Integrative Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (IOMT) Series UPANDRUNNING is excited to welcome Dr Sean Flannagan and Dr Rachel Grubb to teach their IOMT series at our Medical centre during 2019/20\. This series of workshops can be done individually or in their entirety to earn the attendee PGCert in IOMT on completion.

Workshops will include spinal manipulation, non-thrust mobilisation, and manual neuromuscular re-education techniques all delivered within the context of understanding the relevance and importance of the emerging pain sciences literature.

Course Objectives:

1. Correctly perform comprehensive assessments for the Spine, Upper and Lower quadrants.
2. Present differential diagnoses based on clinical assessment for the case scenario.
3. Clinically reason the use of manipulations in relation to the patient presentation.
4. Safely demonstrate the manipulation techniques taught within the workshop.
5. Correctly show neuromuscular re-education using PNF and other facilitatory interventions.
