New Course: New frontieres in organ therapy: Diagnosis and treatment of states of organ activity with Peter Levin
Date: May 26 – May 28, 2022
Treating states of organ activity
The role of organ character and physiologic activity in Osteopathy
The seminar will face the new challenges in Visceral Osteopathy. Activity, not function, is at the heart of an osteopathic approach to organs. Organ physiology describes different tissues in states of activity; Osteopathy should be based in such a physiologic understanding.
We look at the character differences between hollow and vascular organs and establish a sound system of assessing the main mechanical expressions of organ activity: elasticity, volume, motion, form and position. A venous sponge like the liver will need a different approach than the mucosa-dominate small intestine. As well as the arterial sponge of the spleen will show important differences compared to the venous liver.
Following the logic offered by organ physiology, we develop an osteopathic equivalent of the three main stages of activity: rested activity, hyper- and hypo-activity. One of the challenges we are facing is the integration of the osteopathic system of function/dysfunction in the physiological system of states of organ activity. The seminar offers ways to treat the two main issues in organ activity: persistent hyperactivity and hypoactivity.
