Functionally Relevant Testing, Treatment & Rehab to take back to the Practice.
2020 Evidence-Based from the Best of Current International Research
The following hot international topics will be covered:
- New concepts in principles of management.
- What the heck is Neuroplasticity? Utilising plasticity of the brain to enhance rehabilitation.
- Isometrics: Why the hype?... To Push or to Hold.
- Challenging Transversus: Why bracing is often not helpful. If it was all about Transversus,
why even bother giving us Rectus Abdominus?
- Pushing the link between breathing, back pain, peripheral pain & poor performance.
- Correcting posture for optimal system balance
- Pelvic Girdle Pain – MythBusters – challenging beliefs & simplifying management
- Palpation & Surface anatomy of the pelvic girdle…. if you want to release the deep hip
external rotators (eg), you need to be able to find them!
- Femero-pelvic control & cool concepts such as Vastus Lateralis & the hydraulic amplifying
- Is it really all about the Glutes? – should we start with isometrics or launch straight into
- FAI? Labral tear? OA hip? Tendinopathy? Let’s use Differential testing, combined with clinical
reasoning to differentiate
- Running principles such as stride length, step rate, torque & forward trunk lean made easy.
Useful Apps to use to help you assess biomechanical running faults & retrain better running
& gait strategies.
- The poor patella-femoral joint…stuck between the hip & the ankle. Let’s look above &
below to improve outcomes.
- Sharing of Assessment Tips & Tricks learnt from Years as a Clinician at the ‘Coal-Face’
- The latest international consensus on how to rehabilitate lower quarter tendinopathies
- Multimodal management. Individualised programs. We are skilled clinicians, NOT
- Rehab: Learn to Load it! Using Volume & RPE to monitor improvement & incrementally
increase the Load.
- Observe a full assessment, reasoning & management of an ‘unseen’ patient to help integrate
all you have learnt.
There are loads of Workshops, quick Quiz’s & Prac sessions to integrate your new knowledge
into the clinical setting.
Who should attend:
- Any Physio who sees patients with various musculo-skeletal complaints, regardless of
whether it is acute, or if there is a central mediated or chronic / persistent pain
- Physios who work with children – improve their biomechanics, concentration in class,
performance in the playground or self-esteem.
- Physios who work with the elite athlete. Reduce injury risk factors so they can compete
more with less injury.
Pre-course reading & Questions will be sent to you to assist in your preparation. Let’s work
together to ensure you get the most possible out of this 2 day interactive course.
Attending the Going Global Lower Quarter course is not a pre-requisite to attending this course as
the ‘Cool Concepts – South of the Lumbar’ is designed as a ‘stand-alone’ course. It will however be
helpful for you if you have already attended the Going – Global LQ course.
