Osteopathic Medicine

Pathway to Fellowship: Module 3

m5

“Mein Ziel ist, den Osteopathen zum Philosophen zu machen und ihn auf den Felsen der Vernunft zu setzen. Dann werde ich mir keine Gedanken machen müssen, wie ich Details über die Behandlung sämtlicher Organe des menschlichen Körpers niederschreibe, da er derart qualifiziert sein wird, dass er ein großes Maß an Wissen besitzt über das, was alle möglichen Variationen von Form und Bewegung hervorgerufen hat.”

A. T.  Still – Osteopathy, Research and Practice

Dr. Stills osteopathische Vision war ein vollständiges medizinisches System und er behandelte alles, von akuten Infektionen bis hin zu chronischen Erkrankungen. Dazu gehörten sowohl muskulo-skelettale Probleme als auch interne Probleme, die sich auf die Organe auswirken.

Über die letzten 140 Jahre hat die Osteopathie nach und nach viel ihres holistischen Behandlungsansatzes verloren und konzentriert sich heutzutage vor allem auf die muskuloskelettalen Störungen.

Dieser Kurs führt uns zurück zu unseren osteopathischen Wurzeln wie A. T. Still sie vermittelt hat und beschäftigt sich mit dem osteopathischen Vermächtnis von Still, Sutherland, Littlejohn und anderen.

In diesem Kurs werden nicht tiefgreifende Pathologien abgedeckt, sondern er hilft uns zu entdecken, wie wir die Philosophie und Prinzipien der osteopathischen Behandlung bei Zuständen anwenden können, die unsere innere Gesundheit beeinträchtigen.

Es werden für jedes Organsystem eine Auswahl von Behandlungsansätzen erforscht und wie unser inneres Gebiet ein Teil unseres muskuloskelettalen Systems ist bzw. in Bezug zu ihm steht. Dieser Kurs wird sowohl Deine Wissensbasis als auch Deine Palpationsfertigkeit verbessern. Wie wir bereits wissen ist ein gutes anatomisches Wissen in Verbindung mit einer akkuraten Palpation der Schlüssel zu Diagnose und Behandlung.

Dieser Kurs ist wahrlich holistisch und wird Deinen klinischen Ansatz in der Praxis erweitern und beflügeln.
