“The content was interesting and more importantly applicable – previous Shoulder courses I have been on have been only theoretical or not relevant to my practice.”

Course Delegate

"The updates on recent evidence for rotator cuff function and relating it to rehab was useful. Andrew was very clear with his communication and made it digestible by relating it to treatment too. Thomas is a great teacher that is able to make practical techniques easy to follow and provides a reasoned explanation for how they may work…whilst embracing the uncertainty”.

Course Delegate

“It was a very detailed and informative course that I feel has helped me develop my knowledge and skills loads. Both lecturers were great and I felt I could always ask for further explanation on certain aspects if needed. Overall, it was a great course and I’d definitely recommend to any physio wanting to learn more about the upper limb”.

Course Delegate

“Thank you for a great course guys. I have a lot still to learn but this has given me some new treatment ideas that I can introduce straight away”.
