The FCERO responds to the need for training in pediatrics for osteopathy students during the Children’s Days. In addition, it provides educational material to teachers.
Since the Foundation’s inception, approximately 50 children from 0 to 10 years of age, suffering from neuro-sensory-motor disorders, at-risk babies or those who have undergone physical or emotional trauma, benefit from attentive care each year. Not to mention the toddlers who consult us as a preventive measure to maintain or improve their health.
The teaching has improved over the years by adapting and modifying the clinical methodology to be more children and toddler specific. This has led to techniques and maneuvers specific to their bone maturity as well as unique condition for which they are consulting.
Evenings and advanced workshops in pediatric osteopathy have also been organized sporadically for several years:
- Mr Philippe Druelle, osteopath, shared his experience during the evenings of teaching on specific approaches in osteopathy for babies with various health problems;
- Mrs. Evelyne Soyez came three times to present the vision and clinical methodology of Dr. Claudine Amiel Tison;
- Various speakers from the health field (medical specialists, orthopedists, pediatricians, dentists, ophthalmologists and occupational therapists) shared their approach with the graduate students of the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques de Montréal.
- Ms. Geneviève Forget, osteopath, gave a lecture in 2018 on the pressure dynamics and the vascular tree
