DAY 1 (8 hours)
Presentation of the Osteopathic Mechanical Link concepts.
Physiology and pathology of the osteopathic lesion, the total lesion and the primary lesion. Tension tests, inhibitory balance tests and recoil.
Initiation to the practice of the recoil
Demonstration of a treatment of the spine and thorax.
Theory, demonstration and practice of the tests from the 1st and 2nd sequences of the OVP axis: occiput, cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, intraosseous sacrum and ilium.
Specific and analytical tests of the vertebral segment (vertebral and disk lesions). Treatment by recoil of the lumbar spine posteriorly and anteriorly (anterolisthesis).
DAY 2 (8 hours)
Specific and analytical tests of the cervical vertebrae. Treatment by recoil of the cervical spine posteriorly and anteriorly.
Theory, demonstration and practice of the 3rd sequence of the OVP axis: articular sacrum, sacral dura, filum terminale, articular and intraosseous coccyx, ischia.
Treatment by recoilof the 3rd sequence of the OVP axis.
Theory, demonstration and practice of the posterior thorax and the scapula. Tension tests, balance tests and treatment by recoil.
DAY 3 (8 hours)
Theory, demonstration, palpatory localisation and practice of the anterior thorax: sternum, articular and intraosseous clavicle, costal arches. Tension tests, balance tests and treatment by recoil.
Demonstration of a complete Osteopathic Mechanical Link treatment.
Summary and practical review of a complete treatment of the spine and the thorax.
