45 real life cases explained from a constitutional perspective. Here you will see the underpinning knowledge in action. The key is not to see this as explaining how to ‘treat pathology’ but to see that we can use the underpinning constitutional diagnostic approach on a very wide range of case types and get a result. Here we see that we don’t treat any conditions! This will change the way you understand therapeutics because it will demonstrate the full potency of the constitutional therapeutic approach. ‘Remove obstructions – trust nature’.
Moving away from the fallacy of a pathology led approach, you will see how logical the constitutional approach is. In all my practice years I am yet to meet a patient who cannot understand what I do and what I am going to do as part of treatment. The most rewarding part of this journey is being able to see what is in trouble, explain it to the patient and then confidently solve the problem.
Just think you can leave behind all those palliative modalities, no pins no pills, just juice – cut to the chase DONE!
Which group of patients are we illustrating on this course?
There are a range of cases demonstrated that would show the thinking behind approaching patients in groups 1-3.

What You Will Learn
Powerfully bringing to life what we have learned through 45 real life case histories. Here we break down the rationale behind a constitutional diagnosis and illustrate this with cases covering a wide range of osteopathic practice from muscular skeletal presentations to more complex constitutional cases. Putting the learning from films 1 to 3 into real time practice.
what a real cause of ‘trouble is’ and direct what you do at the cause. See demonstrated – ‘Practice tested ideas that work’ to explain to the patient the rational for their treatment. The vast majority of long term and chronic cases are reflex in nature and this requires the practitioner to embrace the body as a biome, not a set of isolated symptoms to successfully resolve a case.
Film 4 Contents – Case Studies
A comprehensive view of constitutional principles using real case histories in order to illustrate the theories we’ve looked at previously. In Films 1 – 3 we looked at the evolved theory that Howard has developed over 27 years of practice – in Film 4 you can really see this theory translating into practice.

New bonus film extra:
16 minutes of detail focus on adjusting the sidelying pelvis and spine simultaneously – only included as part of the ‘series full online courses 1-4’. Using additional models and the directors cut, more focus on Howard’s ideas on setting up this important procedure.
There is now a summative assessment for film 4 which enables you to consolidate your learning. 60 multiple choice questions that will help demonstrate what you have learned. On completion you can print off a CPD certificate, listing all the hours you have gathered on this journey.
New bonus addition
There are now 2 books from the bibliography added to give you additional directed reading so you can see where Howard started his journey and evolved the thought process to make sense in a modern clinical setting.
