Workshop "Manipulations, the next level of understanding and applications"
To the general public, osteopathic care is associated with manipulations and often patients call their osteopath 'bone doctor' or 'joint cracker'. This workshop provides insights into the working mechanisms and potential effects of a manipulation, explained in a multi-disciplinary, accessible way. Manipulations are discussed from a safety point of view and starting from the contra-indications, the indications are explored, providing the participant understanding why an osteopath manipulates, leading the participant far beyond just the release of blockages and into the osteopathic way of thinking. The participant is guided through various approaches (eg. anatomy, neurology, neurophysiology and PENI), providing multiple pieces of a coherent manipulation puzzle. By following this workshop, the participant is able to rethink homeostasis and has insight in the use of a manipulation as a tool for allostatic regulation in physiology and pathophysiology. The transfer from providing knowledge into the application of the knowledge is made, so each participant has a direct applicable insight in the daily clinic of his or her profession. The scope of this workshop may be on manipulation, but the participant is submerged in the osteopathic way of thinking and linking, providing a different perspective on clinical care and therapeutic approach, even for therapist that do not use manipulations in their clinical work. Touching a patient will never be the same again.
