Eleven registered Osteopaths attended my presentation which was entitled “The Effect of Jaw Problems on the Rest of the Body”.The programme was in the usual format starting with a 10 minute video made by Dr Brendan Stack demonstrating how a dental appliance can be used to treat movement disorders (Tourettes etc). This was followed by a Power Point slideshow demonstrating the link between crooked teeth, airway, posture, cranial strains, etc. 

A table demonstration followed showing models, appliances and literature. A second Power Point slideshow “The Orthodontic/ Osteopathy Connection” completed the talk. This covered early recognition of developing crowding and the various approaches to treatment. The Damon System, Myobraces, Orthotropics and other Dento-Facial Orthopaedic appliances were discussed

A copy of the new Cranio UK journal was donated for the BSO library. Several delegates requested digital copies to be sent by email.

The current website will be updated by the end of the year –
