Course description

Delegates will learn how to integrate the latest, cutting edge assessment and treatment approaches into their clinical practice from a physiotherapist that specialises in neck pain.

The main focus of the course is on one-to-one patient self-management, but delegates will also learn:

  • how to carry out psychological screening to assess prognosis
  • group-based exercise approaches to neck pain (the ‘Neck Gym’)
  • novel ‘hands on’ manipulative approaches
  • sensorimotor assessment and management

Learning outcomes:

  • Develop a better understanding of the biopsychosocial context of neck pain.
  • Develop a greater knowledge of the forces involved and pathologies that follow whiplash injury.
  • Develop confidence in identifying red flags and what constitutes an evidence based assessment of neck pain.
  • Develop an evidence based, clinically reasoned management plan that includes screening for poor outcome in neck pain.
  • Develop practical skills in assessing and managing impairments of muscle performance, oculomotor control, proprioception, postural stability and psychological factors that are associated with neck pain.
  • Develop practical evidence treatment strategies that include exercise based, soft tissue manipulation and joint mobilisation techniques.
