What is Quadrant Analysis?

Between "pop and pray" and diagnostic based treatments, there exists a vast clinical gray area where most of our patient care lives. Quadrant Analysis helps you navigate that space.Quadrant Analysis combines a subclassification system with practical biomechanics. 

It simplifies patient assessment, breaking the body down into traceable patterns which practitioners can utilize to build successful treatment approaches.

In this course, practitioners will learn:

  • Subclassification

    How to utilize subclassifications during assessment to arrive at a more effective diagnosis

  • Regional Interdependence Markers

    Regional interdependence is real and somewhat predictable (once you know what to look for)

  • Confidence in Treatment Approaches

    With QA concepts, you can more confidently understand and apply a variety of treatment approaches

Course Instructor

Rob Pape, DC is heading into his 25th year of active practice. He is an innovator in clinical evaluation and treatment instruction. He created Quadrant Analysis, which combines a subclassification system with theoretical, practical biomechanics. Quadrant Analysis improves and simplifies patient assessment, breaking the body down into traceable patterns which chiropractors can utilize to get better and faster patient results
