Program overview, objectives and learning outcomes
This course is already frequently taught with a great succes (Paris, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Lille, Dijon, Switzerland, Belgium, Danemark, Germany, Montreal…). It is a synthesis from thousands of hours invested over the last 15 years. The learners will develop clinical skills and experience through practical workshops, videos and masterclass. They will also develop medical language and a scientific insight through an exhaustive literature review.
In other word it’s a unic opportunity to gain competencies to optimize osteopathic interventions and outcomes. The course objectives focus on the clinical utility in each section.
Plagiocephaly incidence can reach 48% (Mawji 2012)1. Plagiocephaly and torticollis is known as the first primary reason for peadiatric consultation in osteopathy (Morin and Aubin 2014)2. Furthermore, osteopaths face the challenge to achieve the best results with as few interventions as possible (to be cost and time effective).
This course includes pratical workshop to enhance and specialized their palpation skills through specific techniques. Using case studies (follow up from the last 10 years) and hundred of pictures, we will address the complexity of plagiocephaly, torticollis and associated conditions in relation to neuromotor development. We believe that cranial asymmetries are the consequences of so many forces applied to the whole infant before, during and after birth and therefore we emphasize the need to treat the infant in its globality to harmonize bodyworkshop offersd literature systems and promote optimal well being.
