Rational Cranial Osteopathy Part. 2 – September 12th and 13th, 2020

The Ontario Academy of Progressive Osteopathy is very proud to host Dr. Fred Mitchell Jr. and Kai Mitchell as they offer their version of cranial osteopathic technique and concept called ‘Rational Cranial Osteopathy’. Dr. Fred Mitchell Jr. was involved in osteopathic research many years ago, and has continually refined and added to his osteopathic offerings since that time. Refining his father’s pioneering work on Muscle Energy Technique, and applying the same logic and rigour to cranial osteopathy, Dr. Mitchell Jr. will be conducting Rational Cranial Osteopathy as a series of two courses of two days each. The class is open to osteopathic practitioners and students who have previously studied cranial osteopathy.

Early Registration (before Saturday, August 29th, 2020) (non-diploma students): $585.00
Regular Registration (after Sunday, August 30th, 2020) (non-diploma students): $625.00

Travell/Strain/Counterstrain – Canceled due to Covid-19, has been rescheduled to spring 2021.

Dr. Travell defined a Trigger Point as “a hyperirritable spot in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taut band. The spot is tender when pressed and can give rise to characteristic referred pain, motor dysfunction, and autonomic phenomena.

Counterstain is a system of diagnosis and treatment that considers the dysfunction to be a continuing, inappropriate strain reflex, which is inhibited by applying a position of mild strain in the direction exactly opposite to that of the reflex; this is accomplished by specific directed positioning about the point of tenderness to achieve the desired therapeutic response.

 

This class will tie together the two different systems into a complimentary system of assessment and treatment through the Osteopathic concepts and philosophy.

 

At the conclusion of the presentation, the participant should be able to:

  1. Identify the concepts and components of somatic dysfunction that are involved in the Travell Trigger points and Counterstrain points.
  2. Differentiate between normal and abnormal biomechanical function of the musculoskeletal system.
  3. Formulate a working knowledge of how Travell Trigger points and Counterstrain affects the overall biomechanics and, use this model in organizing an assessment and treatment plan.
  4. Assess the implications of complex somatic dysfunction in the same areas in order to provide appropriate treatment.
  5. Apply Manual Techniques to change the areas of somatic dysfunction.

 

Dates: April 30 – May 3, 2020

Price: $1300.00

Complexity Based Visceral Assessment Course – June 5-8, 2020

Taught by Dr. Bill Sutherland and Eric Sanderson. Consists of the methodology of assessing abdominal organ’s position. It’s not like it seems like in the books I’m afraid to say. Day four of the course involves verification of your assessment using ultrasound. A not to be missed course and one of the most important courses of the entire OAoPO program.

This course features a compelling combination of classical osteopathic concepts and indirect technique.

AN OSTEOPATHIC APPROACH TO BENNETT’S NEUROVASCULAR REFLEXES – September 24 – 27, 2020

In this class, the philosophy of the treatment for disorders of neurovascular physiology and appropriate reflex patterns will be presented. The effects of autonomic hypertonicity on the neurovascular systems will be discussed with emphasis on the problems created by tissue hypoxia.

The class will utilize lectures and hands-on guided labs to understand how vasomotor treatment techniques of aberrant feedback loops can restore proper neurovascular physiology and systemic function.

 

By the end of this course, the student should be able to design and implement approaches to various dysfunctions of the neurovascular systems in a successful manual practice.

 

At the conclusion of the presentation, the participant should be able to:

  1. Identify the concepts and components Neurovascular Reflexes.
  2. Differentiate between normal and abnormal dysfunctions that can impair certain autonomic deregulation.
  3. Formulate a working knowledge of the Neurovascular reflexes for  assessment and developing a treatment  plan.
  4. Assess the autonomic implications of somatic dysfunction in order to provide appropriate treatment.
  5. Apply Manual Therapy Techniques to change the areas of dysfunction.

 

Dates: September 24-27, 2020

Price:$1300.00

*Please note that a $150.00 deposit is required at registration to reserve your spot. Your registration is not complete without this deposit.
