The course will cover the anatomical, physiological and functional basis to the evaluation of pain disorders of the spine. Of special interest will be clinical practice, emphasizing clinical examination, evaluation, interpretation, dif erential diagnosis and management. Evidence based practice is an essential component of the programme, but evidence can only be used when it exists at a satisfactory level of quality, and unfortunately there are still aspects of manual therapy that have not be adequately investigated.

This course emphasizes an evidence-based approach to spinal manual therapy, incorporating classif cation of spinal pain disorders and subsequent sub-category based manual therapy management strategies.

This course will be conducted in lecture, tutorial and workshop format for the clinician or academic who is interested in manual therapy, manual medicine or musculoskeletal medicine. It is anticipated that the course content will be suitable to individuals who are seeking new knowledge, to individuals seeking to expand their knowledge and to those individuals seeking the stimulation of clinical interaction. Whilst the course will be presented at a high level this should not be seen as a barrier to participation for those with little or with no previous experience in this special area. As a result of attending the course it is anticipated that participants will gain personal satisfaction as in a variety of ways that will enhance their individual requirements. There are therefore no pre-requisites for participation.
