"Excellent course, it has clarified a lot of neurological questions"
Annina's course provides a mechanism-oriented approach that will enable you to understand and incorporate the latest pain physiology related to entrapment neuropathies into your diagnostic and treatment reasoning framework.
- To enable the participants to understand the basic principles of pain physiology associated with entrapment neuropathies and to incorporate this knowledge into their reasoning framework
- To learn about the opportunities and challenges of a mechanism based diagnostic approach for patients with entrapment neuropathies
- To be familiar with recent evidence on the mechanisms of action of common interventions for entrapment neuropathies
Through an improved understanding of the basic principles of pain physiology, this course focusses on the opportunities and challenges of a mechanism based diagnostic approach. The improved assessment skills and clinical reasoning framework will translate into a more effective management of patients with entrapment neuropathies. Understanding of the pain mechanisms at play will also improve prognostic decisions and will enable physiotherapists to make adequate decisions in regards to referrals for medical opinions.
Annina will be attending our annual conference on Saturday 28 April, therefore be sure to book your place to see her informative lecture also.
This course is a must for those in private practice who treat patients with nerve entrapment and who have an enquiring mind. If questions such as
- What happens to a nerve at a microscopic and macroscopic level following insult, pressure or injury?
- What happens at a molecular and biochemical level?
- What responses to insult occur in the central nervous system?
- Which tests can I employ in the practice to differentiate between small fibre and large fibre damage or injury?
- What response does my manual therapy, exercise prescription and management have on these problems?
If this is of interest to you, then this is a course for you. Dr Schmid is one of those rare individuals in our profession who has been able to move effortlessley from the clinical world into the world of academia and research. This is an impressive feat in itself but she has the additional gift of being able to convey the results of her work to a clinical audience. Having trained as a Physiotherapist in Switzerland she undertook further postgraduate study in Australia completeing a Masters in manipulative therapy followed by a PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Queensland and is hence well qualified to present this material.
After attending Annina's course you will never again think that the neuro exam is something you do just to tick the boxes. She is very good at showing how important the neuro exam is and what it REALLY means and, how this affects your clinical reasoning and therefore treatment. She manages to blend her research findings and clinical knowledge seamlessly - you are in for a treat!
