The Miserable Baby Part 3  – Dates for 2020 to be announced


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


Following on from our popular workshops ‘The Miserable Baby 1 & 2 where we covered treating feeding & digestive problems, and trauma from birth interventions, this workshop looks at a range of commonly encountered conditions in the first year of life. We explore related anatomy, pathophysiology and learn both direct & indirect manual techniques with exercises & advice for parents.

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.

Topics covered throughout the day:

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

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

Congenital Muscular Torticollis – definition, structural and neurological causes, current medical approach, manual treatment – techniques and exercise

Positional Plagiocephaly – definition and causes, differentiation from craniosynostosis, current medical treatments, cranial and global manual treatment approaches – techniques & exercises

Sadly we can’t use babies as models! However we will make good use of dolls and each other to practise techniques so please wear loose and comfortable clothing. Full notes, including photos of techniques, will be supplied during the lecture.

A 6 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 many techniques require palpation of the Involuntary Mechanism.
