Obstetrics and Osteopathy
Saturday, May 26, 2012 at 9:00 AM - Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 5:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Dr Stephen Sandler is the leading osteopath working in the obstetric field. In this course he brings together years of practical experience with his doctoral research into physiological changes in pregnancy, and ways that these can be supported.
The course introduces participants to the changes in maternal physiology during pregnancy, and the potential to use these changes to better effect in osteopathic practice. The ventilatory and cardiovascular systems are examined, and practical sessions used to develop techniques and treatments for the ribs, diaphragm and mediastinum, and associated muscles of respiration.
The course explores weight gain and the link between kidneys, the pre-renal fascia and the psoas muscles, and the diaphragm and T/L junction. Practical sessions will focus on changes to the uterus and breast tissues. The course also examines changes to the musculoskeletal system, postural changes and practical techniques to support the pelvis and lumbar spine.
Please note; this course is designed for qualified osteopaths, who must be registered with the GOsC.

British School of Osteopathy (BSO)
The British School of Osteopathy (BSO) is the UK’s oldest and largest school of osteopathy. Located at the heart of central London’s cultural and commercial life, the BSO is easily accessible via major transport networks. In 2010, the BSO was shortlisted in the Charity of the Year (income £1m+) category of the Charity Times awards.
Since 2008 the BSO has offered a Master of Osteopathy degree – an integrated undergraduate master’s programme validated by the University of Bedfordshire. The course has recognised qualification status which allows graduates to apply for registration with the General Osteopathic Council, a legal requirement for anyone practicing as an osteopath in the UK.
The BSO also has a pioneering osteopathic research department supporting research at all levels, including undergraduate. It houses one of the best osteopathic libraries in the world, consulted by health care practitioners worldwide.
