Aberrant afferent information is the cause of most neurological problems. With specific challenges to the mechano, chemo and nociceptors and the discovered predictable “rules” for them, it is possible to obtain a precise diagnosis of the functional problem. The difference in the CNS response under normal conditions (no dysfunction) and during the stimulation of a dysfunctional afferent input has been demonstrated extensively. The types of manual afferent inputs (stimuli) that are used can be produced in a variety of ways including light swiping (to stimulate the receptors of touch), local stretching (to stimulate Golgi receptors), deep pressure (Pacini receptors) and many more. Today, P-DTR works with most of the exteroceptors, interoceptors, and proprioceptors that form the afferent input to the CNS. The physiological explanation of this method is logical – each type of receptor (for example: Golgi, Pacini, vibration, nociceptors etc.) is stimulated and when the threshold for that receptor has been exceeded by the amount of stimuli, the stimuli are converted into electrical impulses. These electrical impulses form the afferent information that reaches the CNS with each type of input being relayed along their respective pathways. The CNS receives this information, interprets it and makes a motor or gland response based on the synthesis of all the information it has received, for example, the sensation of PAIN. It is synthesized directly in the brain and is a complex product of the information from the nociceptive, proprioceptive, and exteroceptor systems. Put simply, the sensation of pain would be the interpretation of the brain based on a complex integration of information from a variety of different sources. This knowledge gives us the opportunity to diagnose and treat our patients in a non-expensive and safe way.
13.15 - 13.45
What is CranioSacral Therapy and what could it add for your clients? Learn about the essence of this work, developed by Dr John Upledger DO, and why what he calls ‘SomatoEmotional Release’ is such a core part of the approach. Come and find out how a very client centred way of exploring any emotional aspects that arise in treatment helps in the resolution of many physical symptoms and patterns.
14.00 - 14.30
Reaching the unreachable client keeps many professional therapists awake at night searching for the answer. If this resonates with you then you will definitely want to have the most up to date process for eliminating chronic pain and dis-ease. Behavioural Change Consultant, Matt Hudson, believes he has found the answer for you and he will demonstrate it. The method has also proven effective by enhancing sports performance in athletes.
14.45 - 15.15
Understanding the habits we can encourage to prevent problems caused by poor posture.
15.30 - 16.00
Wearable technology now covers a wide range of devices and solutions, but there are still a number of key product barriers that effect all devices, across all sectors. Through his experience of applying custom made wearables into the sports sector, medical grade devices for remote monitoring in orthopedics and now developing mass market solutions for workwear monitoring, Martin will highlight the key product barriers to delivering cost-effective wearables today, rather than in the future.
