3 November – London School of Osteopathy

November 3, 2012 at 8:10 pm 3 comments

This was a return visit and my presentation was given to 5th year students and the emphasis was on the importance of an integrated approach to treatment.

My first talk was entitled “The Functional Orthodontic/Osteopathy Connection” and demonstrated the cranial strains associated with malocclusions, including the imbalance of the  maxilla & mandible.

The second talk was entitled “The Effects of Jaw Problems on the Rest of the  Body” and demonstrated such areas as airways,snoring, sleep apnoea,  OME, headaches, forward head posture, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction and movement disorders such as Tourettes, Torticollis and Parkinsons.

The presentation concluded with Dr Brendan Stack’s video on his treatment of Tourettes & Torticollis (Cervical Dystonia) patients treated with an oral splint.

    I found Helen Jones’ functional orthodontics lecture at the LSO very interesting and informative. Helen provided theoretical information and discussed it in terms of its practical application, with case studies and the latest research. I am looking forward to exploring this area further and incorporating it into my future practice.

    I’d like to echo the above comment by Zara. Very interesting lecture, and one that will provide further depth of skills/knowledge when treating patients.

    An extremely interesting and clinically useful lecture. I was impressed by Dr Jones’ holistic approach and the successful outcomes for her patients.
