Description

This 2-day course will focus on reconceptualising pain, manual therapy and the role of RMT’s in healthcare. The focus will be on how to use manual therapy and therapeutic exercise in a manner that is consistent with the evidence and theories of how multiple factors can impact pain, movement, performance and disability.

The course provides the opportunity to learn how modifications of traditional therapeutic practices can increase success and improve patient outcomes. It aims to decrease practitioner stress and increase confidence when working with routine and complex patients.

Discussion, observation, practical applications and small group work will be used to emphasize key learning objectives.

Learning objectives

  • Pain has more to do with sensitivity than damage

  • Increase understanding of self-management and to improve RMT’s abilities to teach self-management to their clients.
