Last weekend I went to London to do Module 6 of the SCCO's pathway. I have now done all 10 elements of the pathway. This course was "Living, breathing bone" and looked into studying and treating how physical injury affects the body, with a more specific concentration of the bone. We studied how the bone is full of fluid and different layers and types of connective tissues. The way the bone is connected to and interacts with different structures and tissues of the body. We examined the current research into the physiology of bone and how we as osteopaths can harness this very adaptive tissue to address problems our patients may be suffering from. We studied in-depth the bones of the cranium and how the way they form in the embryo affects their function in life post-birth and into adulthood. It was very interesting to look at bone as a living, functioning and adaptive tissue, as opposed to solid structures that can't be changed.
