Add this to Calendar

Infant feeding issues are a clinical presentation for many osteopaths. SCTF of ANZ recognises this and has developed a 2-part program of theory and practice to help clinicians develop their practice in this clinically relevant area. Many of the techniques learnt on this course can be used in other areas of osteopathy such as TMJ disorders, headaches and digestive disorders.

Part 1 is online and will need to be finished at home before attending the practical day.

This will consider the relevant literature, osteopathic considerations and the anatomy of the child and mother. Most importantly the embryonic development of the orofacial structures neural organs and intestinal tract will be presented by Dr Brian Freeman, a prominent embryologist who is well known for his biodynamic approach to embryology. 

Part 2 is face to face in Hamilton, NZ on Saturday March 27th 2021.

Experienced pediatric osteopaths will present useful assessment and exercises for mother and baby in combination with other practical techniques in a maximum ratio of 1 tutor to 4 practitioners (1:4). Part 2 is open to registered osteopaths only. This program will give an overview of the relevant anatomy and theory to support a day of practice.
