Significance of the morphokinetic patterns for osteopathy

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.

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)

Content



Under the main title ‘Morphokinetic patterns diagnose and therapy’ the 3 courses are organised in relation to the germ layer derivatives: the cranio-vertebro-sacral system, the visceral system, the trajectory system (loco motoric, cardiovascular and urogenital).
  • MKP Prx1 : Basic principles for diagnosis and treatment

During the seminar the principles and features of morphokinetic patterns will be clarified (definition and translation towards the osteopathic concept) On one side it consists of a theoretical description and on the other side a practical implementation and application. Hereby also de difference between a normal, dysfunctional and pathologic pattern will be clarified. (Diff diagnose) Subjects :

  • Definitions: perception, concept, conceptual model, technique, fulcrum, anamnesis, palpation, diagnosis, treatment
  • Basic morphokinetic basic patterns: anatomo-physiological references. (cell, tissue, organ, organism)
  • Practice: black box palpation, diagnostical parameters (anamnesis, palpation, therapy)
  • Synthesis


  • MKP Prx2 : The cranio-vertebro-sacral system

During this seminar the principles of the morphokinetic patterns in relation to the cranium (cranio-sacral system : neurocranium) are clarified. (definition and translation to the osteopathic concept) This contains the theoretical description on one hand and a practical implementation and application on the other hand. Hereby also the difference between a normal, dysfunctional and pathologic pattern will be clarified. (Diff diagnose). Since the morpho-kinetic patterns of a given systemic can not be separated from patterns related to other germ layer derivates, the osteopathic and differential diagnose will be expanded to the other (germ layer) systems. Subjects :

  • Basic morphokinetic patterns: anatomophysiological references (cell, tissue, organ, organism), inflammation, chronic segmental facilitation
  • Practice: diagnostical parameters (anamnesis, palpation, therapy), pacing, dura girdles, vegetativum, spine, integration, techniques
  • Synthesis


  • MKP Prx3 : The digestive system

During this seminar the principles of the morphokinetic patterns related to face, neck and trunc (visceral system) are clarified. (definition and translation to the osteopathic concept) This contains the theoretical description on one hand and the practical implementation and application on the other hand. Hereby also the difference between a normal, dysfunctional and pathologic pattern will be clarified. (Differential diagnostic). Since the morpho-kinetic patterns of a given systemic can not be separated from patterns related to other germ layer derivates, the osteopathic and differential diagnose will be expanded to the other (germ layer) systems. Subjects:

  • Basic morphokinetic patterns: anatomophysiological references (cell, tissue, organ, organism)
  • Practice: glands, behaviour, nutrition and diet, diagnostical parameters (anamnesis, palpation, therapy), organs, visceromotoric, techniques
  • Synthesis


  • MKP Prx4: Trajectorial system: loco-motoric, cardiovascular, urogenital

During the seminar the principles of the morphokinetic patterns related to the limbs and the cardiovascular and urogenital system are clarified. (definition and translation to the osteopathic concept) This contains the theoretical description on one hand and the practical implementation and application on the other hand. Hereby also de difference between a normal, dysfunctional and pathologic pattern will be clarified. (Differential diagnostic). Since the morpho-kinetic patterns of a given systemic can not be separated from patterns related to other germ layer derivates, the osteopathic and differential diagnose will be expanded to the other (germ layer) systems.

Note concerning the urogenital system : intrusive techniques are neither demonstrated nor performed. Subjects :

  • Basic morphokinetic patterns: anatomo-physiological references (cell, tissue, organ, organism)
  • Practice: diagnostical parameters (anamnesis, palpation, therapy), integration
  • Synthesis
