Friday: Basic Visceral by Richard G. Schuster
November 10-12, 2017

American Academy of Osteopathy Event

Hosted at:
Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine
42 E. Lauren Rd., Stratford, NJ 08084


This is a basic course in visceral manipulation. Attendees will explore traditional osteopathic concepts of ventral technique, modern concepts of visceral motion, normalization of visceral motion through fascial planes, and treating visceral mobility and motility. Emphasis will be placed on physical examination, functional anatomy, and the anatomical relationships between the diaphragms, viscera, autonomic nervous system, vascular flow and lymphatic drainage. Attendees will come away with improved confidence in physical examination, direct and indirect approaches to visceral manipulation, and an ability to integrate visceral (ventral) techniques with spinal (dorsal) and cranial approaches. This is an intermediate level course.
