The Biopsychosocial Approach in Physiotherapy Practice

Introduction:

During this one hour, online course for physiotherapists, Antony Lo and Robin Kerr will challenge biases and belief systems originating from the heavily entrenched posturo-biomechanical approach. Concepts such as core stability, mechanical diagnosis and most importantly the why and how of how things actually work (or don’t work) are challenged.

This course will examine current controversies in therapy and the fitness industry.

This is not a “product” aimed at being a part of a compulsory ongoing training system but more of a “jam session” between two very different clinicians, who after reading the research, have come from completely different angles to the same conclusions. Most importantly they have been able to amalgamate their clinical applications. Designed to be highly clinically relevant, research-supported motion and exercise applications are presented, suitable for use the next working day in client populations ranging from persistent pain to athletic conditioning.

You Will Learn:

  • Challenge therapist and fitness professional’s biases and belief systems particularly in relation to entrenched posturo-biomechanical systems, e.g. manual therapy, core stability and systematized exercise prescription.
  • Highlight the lack of quality research evidence base for commonly used therapeutic interventions.
  • Illuminate the tendency of therapists and fitness professionals to form “Silos”, which possibly limits their therapy and exercise repertoire and outcomes.
  • Stimulate the ability of practitioners to challenge themselves rather than accept dogmatic treatment systems.
