The five models include: Biomechanical–Structural model - Posture and motion Respiratory–Circulatory model-Movement of body fluids and critical gas exchange Neurological model- Neurological communication systems, central, peripheral, and autonomic Metabolic-Nutritional model- Cellular and organ functions such as assimilation of nutrients, excretion of wastes, metabolic processes of all types, repair of damaged tissues, protection from infections, and reproductive functions Behavioral–Biopsychosocial model-Behaviors such as sleep, exercise, healthy dietary choices, avoidance of toxic substances, and social support networking. Using the above, the attendees will be provided a tool for thinking about their patients osteopathically.
