Patients affected by Post- and Long-Covid are common in practice life in these current times. In this one-day course we will explore the research and understanding of the pathophysiology of prolonged Covid. In particular its effects on the circulatory and respiratory systems, as well as other affected organs such as the liver, CNS and viscera, as well as recognising the importance of the Vascular Endothelium. We will explore specific treatment approaches to all these areas that can assist recovery from Covid and support a return to health in our patients.This will be a mixed day of lectures, practicals and discussions led by an experienced Faculty team. We will also be collating research from a variety of sources on the effects of Covid-19, and especially Post- and Long-Covid effects. All this will be happening in the beautiful city of Bath, so why not combine work and have some enjoyable leisure time as well? This course is suitable for any osteopath who has taken SCCO Module 2 or its equivalent.
SCCO Course Providers: All SCCO courses are run by a resident Course Director, who is an Osteopath and a member of the SCCO Faculty. Pathway courses are delivered by SCCO Faculty and may be supported by guest speakers. Short courses are usually delivered by a visiting guest lecturer. SCCO Faculty members all hold recognised osteopathic qualifications but may not be GOSC registered osteopaths.
