In the second year of the program, the concepts of kinetic chains are explored in-depth. Within that exploration, there are continued studies in osteopathic assessment, induction and inhibition testing, discussions on how kinetic chains are constructed, as well as the different types of chains.
During the second year, all the superficial and deep fascia of the body are covered, and we introduce the first cranial courses.
Our approach to the connective tissue and the nervous system is a well-thought-out continuous approach, in which the methodology for all of the connective tissue in the body is the same, and the differences lie not in the location of the tissue, but in the type of tissue. In OAoPO, the “technique” is dependent on the tissue’s anatomy and physiology; we believe “what” the student is addressing is as important, if not more important, than “where.” Terms like “cranial work” or “visceral work” are seen not only as redundant, but also misleading. Our students learn about the behaviour of the connective tissue and nervous system, and how to address their very complex relationship.
All materials and books are provided in our online classroom, including a reference book list. Almost all material for the duration of 5 years will be provided in an online format as to enable students access dozens of resources and materials whenever they need to.
