Course material


We all know that exercise is good for us. As therapists, we often use exercise to reduce patients’ acute and chronic pain, increase range of motion and muscle strength. But what if your patients can’t exercise or function because pain inhibits their movement or if exercise aggravates their condition? In this course you will practice techniques which provide effective treatment of neuromusculoskeletal disorders to allow patients to exercise earlier in the rehabilitation process, pain free.

How this is achieved?

Current trends in neuromusculoskeletal therapy (that traditionally relied primarily on mobilisation and manipulation), are moving away from passive techniques to a more active approach. Drawing on research and clinical experience, the presenter has developed a more dynamic manual therapy approach that utilises a combination of isometric exercise, active physiological oscillatory mobilisation, and end-of-range passive stretching.

Passive accessory movements still play a role in this concept, but are implemented following the active component of the concept. This method thus introduces a modified multimodal clinical approach with more active components than that found in traditional manual therapy models.

Therapeutic patient education including psychosocial input and exercise therapy are adjusted in line with the patient’s individual needs. All components of this method combine to produce an analgesic effect, increase range of motion and muscle strength, and may also help to boost the neuro- immune system.

What will you learn:

 Clinical assessment of spinal pain (lumbar, cervical and thoracic spine).
 Relevant clinical anatomy.
 Simple techniques to treat acute and chronic spinal pain.
 Reconciling biomechanics with pain science.
 Multimodal treatment approach for spinal pain.
 Exercise therapy for acute and chronic disorders.
* Live patient demonstration.

Benefits of the multimodal treatment approach:

 Restores soft tissue extensibility and joint mobility
 Reduces pain
 Relieves neural tissue pain disorders
 Improves muscle strength
 Improves proprioception
 Improves functional capabilities
 Increases therapist confidence in exercise prescription

Course length; this course is being taught over 3 separate days; Sat 9th, Tues 12th and Sat 16th Feb. you can attend one day, two days or all 3 days. you must however book on the course whether you want to attend just 1, 2 or all 3 days and let us know who many days you are attending and pay your fees accordingly.

About the presenter – Arie Michaeli MSc PT, MCMT

Arie is a manual and exercise therapist with a special interest in the rehabilitation of neuromusculoskeletal disorders focusing on the multimodal clinical concept.

With over 30 years of clinical experience and research, Arie has developed the Exercise and Function without Pain (EFWP) concept, a dynamic manual therapy approach that utilises a combination of isometric exercise, active physiological oscillatory mobilisation, and end-of-range passive stretching. The Exercise and Function without Pain workshop has been presented over 30 times in Southern Africa.
