Update: Current Research and Education at Physioworks Health Group

 

Complex Injuries and Management Presentation

Passing on clinical knowledge is an important role for a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. As a leader in his field, Physioworks Director Andrew Dalwood was recently invited to present at an Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) forum to over 70 physiotherapists from around the country on Complex Injuries and Management.

Andrew was able to convey his extensive clinical experience as well as some of his learning’s from recent discussions in London with top UK Sports Physiotherapists on this subject matter and welcomed the challenging questions from his industry colleagues in discussing best, leading edge clinical practices.

Andrew will be presenting a follow up presentation in October: Correct Diagnosis and Advanced Injury Management.

All of the clinical processes detailed and presented by Andrew are adopted and utilised on a daily basis by the dedicated team of health professionals at Physioworks Health Group.
