ADVANCED TRAINING COURSE IN SPORTS OSTEOPATHY

3,660.00

The advanced training course in Sports Osteopathy will start in September 2021 and finish in February 2022. The training is organised in 5 face-to-face meetings and online webinars. Each session consists of 5 days of training, 30 days divided into 60 units for 240 hours of lectures.

Description

TARGET AUDIENCE

Will be admitted to the course only osteopaths qualified with schools recognized by the CSdO (Supreme Osteopathy Council) associations (AIMM, AMOI, FeSIOs, ROI, UPOI, AISO) and in possession of a professional liability insurance (mandatory requirement).

The course will have a minimum number of 14 students and a maximum number of 30 students.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

We aim to achieve the following objectives:

– to increase essential knowledge in physiotherapy and sports medicine to allow osteopaths to be part of a working team that manages athletes at competitive level,

– to increase specific knowledge on the application of the osteopathic treatment on the athlete through training delivered by experienced teachers who have worked for many years with high-level athletes,

– to become thoroughly acquainted with the various sports’ technical gestures and training methods to understand better the stresses to which athletes are subjected.

 

COURSE PRESENTATION

The advanced training course in Sports Osteopathy will start in September 2021 and finish in February 2022. The training is organised in 5 face-to-face meetings and online webinars. Each session consists of 5 days of training, 30 days divided into 60 units for 240 hours of lectures.

At the end of the course, participants will have to carry out scientific research work in groups.

The course will cover several topics and skills that we believe must be acquired to approach patients with problems in the sports environment expertly.

 

Osteopathic approaches and principles of treatment

Before addressing any specific sporting issues, it is essential to clarify and standardise osteopathic knowledge to manage the rest of the training. We should all “speak the same language” and share the same treatment principles.

 

Pathologies and treatment of the various regions

The sports environment calls for an in-depth, detailed, and up-to-date knowledge of the pathologies and problems specific to the individual body regions. Especially in the sports field, we believe it is crucial to exchange knowledge with other professionals involved in sports health management, i.e., the physician and physiotherapist. Therefore, the training will cover anatomy, physiology, specific pathologies, and clinical and physiotherapeutic approaches for each body region. All these lectures will be integrated with the particular features of the osteopathic intervention, which we want to highlight, should not be considered an alternative to the other treatment methods but as a supplementary approach.

 

Muscle and tendon

We will spend a few days deepening the physiology and anatomy of the muscle-tendon unit to better understand its injury mechanisms at a pathogenetic level and better interact through the osteopathic treatment during the various phases of post-injury recovery.

 

Systemic pathologies of the athlete

Half a day of lessons will cover all those syndromes and systemic problems, often difficult to detect before being full-blown, from which athletes are affected mainly because of the overload to which their body structure is subjected. In our practice, we often experience these issues through our patients, and knowing how to identify them early on makes the difference between therapeutic success or failure.

 

Biomechanical analysis of sports gestures

An entire day will be dedicated to the biomechanical analysis of the main sporting activities (running, jumping, throwing, football, etc.) to understand the mechanical stresses and physical strains to which the athlete may be subjected.

 

Training features and specific stresses in the various sports. Theory and field practice

The main challenge of these units will be the field practice. Participants, guided by high-level trainers, will try on themselves the athletes’ training to understand its difficulties and peculiarities and the technical movements of each sport. These lectures will be held in sports facilities and will be divided into two parts, the first in which the trainees will observe athletes’ training and the second in which they will train and try out specific technical gestures.

 

Physical therapy

We included a fact-finding lecture on the principles, functioning, and uses of the most commonly employed physical therapy approaches in the sports environment. The unit aims to give an idea of the effectiveness, fields of application, and possible abuse of physical therapy.

 

Diagnostic testing

Two half-days of training will be dedicated to deepening the knowledge and reading ability of the most commonly used diagnostic tests in this field. The aim is not to replace the diagnosis made by a radiologist but to better understand the medical reports and link them with the clinical picture.

 

Neuromuscular taping and functional bandaging

We aim to provide a very comprehensive training course, that is why we could not leave out a unit on neuromuscular taping and functional bandaging. Also, given the widespread use and effectiveness of these methods, we want to offer our trainees an additional therapeutic tool that is so mainstream.

 

Prevention

A part of the advanced course will be dedicated to the routine management of the athlete without injuries during training and competition. The idea is to prevent the injuries through treatment in the best possible way.

 

Nutrition and dietary supplements

Some webinars will aim to clarify, thoroughly examine, and share the principles of the nutritional biochemistry based on which to design the athlete’s diet. Also, we want to debunk many myths and spread information that favours individuals’ health primarily, as osteopathy teaches us.

 

Case study

We will reserve a few days for the evaluation and treatment of clinical cases together with expert teachers. The aim is to examine and learn more about the manual skills, reasoning methods, and management of professional athletes.

 

Orthoses in the sports field (orthopedic insoles and oral orthosis)

Two units will be dedicated to orthotics: we will illustrate how and when to use orthoses during sporting activity, explain their action principles, and test their actual effectiveness.
