Fascial Approach to the Thoracic Viscera: A Basic Course

November 9, 2018 - November 11, 2018

This course is an introductory course in visceral techniques to the thorax and thoracic viscera. Attendees will explore traditional osteopathic concepts of ventral technique as they apply to the thoracic viscera, ribs and anterior neck. Emphasis will be placed on physical examination, functional anatomy, and the anatomical relationships between diaphragm, ribs, sternum, thoracic spine and cervical spine, to the base of the skull, particularly as they relate to fascial continuity. Included will be discussion of the autonomic nervous system, vascular flow and lymphatic drainage.

Attendees will come away with improved confidence in physical examination, direct and indirect approaches to the ribs and thoracic viscera, and lymphatic techniques. Integration of visceral (ventral) techniques with spinal (dorsal) and cranial techniques will be emphasized at the conclusion.

This is an intermediate level course.
