Shoulder Courses

Title screen


As a physio with an interest in the shoulder I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the world’s leading experts in this area in various settings and have learnt much from them. However, I found that there is an overwhelming amount of confusing and conflicting opinions, methods, and research in how to assess and manage shoulder problems, and I’ve found many are overly complicated which never sat well with me.

I’ve always found a simple, straight forward approach works well with most things including most shoulder issues. This left me wondering there must be a way to demonstrate how keeping it simple is both effective and evidenced based for the management of the shoulder. So I designed my own course that demonstrates although shoulders are complex, they don’t have to be complicated.


This fast paced, infomation packed course is firmly based in the latest research as well as my own clinical experience and is constantly updated. It demonstrates how our assessments and treatments are surrounded with uncertainty, and how they are not as specific or sensitive as many would like us to think. As distressing as this may sound I show how this can be the exact opposite, and how it can allow you to focus on what matters the most, the patient.

This course has been developed over a decade of experience and has taken two years of painstaking work, and has even lead to three small clinical research trials.

Now in its third year, and hosted in locations both nationally and internationally, these widely acclaimed courses aim to be informative, informal, and fun. Presented in my own unique and occasionally controversial style we explore the myths, misconceptions and bull shit that surround physiotherapy looking for a simpler way forward!

For an idea of my course see this short video below…


This course aims to give ALL therapists the confidence that simplifying the shoulder is evidenced based and effective, as well as provide lots of useful, practical helpful hints and tips that can be put into practice immediately.
