This two-day specialist led course adopts a biopsychosocial approach to explore the evidence based literature to then work within a framework of clinical reasoning to tackle complex lumbar pelvic and hip clinical presentations.
This approach integrates motor control and movement analysis to assist in diagnostic and management strategies that include a focus on exercise and exercise progressions, as well as stress reduction and relaxation techniques when indicated.
Once neuromuscular and functional movement control deficits have been identified, participants will progress through treatment options to be able to effectively prescribe active management strategies. These treatment options include some manual therapy techniques, neurodynamic and motor control integration, relaxation and anxiety reducing techniques, as well as reviewing many of the most common exercise regimes and exploring these into a more individualised approach and challenging the exercise progressions into full function.
The course is very interactive and patient management based. It explores what challenges we face today in the questioning of manual therapy, the fast changing space of pain science and pain education and integrates this into a cognitive and exercise based approach to the management of these often complex presentations.
Any physiotherapist working with low back pain, pelvic girdle pain or hip pathologies would benefit from participating in this course.
Physiotherapists working in aged care frequently have to manage people with Parkinson's disease (PD) and other movement disorders. This course will improve skills relevant to the assessment and treatment of these disorders. It will cover recent research findings, new medication and other changes in PD management e.g. surgery and their implications for physiotherapy practice.
Working in a Residential Aged care facility ( RACF) can be very isolating, from a professional point of view, so this forum is an excellent opportunity to meet other physiotherapists who work in a RACF and to build your professional networks.
The all new Spinal Physiotherapy Part A (Cervical) course is a foundation course aimed at physiotherapists wanting to gain a contemporary overview of neck disorders, and develop skills in:
• interpreting patient history;
• performing a standard, comprehensive, physical examination;
• interpreting assessment findings to identify and select appropriate best practice interventions.
