STA94 'Recognising Rheumatology' with special guest Jack March

In the final part of this month's 'Focus on CPD', we welcome special guest Jack March of www.rheumatology.physio. Jack is Clinical Lead for the Rheumatology service delivered by Chews Health, and one of the voices behind The Physio Matters Podcast.

In this live hour, Jack talks to us about his 'Recognising Rheumatology' CPD courses, designed to help soft tissue therapists recognise symptoms and signs of rheumatologic conditions in clinical practice.

This is of huge importance because, as Jack explains, these sympoms often 'masquerade' as the type of lower back pain which most therapists and patients will be sorted via massage and manual therapy and as a result can go undiagnosed for years delaying important disease-modifying treatment.

Jack's website https://rheumatology.physio/ includes blogs, details of courses and the highly recommended Recognising Rheumatology Audio Book.

The next courses Jack has coming up are:

  • ONLINE - Recognising Rheumatology (half day): 12/April
  • BIRMINGHAM - Recognising Rheumatology (full day): 07/May
  • EXETER - Recognising Rheumatology (full day): 09/July

STA92 CPD Focus: 'Reconciling Biomechanics With Pain Science' with special guest Greg Lehman

The third episode in this month's focus on CPD brings you a special guest whose course 'Reconciling Biomechanics With Pain Science' has been taught in more than 30 countries across 5 continents - the one & only Gregory Lehman.

'Reconciling Biomechanics With Pain Science' is a practical course designed to provide therapists with a simplified yet strongly evidenced based biomechanical approach to injury & pain management that allows the development of skills that address all areas of the biopsychosocial contributors to the pain experience.

It teaches an alternative to the kinesiopathological model of pain & injury but still tries to answer when biomechanics matters. 'Reconciling Biomechanics With Pain Science' is coming to Cork, Ireland on Apr 2nd & 3rd 2022 at Pilates Physio Cork. Full details can be found at https://www.tickettailor.com/events/reconcilingbiomechanicswithpainscience/590774
