One Day Classes For Integrated Allied Health Professionals.

One day human anatomy classes from January 2019
We are pleased to be offering a series of one day anatomy classes, working on prosected cadavers. These are guided classes aimed at therapists who wish to gain a deeper understanding of various areas of the body.  They are specially prepared areas of the body and although there is no dissection component during these classes, there is plenty of opportunity to handle the specimens.

These specimens have been prepared using traditional anatomical approaches and so will have less of the fascial and connective tissue components that we like. We will however be showing videos and pictures of less prosected material, in order to give more clarity when considering related connective tissues.

Bring questions, debate, discussion and ideas to what are always lively and informative days.

4th April  Exploring soft tissues in a functional, clinical and treatment context in
relation to common injuries £200

This workshop aims to examine the relationship between presenting pain and anatomical evidence.  How much of what we see in clinic can be understood by the anatomy of the soft and connective tissues.  Do presenting pain levels and how the muscular tissues appear match up?

This one day will look at pain within various contexts and examine the anatomy of common soft tissue injuries, their locations and what else could be considered when addressing these areas.

5th April Endothoracic fascia – fascial compartments of the head, neck, shoulder and thorax including the TMJ £200

The complex arrangements of fascia in the thorax and its relationship to the diaphragm, heart and lungs as well as the continuity of the trachea and oesophagus will be examined and discussed.

Suspensory structures around the throat and mouth will be explored and the continuity of the compartments associated with the mouth, TMJ neck and head will be explored.  Movements of the jaw and their relationship to neck and shoulder dysfunction will also be discussed.

15th April Anatomy of lower back pain £200
AM: Spine, spinal cord and CNS
PM: Pelvis, postural support muscles and the pelvic floor

In this busy day we will aim to examine as many areas and ideas surrounding lower back pain as possible.  Whilst most of us will appreciate that lower back pain is rarely solely associated with the lower back, we will aim to construct a narrative that allows for other areas to be considered.

The morning session will discuss and examine the spine and central nervous system, including some elements of the brain.  In the afternoon we will examine the role, if there is one, of the abdomen in back pain and explore some of the ideas surrounding core stability and the pelvic floor.

1st May Pelvis and hips, fascia and function £200

So many attachments so little time.  The relationships around the hips and the muscles that attach from the femur to the inside of the pelvis are poorly described and difficult to treat.

Today we will find them and see what they look and feel like, before discussing ideas around function and how the continuity that surrounds them might best be explored clinically and to good effect.
