Masqueraders - Video & Audiobook
Be up to date on the 10 most common tumors, childhood tumors and learn the clinical cluster of 4 signs, 100% sensitive for the presence of a tumor
Would you expect a client to come in and say?
'I have a tumor, please treat my pain!'
Unlikely. No they are more likely so to say,
'My knee has been sore the past couple of months. I may have knocked it while shifting home or playing soccer, not sure but the swelling just isn’t settling'
How and at what point in the clinical progression do you determine the swollen knee is actually a chondroblastoma?
This video presentation provides;
- Background information on the 10 most commonly diagnosed cancers and the 10 most fatal cancers. Given some assumptions, I will show you how to calculate on average, how many tumors will be coming through your clinic's doors every year presenting primarily as musculoskeletal complaints.
- A case study is then presented detailing the difficulties of determining the presence of an underlying tumor, especially when there has been a history of direct trauma.
- The third section of the video focuses on younger clients and tumors. Difficult to pick tumors in adults, children can be that much more clinically challenging. This section looks specifically at 2 types of benign and 2 types of malignant tumors.
- The final section synthesizes all the information, into a process of developing a healthy index of suspicion, guided by signs and symptoms. This section also details a clinical cluster of 4 signs that is 100% sensitive for the presence of a tumor.
As a bonus you also will receive a downloadable audiobook of the presentation to listen while cruising home or walking the dog.
