Significance of the morphokinetic patterns for osteopathy

Studies about human ontogenesis have demonstrated that the morphokinetic patterns mean a fundamental basis for form and function. These morphokinetic patterns do exist at a local, regional and systemic level and they are radely specific when it comes to describe the physiological functioning of a vertebra or a digestif organ, but also of a complete system like the cardiovascular or craniosacral system.

The morphokinetic patterns are designed by a series of ‘physical parameters’ that make them quantifiable by palpation. Coherence (quality of tissu) and direction (vector) are examples of these parameters that permit to determine by palpation in what mesure a morphokinetic pattern is physiologic or not (deformation in the way of structural change, pathology). The specific properties of the morphokinetic patterns are a palpatory starting-base for the osteopathic diagnose, the differential diagnose, and also for the therapeutic aspect.

Construction of the course

The embryologic germ layers are brought in relation with specific morphokinetic patterns. The patterns are resumed in an anatomo-physiologic paradigm that is related to the germ layer and consists of the following germinal derivates: ; Homunculus neurocranii (ecto), Homunculus viscerale (endo) and Homunculus interni (meso).

Under the capital title “Morphokinetic patterns, about diagnose and therapy” the following courses are organised in relation to the germinal derivates:

  • Basic principles for diagnosis and treatment
  • The cranio-vertebro-sacral system (Homunculus neurocranii)
  • The visceral system (Homunculus viscerocranii)
  • The locomotor, cardiovascular and urogenital system (Homunculus interni)

Attention

The course "Morphokinetics in Practice" is a multi-year course. Invitations to the following seminars will automatically follow after registration. A participant can has to start at the beginning but may end his participation at any time.
