Why are my clients in pain and what can I do about it?
This is the most important question for every therapist – we all want to do our best for our clients. Probably the most common symptom reported by clients yet it is remarkable that pain is rarely the focus of trainings. Here we address the balance towards understanding the practical application of pain theory and biology in the assessment and treatment of our clients.
Education for therapists has expanded over the last decade with many new and exciting concepts. New words, challenging ideas, and novel techniques seem to appear every day on social media and new textbooks are released each month.
How can a busy therapist keep up with it all? How can we separate the useful from the marketing bravado?
Join James Earls and Owen Lewis on this inspiring and educational free half-day event where we will give you an overview to some of the latest thinking on manual therapy which will include:
- What is fascia?
- What is function?
- Why are my clients in pain?
- What can I do about it?
- How can I work in a way that acknowledges the principles of best practice?
This half-day will introduce you to methods that balance the varying factors that affect our clients and introduce new ways to assess, treat and empower them.
Places will be limited – early bookng advisable
