This is a ‘stand alone’ course – Miserable Baby Parts 1-3 can be done in any order

THIS COURSE IS SUITABLE FOR OSTEOPATHS, CRANIOSACRAL PRACTITIONERS & PHYSIOTHERAPISTS WITH CRANIOSACRAL SKILLS

This hands on workshop considers a range of commonly encountered conditions in the first year of life. We explore related anatomy, pathophysiology, current medical approaches and parental advice,  management and exercises.l

As with all our courses, emphasis is on treatment, practical management and advice rather than in depth anatomy & physiology which participants can study at their leisure. 

The course comes with fully illustrated notes, with visuals especially prepared for the lecture.

The Newborn Foot – including examination, common conditions encountered in the first year, current medical approaches, exercise & advice.

Practical sessions 1

Lacrimal Duct Obstruction – anatomy and development of the tear ducts, current medical treatments,  advice and exercises.

 Please wear loose and comfortable clothing. Full notes will be supplied during the lecture.

A 6.5 hour CPD certificate will be given at the end of the day.

This in an Intermediate Level workshop. To get the most out of this course you should:
  • Be able to take a Paediatric case history and understand your legal & professional requirements for treating infants.
  • Understand the basic physiological processes of birth and how this may effect cranial & body mechanics.
  • Have an understanding of the cranio-sacral approach (Sutherland, Upledger etc.) as some techniques require palpation of the Involuntary Mechanism.
