Australian Specialist Physiotherapy Education and The Australian College of Physiotherapists, are proud to present our Masterclass Symposium. This will be a unique opportunity for titled and experienced physiotherapists to hear Specialist Physiotherapists with university research and education appointments, discuss 'clinical challenges' from their areas of expertise. Complex cases will be presented in an interactive manner, focusing on the clinical reasoning process.
Presentations will use a variety of formats, aiming to engage the participants in clinical discussion. There will be ample time for questions and participation in panel discussions. It should prove to be informative, entertaining and a must attend networking event.
At the conclusion of the presentations, there will be a chance to meet and chat with the specialists over drinks and canapés.

It is the coordination of forces produces from multiple muscles that act across joints that enables us to move and interact with our environment. There are many well-known factors that contribute to muscle force generation. However, most studies that consider muscle coordination in people with musculoskeletal pain consider muscle activation alone. It is the balance of force (not just activation) that will effect structures such as tendons and joints. I lead a group of researchers who are interested in determining if the balance of muscle force may make certain people more at risk than others at developing particular musculoskeletal disorders.
