Modalities covered in the programme include:

• advanced diagnostic techniques
• advanced muscle testing
• proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF)

Each workshop specifically covers the knowledge and practical skills needed to successfully treat a wide range of commonly presenting conditions.

The anatomy of the spine and the peripheral joints are explored to a deeper extent by a variety of media, including video presentations of dissected cadavers.

This is a practical workshop programme focused on learning additional specific techniques to treat a multitude of common conditions.
On completion of all 6 workshops in the programme a formal 'Certificate of Completion of the Advanced Remedial Programme' will be awarded.
