British School of Osteopathy, London. Refresher Course, 7 September 2014

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 new version has come about as a result of the merging of the British Society for the Study of Cranio-Mandibukar Disorders with the Cranio Group. The current website will be updated by the end of the year –  www.jawache.com

The British School of Osteopathy

10 November.  17 qualified osteopaths attended this weekend Refresher Course. The presentation which I gave, entitled “The Effects of Jaw Problems on the Rest of the Body”, seemed to be well received. I started by showng a 10 minute video clip of Dr Brendan Stack’s video on movement disorders. The rest of the presentation was divided into two sections. The frst outlined the Orthodontic/Osteopathy Connection and this was followed by the Temporo-Mandibular Joint(TMJ)/Osteopathy Connection.

The aim of this presentation was to equip the delegates with sufficient knowledge so as to be able to advise  their patients with regard to orthodontic/dental orthopaedics problems and Temporo-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD). The video dramatically demonstrates the far reaching effect that jaw problems can have on the rest of the body. The links on my blogroll lists functional orthodontists (craniogroup.com & jawache.com) and further information about participating practitioners can be obtained by contacting Triple “O” (tripleodentallabs.com).
