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.
Two pre-recorded lectures will be distributed two weeks prior to the course and will be actively discussed during the day.
Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided on this course.This course is suitable for any osteopath who has taken SCCO Module 2 or its equivalent.
‘ On the first running of the course, we finished the day by the 4 faculty each treating a volunteer who was still feeling the effects of having Covid. The individual treatment demonstration proved to be extremely instructive for the watching course participants, and became another highlight of the day.’
