About the course
Delegates will learn how to integrate the latest, cutting edge assessment and treatment approaches into their clinical practice from a physiotherapist that specialises in neck pain.
The main focus of the course is on one-to-one patient self-management, but delegates will also learn:
- how to carry out psychological screening to assess prognosis;
- group-based exercise approaches to neck pain (the ‘Neck Gym’);
- novel ‘hands on’ manipulative approaches;
- sensorimotor assessment and management.
