Treating Migraines & Upper Cervical Dysfunctions
In this two day workshop, we will address the Upper Cervical Dysfunctions that develop as a result of Cranial Traumas. You will learn how to identify the symptom profile of Upper Cervical Disorders, behavioral signs, physiological causes & mechanical symptoms, the C0-C1 cervical junction, and how upper cervical dysfunctions lead to body imbalances. Learn Osteopathic Treatment Protocols for realigning the C0 - C1 junction, increasing mobility of the atlas, as well as complete protocols for Cervical - Thoracic region.
Treating & Managing Post Concussion Syndrome
This two day Workshop will teach you the Mechanics of Post Concussion Syndrome and its associated Migraines, including Frontal Impact & Side Impact Injuries, the Coup-Contre-Coup Effect, torsions & how they affect the Spheno-Basilary Symphesis (SBS), shockwaves & how they impair the flow of Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF). Patient evaluation & identifying the multi-factorial symptom profile and recovery potential of Post Concussion syndrome will be practiced and reviewed. You will learn Osteopathic treatment Techniques & Protocols for Acute and Chronic Cranial Trauma cases and associated Vascular Migraines , with special emphasis on patient management for maximum recovery.
Treating Vestibular Dysfunctions and the ENT System: Vertigo, Sinus, & TMJ
This two day Wokshop will address the most common problem areas related to ENT & vestibular disorders: Part I will address treating sinusitis with osteopathy, identifying various types of sinusitis & techniques to improve sinus drainage via the ethmoid bone & spheno-palatine ganglion. Learn how cranial dysfunctions contribute to TMJ dysfunction, and basic treatment protocols for correcting TMJ dysfunction. Part II will progress to more advanced treatment protocols including correcting trigeminal nerve impingement in TMJ syndrome due to dental work & due to childhood developmental disorders, and how myofascial chain links contribute to with TMJ syndrome. We will then learn how the mechanics of vestibular disorders & inner ear dysfunction can cause cause Vertigo, Nystagmus, Meuniere's disease & practice treatment protocols for correcting vestibular disorders and their implication in the entire ENT system.

* you want to review treating the SSB (occiput & sphenoid) that drives the entire cranial mechanism *
* you are not sure how to increase the amplitude of the Cranial Rhythmic Impulse *
* you need help identify classic patterns of cranial dysfunction *
* you can identify torsions and strains but are unsure where to start with your treatment *
* when you perform a CV4 you are unsure of your hand position *
