Date: Sunday 1st July, 2018 9am-5pm

Cost: $300 MA members/$330 non-members
PDPs: 8pts
Venue: SSNT

 

Presenter Profile:

Jon has more than 40 year’s experience as a Physiotherapy Practitioner, including having founded and managed two very successful private practices and was active as a Senior Lecturer in the Post-Graduate Manipulative Therapy Course at the University of Melbourne. Jon’s particular interest lies in spinal pain – headache assessment and treatment, neck and arm pain. Jon is also highly skilled in treating peripheral joint problems.

Jon was the Club Physiotherapist for both the South Melbourne and Melbourne AFL clubs, and was physiotherapist for International Professional Tennis Tournaments, as well as touring dance troupes.

Special interests:

  • Spinal pain
  • Headache treatment
  • Neck & arm pain

Course Outline:

This workshop will thoroughly cover theoretical and practical findings that support the evidence for use of cervical spinal mobilisation and consideration of indications and contraindications associated with its use.

  • introduction to the Maitland theory of assessment;
  • subjective assessment: identify clear patient communication techniques and how to identify 'red flags';
  • planning objective patient examination: understanding Grades of movement and movement diagrams;
  • active and combined movements;
  • introduction and application of passive accessory movement techniques (PAMs), passive physiological techniques and neural mobilisation techniques (neural tissue mobilisation as opposed to intervertebral joint mobs);
  • passive intervertebral movement techniques;
  • precision of neurological examination and reflex testing;
  • neural testing - i.e. ULTT;
  • treatment indications and techniques.

Numbers are limited for these practical workshops, and Jon's full day workshops will underpin much of the practical and theoretically learnings that will prepare participants for his advanced spinal and peripheral joint mobilations workshops. Places will fill fast, so we recommend you book early.
