The lecture will pay particular attention to describing the role of the pelvis as the dynamic foundation for the weight bearing of the body, its ability to sustain gravitational forces and enable dynamic stability during movement.

The role of genetic variation and the effect of degenerative changes will be examined, together with their profound effect on the morphology of the pelvis and its asymmetry of structure and function, both of which frequently makes for irrational diagnosis and treatment.

In the light of recent studies of spinal and pelvic movement using advanced kinematic 3D computed tomography and MRI imaging, questioning many of the most basic osteopathic theories of spinal mechanics and palpation findings, it has become clearer as to why subjective physical examination tests are of notoriously low inter and intra-observer reliability, sensitivity and specificity.

This webinar will attempt to point out the need, therefore, to fully appreciate the potential underlying abnormal morphology and pathology. It will emphasise, therefore, the need to avoid ‘bone-setting’ but rather, as Littlejohn emphasised, to appeal to the soft tissue attachments, via the use of minimally invasive articular technique, in order to avoid harm when attempting to restore pain-free, articular function of the pelvic articulations, in its complex coordination with the spinal column above.


ICO CONFERENCE Hendrik Vlek | 2019- The Lymphatics in Health and Disease
DESCRIPTION: 3 hours theoretical lecture on the Lymphatics by Hendrik Vlek. The osteopathic profession has long recognized the importance of the lymphatic system in maintaining health. This lecture runs through some of the latest research in the subject and contrast them with the biography of early osteopaths like John Martin Littlejohn.
