Rollin E. Becker, DO introduced us to a more complete understanding of how to treat trauma induced compressions in the cranium and body and stating, “I use compression in all my treatments.” OCF instruction over the last 75 years has emphasized the importance of treatment strain patterns (torsions, lateral strains, etc.) in the cranium, but little about treating cranial compressions. In a complete practice of OCF, the practitioner must learn how to safely use compression to treat compressions throughout the cranium.
Since 1985, Ken Graham, DO, has been developing a method of teaching the diagnosis and treatment of compressions, as taught to him by Dr. Becker.
At an OCA Conference in 2011, Herb Miller, DO, knowing Rollin’s work better than anyone, told Dr. Graham “You have got what Dr. Becker was doing, go teach it.”
The course will include a manual of instruction that describes and illustrates the treatment of compressions in the cranium.
