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. However, the focus throughout the programme is on the understanding and use of practical techniques to address specific problems and conditions. This is a practical workshop programme focused on learning additional specific techniques to treat a multitude
of common conditions.
