I’m chuffed as a ‘baby roo with two pouches’ to announce that despite some bogan drongo’s best efforts to keep me out, I will be visiting Australia early next year for the first time in over a decade to talk, rant, rave about all things physio, especially around shoulders.
As some of you may know I was originally invited to do these courses by a company who for reasons still not fully known decided to cancel more than six months before they were due. The explanation was a lack of interest, which may be true, but who the hell books onto a course 6 months before it’s due?
Anyway, after the cancellation of these courses I was amazed, flattered, and totally taken aback at the number of requests and expressions of interest I got to still come to Australia. So I am!
I’m happy as a ‘wombat with a didgeridoo’ to say that with the help and support of some amazing local therapists, we have planned a series of courses across Australia in February and early March 2018. I will mostly be doing my two-day workshop called ‘The Shoulder; Complex doesn’t have to be Complicated’ that attempts to cut through the endless, confusing, contradictory, gumpf, and bull shit that surrounds all things physio and shoulder pain.
My workshops are open to ALL therapists in ALL professions who work with people in pain who want a more simple and effective way to help. Please bring an open mind and a sense of humour, but don’t expect any fancy scapula algorithms, complex shoulder symptom modification procedures, intricate taping techniques, silly manual therapy, or stupid tri-planar rotator cuff exercises whilst standing on a fucking bosu ball.
Instead expect some strong opinions and even stronger language on how we need a more practical, honest, and evidence-based approach to the assessment and management of the most common causes of shoulder pain. The workshops promise to be fast-paced, informative, informal, but lots of fun with heaps of helpful hints and ideas on that you can put into practice immediately.
