Event Description

Course Description
This course will explore the traditional osteopathic thought, approach and technique of Carl McConnell, DO, a premier osteopathic clinician who, at the time of his death, was thought to best have understood Dr. Still’s teaching. The course is designed to lead participants through approaches requiring increasing palpatory appreciation for precision, specificity and anatomical localization. McConnell understood the osteopathic lesion differently than we currently understand it, which greatly influenced his application and choice of technique. Central to his thought was identifying and treating the “key lesion.” These concepts will be explored in this experientially driven course. This is an advanced course intended for experienced clinicians, but all skill levels will benefit from the principles of palpatory precision and discussion of osteopathic philosophy and art.

Prerequisite
Registrants must have an understanding of osteopathic manipulative medicine.
