2013 Workshop Programme
Enhance your understanding around healthy and impaired function of the pelvis and spine and transform your clinical practice.
• These unique workshops integrate contemporary research and the insights gleaned from extensive clinical practice and enquiry.
• They offer a novel, thought provoking and highly practical learning opportunity:
• Learn how to recognise and clinically subgroup the more common clinical patterns of posturo-motor dysfunction - from athletes to the ‘couch potato’.
• Develop your skills in simplified postural evaluation and functional movement screening and further appropriate joint and myofascial assessment so that you can better identify the underlying factors responsible for the presenting pain disorder.
• Practical sessions also integrate manual therapy and exercise therapy approaches – and how to better prescribe and establish fundamental patterns of control which underlie more healthy basic functional movement patterns
• Be prepared for a paradigm shift in your approach to exercise prescription as we appraise the current concepts and rationale behind many commonly prescribed therapeutic exercises - ‘core stability’, ‘Pilates’ and ‘stretching’ etc. - with implications for screening and injury prevention in the exercise industry in general.
• The workshops are offered in 3 modules - completion of module 1 is a prerequisite to attending module 2 and so on
• These workshops are now accredited by the Australian Physiotherapy Association - each module attracts 19 CPD points.
• All 2013 workshops run 6-8.30 Friday evening & 9-5 Saturday & Sunday
