Toby Hall - Physical evaluation and treatment of neural tissue pain disorders

The course will cover the anatomical, physiological and functional basis to the evaluation of neural tissue pain disorders of the upper and lower quarter. Of special interest will be clinical practice, emphasizing evidence-based clinical examination, evaluation, interpretation, differential diagnosis and treatment.


This course will be conducted in lecture, tutorial and workshop format for the clinician or academic who is interested in manual therapy, manual medicine or musculoskeletal medicine. It is anticipated that the course content will be suitable to individuals who are seeking new knowledge, to individuals seeking to expand their knowledge and to those individuals seeking the stimulation of clinical interaction. Whilst the course will be presented at a high level this should not be seen as a barrier to participation for those with little or with no previous experience in this special area. As a result of attending the course it is anticipated that participants will gain personal satisfaction as in a variety of ways which will enhance their individual requirements. There are therefore no pre-requisites for participation.


Presenter:

Dr Toby Hall PhD, MSc, Post Grad Dip Manip Ther, FACP. Adjunct Associate Professor (Curtin University)

Toby qualified as physiotherapist in 1985. He completed a post grad diploma in manipulative therapy at Curtin University in 1990, an MSc by thesis in 1996, and a PhD in 2010. He was awarded a Fellowship of the Australian College of Physiotherapists in 2007, and is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. Toby has lectured extensively in manual therapy within Australia and more than 35 countries. Toby is an Associate Professor at Curtin University. He is also an accredited Mulligan Concept teacher. Toby has presented at many conferences, published many book chapters and published more than 110 articles relating to neural tissue dysfunction, cervicogenic headache and the Mulligan Concept. He is the author of 3 textbooks: Mobilisation with movement: The art and the science (Elsevier 2013) and The Mulligan Concept of Manual Therapy: Textbook of Techniques (1st & 2nd Edn Elsevier 2014 & 2019). Toby is on the international advisory panel of The Journal of Musculoskeletal Disorders and is an associate editor for the Journal of Manual and Manipulative Therapy.


Course Aims:

To develop a strong evidence-based biomedical basis towards the examination, evaluation and physical treatment of neural tissue pain disorders of the upper and lower quarter.

To provide or enhance knowledge of the pathoanatomical and pathophysiological mechanisms of neural tissue pain disorders of the upper and lower quarter.

To promote an understanding of the mechanisms for patient presentations of dysfunction such as in neural tissue pain disorders of the upper and lower quarter.

To develop an ability to evaluate and differentially diagnose neural tissue pain disorders of the upper and lower quarter.

To develop or enhance the ability based on evidence of how to determine when physical treatment is indicated or contra-indicated in neural tissue pain disorders of the upper and lower quarter.

To develop the ability to prescribe and apply appropriate physical treatments for neural tissue pain disorders of the upper and lower quarter.
