2009 Ursa Course Descriptions

Treating the Upper and Lower Cervical Spine

The goal of this class is to present concepts of motion of the upper and lower cervical spine as it applies to both normal biomechanics and dysfunctional motion.  Several treatment concepts will be presented including Muscle Energy, Inhibitory Technique, Strain-counterstrain and other manual techniques associated with normalizing biomechanical dysfunction.

Bear Looks at: Mediastinum

The Mediastinum class will look at the structures of the Mediastinum such as the heart, lungs and would go in depth with the differences in both sides of the Vagus nerve and look at the Thymus and the immune System.

Treating Movement Dysfunction in Sports & Athletics:

The goad of this class is to present concepts of sports medicine from the perspective of the Ursa concepts of the biomechanics of Running, Throwing, and Racket Sports.(February), Golf, Soccer and Cycling(June). Normal biomechanics and dysfunctional motion will be discussed with relation to adaptive dysfunction that leads to common injuries presented within the clinical setting. Several Manual treatment concepts will be presented associated with normalizing biomechanical dysfunction. Concepts of treatment and return to function will be discussed.

Treating Somato Visceral Dysfunction Using the Concepts of Chapman, Bennett and Pottenger:

The goal of this class is to present concepts of dysfunction utilizing embryologic concepts of developmental segmentation of the visceral system. Assessment and treatment will be based on scientific methodology related to visceral dysfunction and treatment. The student will be able to use several strategies to ascertain information to provide rational treatment. This class will include looking at the diabetic model of pathology for the treatment integration.

Manual Treatment for the Sympathetic & Parasympathetic Ganglia:

Dysfunction of the parasympathetic and Sympathetic Nervous systems co-exist, to varying degrees, with biomechanical problems. This class outlines when to consider autonomic imbalance with opportunity to practice new treatment techniques. There will be information on the differential diagnosis of conditions affecting these ganglia that present as problems or mimicking disorders of the biomechanical integrity of the body.
Loren H. ”Bear” Rex, D.O.

Embryology for the Manual Practice:

This course will cover material from the Silver Series condensed into lectures of the Embryology of humans with special emphasis on how the manual practitioner can use the concepts in their practice. By understanding patterns of development and connections between the systems of the human body, it is possible to make manual treatment more effective overall. By the end of this course the student will have an appreciation of how events occurring in the stages of development apply to the treatment of patients.

Bear Looks at: Thorax and Shoulder:

The Thorax and shoulder class will look at the structures of the Thorax from a sympathetic nervous system point of view and would utilize material covering the Ganglia and Somato-Visceral dysfunction point of view.

Weekend with Bear and Lino:

As always this class is a “one of a kind” experience for those looking for the challenge of an intellectual adventure. This year the topic will be “Understanding male and female pelvic dysfunction.”

Treating the Pelvis and Sacrum:

The goal of this class is to present concepts of motion of the pelvis, sacrum and lumbar spine as it applies both to normal biomechanics and dysfunctional motion. Several treatment concepts will be presented including muscle energy, inhibitory technique, and other manual techniques associated with normalizing biomechanical dysfunction.
