This course is an opportunity for people to revise and practice the systems testing procedures which all osteopaths learn. Since these procedures are seldom needed in ordinary day to day practice, you may find you've become a little "rusty".

There will be an opportunity to cover the theory involved in cardiovascular and respiratory systems examinations and to practice each exam. We will also aim to cover cranial nerve exams in a similar way. There will be time to cover another system, which the delegates can choose on the day. The amount of time we spend on any topic will depend on the needs of the course delegates, the course leader will be happy to tailor the sessions to the wishes of the group.

Practical information

Delegates should be advised to bring appropriate clothing for the practical elements, and also to bring their Clinical methods equipment, i.e. Stethoscope, Sphygmomanometer, Penlight, Tuning forks (128 and 512 Hz), Neuro testing pins etc.
