This will be an exploration of the innate wisdom and potency of the living human through lecture and hands-on experiences. We will address perspectives of balanced ligamentous and balanced membranous tension with an emphasis on the structure, function, and posture of the living human, and their effects on health.
Our goal is to develop a working understanding of the self-correcting mechanism, utilizing principles elucidated by William G. Sutherland, DO and passed down to us by our mentor Anne Wales, DO. We will also discuss and demonstrate applications of this understanding to facilitate the powers within the patient's body. Physicians with all levels of experience will gain something from this weekend.
Course Prerequisites: Osteopathy and Osteopathy in the Cranial Field are part of the practice of medicine. The ASSSG's course is designed to teach the integration of Sutherland's techniques into the practice of medicine. This course assumes a strong background of education and training in the biomedical sciences and in the clinical observation and treatment of pathology in patients. In order for students to learn this scope of practice in a comprehensive fashion and in order for them to apply this form of practice in a manner that is both safe and appropriate, it is crucial that they have received or be in the process of receiving a broad and comprehensive level of medical educational training. Such training should include two years of didactic training in the basic and clinical biomedical sciences as taught in accredited (AOA, COCA, or LCME) medical and ADA-accredited dental schools. Such training should also include three years of intensive training in approved clinical teaching settings, including extensive training in hospital settings where students are exposed to addressing the diagnosis and treatment of patients who manifest a broad range, both in type and severity, of clinical pathology. This is the level of education and training that leads to a license for the unlimited scope and practice of medicine, as defined by medical licensing boards in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Applicants who are graduates of osteopathic educational programs outside of the United States who practice and reside outside the United States and who either possess unlimited licensure for the practice of medicine or are members in good standing of a national osteopathic registry or the appropriate governmental licensing authority in their own country will be considered for admission to this course on a case-by-case basis. Spaces for such applicants are extremely limited.
