N/A

Relevant Concerns with Fluid Congestion (venous & lymphatic, in particular):

Delineate the drainage pathway for the area, viscus, joint, or other component relevant to the case.  Follow this to its terminal drainage.

 

 

 

 

 

Describe and portray the ‘choke points’ that may impede drainage along this path.

 

 

 

 

 

Suggest possible Osteopathic manipulative interventions that may assist in drainage of the fluid congestion associated with this case.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relevant Sympathetic Nervous System Concerns:

Delineate the sympathetic innervations for the area, viscus, joint, or other component relevant to the case.  Follow its course to the spinal cord.

 

 

 

 

 

Describe and portray the fascial ‘choke points’ that may increase tension on this nervous pathway to the spinal cord.

 

 

 

 

 

Suggest possible Osteopathic manipulative interventions that may assist in normalization of the sympathetic influences associated with this case.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relevant Parasympathetic Nervous System Concerns:

Delineate the parasympathetic innervation for the area, viscus, joint, or other component relevant to the case.  Follow its course to the spinal cord.

 

 

 

 

 

Describe and portray the fascial ‘choke points’ that may increase tension on this nervous pathway to the spinal cord.

 

 

 

 

 

Suggest possible Osteopathic manipulative interventions that may assist in normalization of parasympathetic influences associated with this case.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relevant Pain Concerns:

Delineate the pathway for afferent pain fibers for the area, viscus, joint, or other component relevant to the case.  Follow its course to the spinal cord.

 

 

 

 

 

Describe and portray the fascial ‘choke points’ that may increase tension of this nervous pathway to the spinal cord.

 

 

 

 

 

Suggest possible Osteopathic manipulative interventions that may assist in normalization of nociceptive influences associated with this case.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relevant Biomechanical Concerns:

Delineate the local and regional biomechanical concerns that may impact this case.

 

 

 

 

 

Delineate the inter-regional biomechanical concerns that may impact this case.

 

 

 

 

 

Suggest possible Osteopathic manipulative interventions that may assist in normalization of biomechanical influences associated with this case.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relevant Psychosocial concerns:

Delineate the historical psychosocial concerns that could be relevant to this case.

 

 

 

 

 

Delineate the psychosocial concerns relevant to palpatory contact with the patient in this case.

 

 

 

 

 

Suggest possible approaches to Osteopathic manipulative management that may assist in acknowledging and/or addressing the psychosocial concerns related to this case.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Deficient (Level #0): Has not learned rules or principles.  Lacks any sense of the overall task.

o       Unorganized attempt to apply rules or plans

o       No situational perception

o       No discretionary judgment

Novice (Level #1):  Operates by consciously-learnt context-free rules. Lacks any sense of the overall task.

o       Rigid adherence to taught rules or plans

o       Little situational perception

o       No discretionary judgment

 

Competent (Level #2):  Has now learnt to recognize many context-free and situational elements.  Still lacks any sense of their overall importance to the task, and rapidly becomes overwhelmed.  Tries to overcome this by hierarchical goal-based planning.  This hierarchical decomposition of the task means that, at any time, the competent pays attention only to that small number of features relevant to a particular sub-goal, thus avoiding being overwhelmed.

o       Coping with crowdedness

o       Now sees actions at least partially in terms of longer-term goals

o       Conscious deliberate planning

o       Standardized and routinized procedures

 

Proficient (Level #3):  Performs his/her task logically, almost all the time. Occasionally has to stop and deliberate, but this involves critical reflection on his/her deductions, rather than goal-based planning.

o       Readily incorporates rules, guidelines or maxims

o       Logical grasp of situations based on understanding

o       Analytic approaches to problem solving

o       Vision of what is possible
