About the event
Eric Sanderson, BSc (Hons), Dip Ost, MSc, will be back to present, for the first time in Nov Scotia, this very orginal and evidence-based course : Osteopathic Visceral Assessment From a Complexity Paradigm that involves a methodology for the positional assessment of the abdominal organs, which begins with a method to determine which organ system should be assessed, and follows with organ localization and lastly involves verification using a diagnostic ultrasound.
