Veterinary Medicine meets Osteopaths: moving toward an “Integrated Medicine”

Osteopathy applied to the Animal Kingdom

Rome, 28th-29th of September 2012 - Hotel Parco Tirreno
Via Aurelia 480

After having promoted and successfully organized the first series of Osteopathic Congress in Italy, the University Foundation L.U.Me.N.Oli.S and the School of Osteopathy C.R.O.M.O.N. of Rome are delighted to announce for the first time ever in the history of the Osteopathic development

The First International Congress of Osteopathy applied to Animal Practice

Through the gathering of the most representative associations and the most experienced Osteopaths in this peculiar but yet fascinating field, this congress aims to propose the Osteopathic Practice as a Science, Art and an Integrated Manual Medicine; applicable successfully to the majority of the animal kingdom; available to share a common language based on evidence and research, in open interaction and integration with Veterinary Surgeons.

The objective of the event will be to propose the evidence and the efficacy of Osteopathy applied to most species of the animal kingdom, with all of its limits and results: from birds to equines, from reptiles to elephants, from the exotic animals to the domesticated ones.

Through a clinical and research based language, Osteopathy will be offering its contribution to the assistance and health of many animal patients. Each session will explore multiple aspects of Osteopathic manipulation on different animals presenting various clinical conditions.

They will then be discussed in depth during the round table sessions that will gather numerous experts in the medical and osteopathic field. In addition, the objective of this congress will be addressed to the Osteopaths present, by inviting them to expand their knowledge and clinical experience to a world often underestimated, but yet so open and responsive to Osteopathic treatment, such as that one populated by animals...

Due to the high number of abstracts submitted from all over the globe, the submission date for sending scientific abstracts has been extended to the 15th April 2012. If you are interested in participating as a speaker, please send the abstract of your work to the Scientific Board by the deadline date.

During Friday 28th and the morning of Saturday 29th of September, the congress will be arranged into six sessions addressing different species of the animal kingdom (exotics, cats, dogs, birds, equines, wild), with national and international speakers, who will be presenting research based studies made in the light of an Integration between Veterinary and Osteopathic Medicine. Finally, on Saturday afternoon there will be the possibility to attend 6 Workshops lead by some international guests and speakers of the congress.
