Spring CPD day at Oxford Brookes University
We are so excited as the months of preparation are coming to a head and we can finally unveil an incredible day of CPD at a brilliant price! We have listened to our members and heard that you want a bit of everything, rather than a focus for the day, so we’ve got professional issues covered by the two most powerful men in Osteopathy today, Tim Walker CEO of the GOsC, and Maurice Cheng (BOA), who will be letting us know all about what’s happening to our profession, and answering questions from us. We also have Clareon coming to tell us about how we should be focusing our marketing resources, and we look forward to picking Mark Spolander, and Mike Paton’s brain’s, and then finally we are very pleased to confirm Dr Eyal Lederman’s going to be giving us an afternoon of practical entitled ‘How to treat an acute disc’.
We are very lucky to be able touse the facilites at Oxford Brookes’ Marston Road Campus with permission from Haidar Ramadan, and Steven Castleton, and this has allowed us to keep the price at a very reasonable £65 for members (£80 for non-members, and £50 for student members).
Please note places are limited and we require booking online to reserve your place. You can book here…

1-5pm Practical Session – “How to treat the acute disc” by Dr Eyal Lederman
A highly practical workshop exploring the management of acute disc and low back pain. There will a discussion of current research findings and how they can be integrated into a manual/physical therapy practice to manage acute spinal presentations. The workshop will address the aetiology, the underlying physiological and neurological processes as well as psychological-behavioural aspects of the condition.
During the workshop participants will be introduced to a ‘Process Approach’ in osteopathy in which the focus is on management that supports the processes associated with functional recovery. In particular, repair processes associated with spinal tissue healing and alleviation of pain. There will be also a discussion about the failure of structuralism as model for explaining and treating spinal conditions.
The workshop will also address self care management for the patient. The participants will be introduced to ‘Functioncise’, a practical movement approach in which normal daily activities are amplified to provide the challenges necessary for recovery.
A whole day (8 hours) of CPD for only:
£80 non members
