What's this course about? 

This 2 day practical course will give you a simple and effective shoulder physiotherapy framework. 

It cuts through the confusion and frustration I am sure you often feel when trying to decide how best to assess and treat a person with a painful shoulder.

Based on the latest evidence, this course will finally show you how to talk, touch and move a patient with shoulder pain.

It's actually easier than you might think...

Now it's not all about the shoulder, so come prepared to steal some of my 'shoulder rehab secrets'... those little things that experience has taught me that money just can't buy.

You see only a few things really matter, trouble is, you've just got to know what those things are to be successful.

Join me and you're likely to find out...

Can't make it? This might interest you?
