We are diverse in our backgrounds and education which means we might not always agree…..But what we don’t disagree on is that we all take pride in helping our patients get better.

Whatever you prescribe, whether it is manual therapy, Mulligan, McKenzie, functional retraining, exercise, education, Bobath, NDT, ART, MRT, MFR, does not necessarily matter.

What defines us as a profession is that we care.

This online physiotherapy course for all of us. This course is about the essential skills we as physiotherapists must all embody.

This course is designed to challenge the way we learn and the way we approach our practice.
