Quality Private Physiotherapy: Making an Impact
We have a very exciting line up of speakers for you at our Physio First 2018 Conference, packed full of clinical applications, the latest research interpreted by expert researchers and clinicians in a wide range of subjects and conditions that we see every day in our clinics.
“Lots of ‘use on Monday’ knowledge”
We are pleased to announce that international speakers Dean Watson, whose specialist areas are cervicogenic headache and migraine; and Michael Shacklock, who will share his years of expertise in neurodynamics will be joining us from Australia. Many of us will have Michael’s best-selling textbook Clinical Neurodynamics on our bookshelf!
Closer to home we look forward to listening to Professor Annina Schmid who researches the pathophysiology and management of entrapment neuropathies; Dr Lorenzo Masci - Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine and lead Sports Physician for London Wasps Rugby will share his expertise on managing difficult tendinopathy. Anju Jaggi, Consultant Physiotherapist specialising in shoulder dysfunction and pain, Dr Ruth Jones on pelvic floor function, Chris Mercer Consultant Physiotherapist and past chair of the MACP on spinal masqueraders and last but definitely not least the University of Brighton update on Data for Impact.
In each of their specialist areas our 2018 speakers are making an impact on physiotherapy research and practice. In the healthcare market place we as Physio First members need effective clinical and business skills to make an impact too with Quality Private Physiotherapy.
Once again we will be offering an extensive trade exhibition where you can meet the exhibitors at our Friday night buffet and take part in the great competitions on offer. We will also be holding our Saturday night buffet event a little differently this year so don’t forget to book your tickets.
Come join us and make an impact at Physio First Conference 2018!
