This course is an opportunity for people to revise and practice the systems testing procedures which all osteopaths learn. Since these procedures are seldom needed in ordinary day to day practice, you may find you've become a little "rusty".
There will be an opportunity to cover the theory involved in Abdominal, Lymphatic, Cardiovascular and Respiratory systems examinations and to practice each exam. We will also aim to cover both Sensory and Motor Neurological examinations and also consider Cranial Nerve exams. The amount of time we spend on any topic will depend on the needs of the course delegates, the course leader will be happy to tailor the sessions to the wishes of the group. Delegates should be advised to bring appropriate clothing for the practical elements, and also to bring their Clinical methods equipment, i.e. Stethoscope, Sphygmomanometer, Penlight, Tuning forks (128 and 512 Hz), Neuro testing pins etc.
