2017 Connective Tissue Course (Fourie)

An integrated approach – understanding our connective tissue

“Its role in the management of Complaints after Breast Cancer Treatment”

Manchester: Level 1 – September 9th, 10th and 11th, 2017, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust

Level 1 course:  The goal will be to share with you how normal day-to-day function is changed by interference with the fascial and connective tissue anatomy.  By understanding how various systems interlink to determine function, we can explore new and integrated treatment strategies as a tool to relieve the post surgical and radiotherapy trauma following breast surgery including reconstruction.  Participants will develop skills for evaluating and treating of individual patients using an integrated approach.

This workshop will be an intense mix of theory and practical work, and the number of participants will therefore be limited.  Suitable for Physiotherapists / Therapists working with breast, cancer patients, e.g. Oncology / Women’s Health, Primary Care and Musculoskeletal settings.
