3 of our physiotherapists, Emily, Adam and Emma, all made the trip up to Sydney last month to spend two days learning from the guru on Chronic Low Back Pain.  Peter O’sullivan is recognized internationally as a leading Clinician, Researcher and Educator in the management of complex musculoskeletal pain disorders. Peter studied manipulative physiotherapy in New Zealand in the 80s. 

Emily found it very interesting to hear Peter explain how much his practice has changed over years. He described now cringing at the thought of how he used to explain back pain to his clients.  These descriptions were deemed correct at the time but our practice has developed so much over the last 30 years.

Now, management is more educational and takes a functional / movement based approach to manage patient’s tricky chronic Back Pain, resulting in better outcomes for clients. The three physios walked out with a lot to think about and several new strategies and factors to consider when helping our patients. Check out for more information on Peter and his team.
