Tonight: Wellbeing Seminar on Movement



Following the success of last week's seminar on "Resistance Training and Other Exercise for Optimal Ageing", presented by Professor Maria Fiatarone Singh, the Wellbeing Committee invites members to view the next in its Eat,Sleep,Move series.

"Movement", on Thursday, 18 February 2021, will be presented by Josephine Key, an author, mentor and practising neuromuscular-skeletal physiotherapist. Josephine has over 40 years of clinical experience and 30 years as the principal physiotherapist at Edgecliff Physiotherapy Sports and Spinal Centre. Her passion for bodies, their optimal function and how dysfunction drives pain states, underpins her work.

Josephine’s treatment approach distils the complex academic evidence, but enhances it with practical approaches inspired from multiple eastern and western manual and movement disciplines. She has refined this knowledge and developed a simple classification system which can be used to guide treatment approaches – The Key Approach. This is explained in her book: Back Pain: A Movement Problem. Josephine has a particular interest in the nature of movement – understanding what constitutes natural healthy control and the relationship between altered axial posturomovement control and many pain disorders – in particular those relating to the spine.

Attendance will attract 1 CPD point in the Practice Management and Business Skills strand.
