Spinal Manipulation
This two-day course gives participants the practical skills needed to safely and effectively perform spinal manipulation (grade V) techniques. Indications, precautions, and contraindications are discussed. Case studies are used to illustrate selection of techniques and develop clinical reasoning. The evidence underpinning high velocity thrust techniques for the treatment of neck and back pain is presented. The number of participants is limited to 12 to ensure a high level of supervision and feedback. READ MORE
Upper Cervical Spine

This two day course gives participants the practical skills needed to safely and effectively examine and treat upper cervical spine (O-C2) dysfunction. The approach integrates concepts developed by Maitland, Edwards, Mulligan, and Jull amongst others.

Case studies are used to develop reasoning in clinical diagnosis and treatment planning. The evidence base supporting manual therapy in the treatment of upper cervical spinal dysfunction is outlined.

Cervical Spine
This two-day cervical spine course comprises an integrated manual therapy approach to the treatment of neck pain. The focus of examination and treatment is on the articular, neural, and motor systems, particularly of the C2-7 region. Essential background theory is covered, but the emphasis is on practical sessions. READ MORE
Thoracic Spine

This one-day course gives participants the practical skills needed to safely and effectively examine and treat articular dysfunction of the thoracic spine and rib cage. Case studies are used to develop reasoning in clinical diagnosis and treatment planning.

The evidence base supporting manual therapy in the treatment of upper back pain is outlined. The ratio of participants to tutors is kept low (maximum of 12:1) to ensure a high level of supervision and feedback.

Lumbar Spine

This two-day lumbar spine course comprises an integrated manual therapy approach to the treatment of low-back pain. The focus of examination and treatment is on the articular, neural, and motor systems whilst psycho-social issues are also considered. Essential theory is covered, but the emphasis is on practical sessions.

The content draws on work by many key manual therapists including Maitland, Edwards, McKenzie, Mulligan, Elvey and O'Sullivan. Case studies are used to develop clinical reasoning and illustrate common clinical conditions. The evidence informing clinical practice is highlighted throughout the course.
