Dysfunctions of the digestive tract and interaction with the musculoskeletal system.
Interaction of lumbar discopathy, sliding vertebra L4/L5, L5/S1, scoliotic thoracolumbar and lumbar deformity, hip and shoulder conditions in connection with the peritoneum, diaphragm, stomach, duodenum, small and large intestine.
Introduction to the treatment concept of Visceral Therapy (anamnesis – diagnosis-sector treatment – lesion chain).
Didactic learning of required theoretical background.
- Anatomy, physiology, topography and pathological restriction pattern of the digestive tract, peritoneum and diaphragm in interaction to the musculoskeletal system
- Basics of visceral anamnesis for the digestive tract in correlation to orthopaedic diagnosis
- Diagnosis to verify the anamnesis and neurodynamic diagnosis
Treatment techniques and patient advice
- Practical learning of treatment techniques for different restrictions of the digestive tract, peritoneum and diaphragm
- Working out the lesion chain on topographic, physiological/functional, sympathetic or parasympathetic basis in connection to the digestive tract and to orthopaedic symptoms such as discopathy, sliding vertebra (L4/L5, L5/S1), scoliotic thoracolumbar and lumbar deformity, hip and shoulder conditions
- Learning active exercises for the different organs, which the patient can practice at home
- Learning about nutrition to be able to provide advice based on nutrition physiology and metabolic processes
- Psychosomatic which is based on physiology and pathology of the organ system, their deep meaning and how to work with the emotions by using therapeutic verbal dialogue
At the end of the course, participants will be able to apply the newly learned techniques in their daily practice.
