TOPICS OF DISCUSSION

John Sharkey – “Biotensegrity-Anatomy for the 21st Century: A body in peace from a body in pieces”

Join Clinical Anatomist John Sharkey for a somatic exploration infused with the science of biotensegrity. John’s presentations revolve around the unique interpretation of biotensegrity as “anatomy for the 21st Century” and are infused with a wholistic view of embryology.

 

Classical Clinical Anatomy is the ideal platform to demonstrate the flaws of current embryological thinking and yet point us in the direction of a new paradigm that does not require us to throw the baby out with the bathwater. It does, however, require us to retune our vision, our understanding and our appreciation of the connected oneness of all of us.

Embryological considerations inform our manual approaches and movement strategies as we explore the hierarchy, autonomy and connectiveness of our form. “From so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved” (Darwin. 1859 1st Edition: On the Origin of Species). This bespoke presentation for the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy will utilize cadaveric images and video content from John’s highly acclaimed Thiel soft-fixed full-body cadaver dissection courses held in Dundee University, Scotland.

Adam Houston – “Osteopathic Considerations in Treating the Athlete”

Kayte Armstrong – “The Equine Stifle – everything you Knee’d to know”

Form and function meet in a fascinating way in the leg of the horse.  In this session, we will look at what we know about the anatomy and function of the human knee, and compare  and apply this knowledge to the stifle (knee) of the equine patient.   The goal of this method of comparison is to set the stage for an approach to novel anatomy using a principle – based, osteopathic mind set.

This is a sneek peek look at the curriculum to be covered in the NEW Animal Osteopathy Certification course that the CAO will be releasing in 2019 for Professional Osteopathic Practitioners.
