Introduction to Osteopathic Diagnosis & Treatment of Low Back Pain
April 17, 2019

The Canadian Institute of Osteopathic Therapy

INTRODUCTION TO OSTEOPATHIC DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF LOW BACK PAIN

This is a 3 hour workshop for therapists interested in gaining an insight into the Osteopathic Approach to the treatment of lower back pain. 

INTRODUCTION AND SCOPE
There exists a high incidence and prevalence of medical clinical consultations due to vertebral column dysfunctions in general and to the lumbopelvic region in particular; in fact, its approach and management demands an extensive and methodical analysis of the different and multiple structures in association to these conditions. 

Successful evaluation , differential diagnosis and treatment of the different structures  entails an accurate understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics and pathomechanics. The lumbar region somatic dysfunctions as well as the myofascial chain dysfunctions  will have their place in our examination and assessment. A special approach will also be given to some visceral organs, such as the intestines, the kidneys and the gynecological tract, which can also trigger or be responsible for the maintenance and chronicity of these clinical conditions.

Treatment of low back pain conditions can be complex and confusing based upon the multitude of different tissues associated with these areas. By utilizing a holistic, osteopathic approach, we  focus on a problem-solving method to accurately and successfully evaluate and fix these painful and invalidating conditions.

Included in this three-hour workshop is a short overview of the most common clinical conditions in which osteopathic therapeutic intervention is indicated. Evaluation and treatment schemes to promote a successful outcome will also be illustrated.

Attendees will  develop an osteopathic overview of the evaluation and treatment of low back pain,  with diagnosis and application of  osteopathic techniques.

 GENERAL PURPOSES AND GOALS
To providing anatomical and neurophysiological basic knowledge that is intimately related to low back pain conditions, as well as physiopathological and pathomechanical clinical views.

To allowing attendees to identify  dysfunctions through osteopathic manual clinical assessment and their interrelationship with clinical findings.

PROGRAM AND CONTENTS

  • Review of the anatomical structure of the lumbopelvic region.
  • Assessment of referred pain of the different soft tissues of the lumbar spine and sacroiliac areas.
  • Anatomy and Pathophysiology of the autonomic nervous system according to its implications with the low back pain.

MLD The One Day Refresher
September 13, 2019

Rhythm Massage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage For Your Everyday Clinical Practice

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a highly specialized technique that can be used to treat many injuries and pathologies.

It can be performed as a preventative technique that bolsters our bodies' ability to rejuvenate and resist all types of stress.

MLD not only stimulates the vital functions of the skin, tissues and internal organs, but also serves to eliminate cellular waste and stimulate the parasympathetic relaxation response inhibiting muscle tonus and pain.

It provides an excellent tool for massage therapists when regular massage is contraindicated.

This unique training course covers the many dimensions of Manual Lymphatic Drainage:

  • All areas of the body will be reviewed and students will be provided with an understanding of the lymphatic system and the implications and complications that are associated with MLD.
  • Illustration for students from a clinical perspective on how to achieve complete evacuation of lymph nodes and thus achieve complete drainage to specific areas.
  • Review of current research in the area and the efficacy of MLD within this research
  • Demonstration of exact area specific sequences including amount of pressure applied and examination of "0 pressure" points within these

By the end of this single day you will have reviewed all sequences and revisited the essential theory as well. This extra study day will inform your practice, refine your skills and build your confidence in the delivery and execution of an excellent MLD treatment.
