Event Description

The arterial system is regulated by the autonomic nervous system.  The arteries can show a lack of distensabilty/mobility when there is a retained tension in the vessel walls. In this class, participants will evaluate the mobility of the abdominal organs, then palpate and evaluate the arteries that supply those organs. When the organ is moved in such a way that the arterial pulsation to the organ is improved, it is held for 20 seconds, resulting in improved visceral function.

Participants will palpate, evaluate and treat the following structures: abdominal aorta, spleen and splenic artery, stomach, left and right gastric arteries, gastro mental artery, liver, gall bladder and common and proper hepatic arteries, pancreas, duodenum and pancreaduodenal artery, small intestine, superior mesenteric artery, large intestine, colic arteries, kidneys, renal arteries, inferior mesenteric, aortic bifurcations, common iliac arteries, internal iliac arteries, external iliac arteries, uterine artery, and internal pudendal artery.

This is an intermediate level course.
