This course explores the osteopathic concepts that underpin the support we can offer to couples who have difficulty conceiving. We will look in detail at how to interpret the clinical presentation of affected couples. We will re-familiarise ourselves with the relevant anatomical structures; pelvic organs, the autonomic nervous system, crucial blood vessels and obviously the treatment of these structures. Upon completion, osteopaths will be able to analyse the patients’ presentations as to the cause of their subfertility and clearly interpret the symptoms the couples are presenting with, categorising them into hormonal and structural reasons. The understanding of the interrelationship of stress, lifestyle, fat metabolism and hormones will be explored in detail and therefore inform treatment and management plans, specific to the individual patient. Patients will benefit from this enhanced understanding and approach, as the practitioner analyses more specifically the limitations and opportunities of osteopathic practice with regards their case. To support the patient further, knowledge and understanding of onward referral will be enhanced during the course. Patients will feel well supported through osteopathic treatment and further advice given during this rather stressful time in their lives.
