Description

Due to popular demand we bringing you the second spinal mobilisation workshop this year!

Are you looking to improve your practical skills when performing spinal mobilisations? Or do you even want a bit of a refresher to ensure you are all up to date with the newest techniques? If so, this course is definitely for you!

The spine is one of the most stable structures within the human body and is used to support and hold our upper trunk as well as to protect the spinal cord. The spine has 2 main muscle groups that surround it called the extensors and flexors which allow us to stand up, lift, bend and flex the back. When damage occurs to the spine itself or the muscles surrounding it due to injury, trauma or surgery, this can pull the pine out of alignment or increase stiffness between each vertebrae causing loss of range of movement.

Spinal mobilsations are used to create a somewhat therapeutic effect. They involve applying a gentle but rhythmic pressure directly on top of the spine (spinous processes) or slightly to the side of the spine (transverse processes) in order to create a gentle movement between the vertebrae. This encourages range of movement to improve between the joints to therefore reduce built up stiffness and/or tension.

Here at Physio.co.uk our highly experienced Physiotherapists are running a 1 day workshop concentrating on spinal mobilisations. The therapist’s running the workshop will focus on each section of the spine and demonstrate the specific techniques used to perform effective spinal mobilisations.

The ‘Introduction to Spinal Mobilisations’ workshop will begin with a detailed presentation on the past studies, and research behind spinal mobilizations and the cautions and contra indications that have the potential to affect or prevent this form of treatment. Spinal mobilisations for each section of the spine will be discussed and demonstrated throughout the day and will then be followed with a practical element where you will be able to test your spinal mobilisation skills under supervision of our highly trained physiotherapists.

Please note this workshop is CPD only and therefore will not achieve a qualification to practice following your attendance.. You should always check your scope to practice and insurance when learning new skills.

The course will be held at our St John Street clinic on1st December. It will start at 10am and finish at 3pm. Lunch will be provided.

All tickets purchased for this course will be non-refundable
