FAQs

1. Question: What is the difference between a course and a workshop?

Answer:

  • Courses are 1.5 days
  • Workshops are half day

We have received regular requests from local Physios interested in doing shorter workshops; however if you are an interstate or overseas Physio we would recommend you enrol in a more comprehensive 1.5 day course.

 

This year we are offering;

  • TMJ and introduction to cranial techniques – this 1.5 day course not only covers assessment and treatment of the TMJ, but also includes cervical spine functional techniques (in sitting) and neural techniques of both the upper and lower limb and cranial techniques. How all these may influence TMJ pain is covered.
  • Assessment and treatment of the TMJ – half day; at the completion of this shorter workshop you will be confident to treat the TMJ.

RTUS and Exercise

Both the 1.5 day and half day cover assessment and retraining of transverse abdominus and pelvic floor using RTUS and downtraining of phasic muscles.

In the 1.5 day course you will also learn upper and lower limb neural testing to improve recruitment of the stability muscles, RTUS quadratus femoris assessment and hip stability exercise programming.

2. Question: What is the 1:1 training?

Answer:

We offer 1:1 Training at our physio clinic in Sydney. This is ideal for learning RTUS or TMJ if you are unable to make it to one our courses or workshops. It is best to book this for 1.5 – 2 hours at a minimum. It is ideal to bring a friend or colleague so that you have someone to do the practical session with. These sessions are usually offered during the week, ideally Wednesday or Thursday between 10 and 4pm. Other times are available upon request. Your 1:1 training session will be with one of our Senior Physiotherapists – this is dependent on the time that you book. Please email; info@physiocoachingacademy.com for further details.

All courses, workshops and 1:1 sessions can be counted towards your CPD log. You will be issued with a Certificate with the details and hours of training of the session you have attended.

4. Question: If I am not a Physiotherapist can I still attend a course?
