Assessment of the Extremities (John Downes) – 2-3 October 2021


The Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP) seminar series presents practical objective-based solutions for treating the extremities. The seminar series teaches how diagnosis and treatment is made simple through understanding the biomechanical functions of each joint.Chiropractic often stresses the importance of nerve interference in the spine, but neglects that it may also occur in the extremities. This simplified process utilizes muscle tests as indicators for adjusting, providing instant feedback for patients when their strength returns immediately. While these seminars do teach some of the “textbook” information behind the process, the real value is the “hands-on” approach that will teach you how to efficiently implement these methods into your care the next day . . . and with little more than your hands, you can get started without a huge investment.


CCEP 3  - Soft Tissue Methods for the Spine & Extremities

Presented by Jared Jensen

Course Synopsis

To understand that treatment of the human structure requires an approach that encompasses the total structure. Areas beyond the articulation must be evaluated and altered for complete healing to occur. This course expresses the relationship of soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments and especially the fascial system) to the function and dysfunction of the spine and extremities. It develops the concept that the articulations and soft tissues of the body are directly related and continuous throughout the body. Soft Tissue Methods introduces hands-on methods to treat peripheral neural and vascular entrapments, fascial, muscle, tendon and ligamentus restrictions.
