Miserable Baby Part 1 – 8th March 2020 BOOK COURSE

The Miserable Baby PART ONE
Suckling, Feeding & Digestive Disorders in the Newborn & Baby 

THIS COURSE IS SUITABLE FOR OSTEOPATHS, CRANIOSACRAL PRACTITIONERS & PHYSIOTHERAPISTS

Possibly the most common early life complaint is that of the ‘miserable baby’ (and desperate parent!) – babies who are unsettled and inconsolable, with apparent abdominal discomfort. Variously diagnosed as failure to latch, tongue tie, lip tie, reflux, trapped wind, cows milk protein allergy – this course aims to give insight into the immature digestive system from birth and during the first year of life.

Emphasis is on evaluation, treatment, practical management and advice rather than in depth anatomy & physiology which participants can study at their leisure. Guidelines for further study will be given at the lecture

 

Morning Session

Latching, sucking, swallowing – cranial base, jaw and tongue mechanics

    • Associated anatomy
    • Pathophysiology and mechanisms that may be implicated
    • Differential diagnosis and contra-indications
    • Current medical management
    • Advice and self help for parents

Practical sessions 1 & 2

Afternoon Session

Gastro-esophageal reflux, silent reflux, stomach & intestines

  • Pathophysiology and mechanisms that may be implicated
  • Differential diagnosis and contra-indications

Please wear loose and comfortable clothing. Full notes will be supplied during the lecture.
A 6.5 hour CPD certificate will be available 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 the musculoskeletal system.
  • Have a basic understanding of the Cranio-sacral approach (Sutherland, Upledger etc.) as some techniques require
    palpation of the Involuntary Mechanism.
