Prerequisite: Prerequisite courses include the 2022 Breastfeeding Dyad course or an Intro to OMT course that is approved by the course director.

Course Description
This course is designed for physicians (MD and DO) who desire to utilize osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) in their practice of breastfeeding medicine. This course will serve as an intermediate level course so participants should have prior knowledge in OMT either as an OMS or DO or having demonstrated appropriate pre-requisite courses for MDs. The course will teach an osteopathic approach to treating the breastfeeding dyad, including specific osteopathic techniques that can be utilized to strengthen the breastfeeding relationship. The approach for treating the mother will include techniques that can help with improving supply, resolving/preventing mastitis, and treating associated aches/pains of breastfeeding posture and positioning. These include DeQuervain’s, carpal tunnel, and neck/shoulder/upper thoracic pain. The infant portion of the course will focus on techniques to help with latch issues, as well as commonly linked other symptoms including torticollis, plagiocephaly, gastroesophageal reflux, and colic. In addition to learning specific techniques, the course will focus on teaching the osteopathic approach to evaluating and treating a patient so that participants are able to leave the course prepared to integrate this knowledge into their practice. This includes teaching the necessary skills to document, bill, and code for OMT as well.

Educational Learning Objectives
1. Illustrate the application of an osteopathic approach to the breastfeeding dyad including OMT to help foster a healthy breastfeeding relationship.  
2. Strengthen palpatory skills and review pertinent anatomy needed to safely perform OMT. 
3. Introduce documentation, billing, and coding for OMT.
