Event Details


Multimodal management, including manual therapy and exercise is considered to be the most effective for patients with many forms of neck pain. There are many techniques available to the physiotherapist; the challenge is to optimize clinical reasoning in choosing the approach.

This course will use a case-based discussion to identify the subjective and objective features of various cervical spine clinical presentations, and then work through the management, including hands on techniques, which would represent best practise for that patient scenario.  The evidence will be presented wherever available.

Both manual therapy techniques and exercise options will be demonstrated and practised with the emphasis on manual therapy.

This is not a comprehensive cervical exercise course, but the basics will be presented as applicable to the specific conditions discussed.

Course Objectives

  1. Course participants will become familiar with various classification systems for neck pain.

  2. Course participants will be able to identify the key features, both subjective and objective, for several common cervical spine classifications

  3. Through demonstration and lab practise, participants will acquire practical skills, both assessment and treatment, to use with their patients with cervical dysfunction in their clinical practice. 

This 2-day course runs from 8:30am - 4:30pm each day.
