Cranial Mobilization II
This second level course will consist of a continuation of the specific evaluation and treatment of the cranial complex focusing further on honing your skill level that will allow you to treat deeper cranial structures as well as specific sutural articulations. Time will also be allocated for practicing and refining evaluation techniques and strategies to hone in more specifically on the more primary lesions.
This course will cover the theoretical and practical-lab application of the following topics: Sutherland's venous sinus series; release for the coronal, sphenoid lesser wings, sphenoid greater wings, and occipitomastoid sutures; temporal compactions; use of opposite physiologic movements of structures for release facilitation; the 3 diaphragms; sacroiliac ligament release; and more.
- Understand the ongoing role of the Primary Respiratory Mechanism (PRM) in diagnosis and treatment
- Further develop palpation skills for maximum effectiveness in evaluation and treatment
- Perform drift-dialogue-motion testing with increasing proficiency as a means of evaluation
- Further develop the concept of lesion hierarchy and priority for treatment
- Understand and perform Sutherland's venous sinus series to assist with drainage of the cranium and improve vitality
- Perform cranial sutural releases involving the sphenoid, frontal, parietal, temporal and occiput
- Perform an evaluation of the temporal complex with increased aptitude and proficiency to provide for localization of the primary lesion
- Provide an appropriate level of treatment, according to the specific diagnostic findings and immediate tissue response of the patient, to create a positive therapeutic response
- Perform a re-evaluation of the specific diagnostic findings to determine the effectiveness of your treatment
- Appropriately plan for the next treatment using the results of your re-evaluation and the response of the patient
