Course content: This is a blended learning course which not only teaches treatment techniques but how to apply them in real clinical situations, not just a list of manoeuvres. There will be two clinical questions on each spinal area; one for sports injury clients and the other for an average clinic patient. Areas covered are the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine and pelvis. Some peripheral joints will be discussed, e.g foot, ankle, knee and useful rehabilitation and exercises for these areas.   Techniques will be illustrated using real case histories which can be applied to clinic patients and sports injury patients. Everything you learn you will know how to apply in your practice the following week.

This course has 10 guided learning hours, another 10 hours of practice are suggested for students to successfully complete the course. The one to one assessment will last around 20 minutes via video call on one of the assessment dates detailed above.
