    Course testimonials and feedback:

    Thanks for the course this weekend, it was great to review clinical skills and add to my toolbox. I found the content really useful and am looking forward to implementing some of the skills we reviewed into my clinical practice.

    Easy to follow, lots of variations of techniques, appliable, sensible, covering all relevant aspects. Will start utilising from tomorrow. Thank you for the great course!

    Really enjoyed red flags section. Really enjoyed WAD section. Great that we did practical components. Great catering and frequent breaks

    “I really enjoyed this workshop! Lots of time to practice practical skills which is refreshing from recent courses which have been very literature heavy.”

    “Easy to follow, lots of variations of techniques, applicable, sensible, covering all relevant aspects. Will start utilising from tomorrow. Thank you for the great course!”

    “I really enjoyed the course from the content to the level of evidence and to the take-home messages that I can immediately apply to practices straightaway. Very helpful! If you can bring any of this PD courses, like the planned lumbar course, to Melbourne at some point, it would be great."
