We are delighted to announce that we have secured yet another high profile speaker with a topic that is of such relevance and importance to ALL therapists. How many times have we all been asked about the medication one of our patients are currently taking or been asked to offer advice as to what medication could assist our patients with the presenting problems. Do you know and are you aware of the common everyday drugs that can have a profound effect on soft tissues and therefore the reaction to soft tissue treatments. All this and far more vital information will be discussed and explained. This one afternoon can and will make you a far more rounded, competent and skilled practitioner in the treatment and management of your own patients.

David will be covering the medico-legal framework relating to advising patients on the use of pain control medication. He will focus upon ‘over the counter’ analgesics and how these can be used safely to optimise pain relief in musculoskeletal conditions. We are delighted to welcome David to come and lecture for the Saturday afternoon, his credentials and experience are impressive. Fozzy himself has previously attended one of David’s presentations and found it so very useful on a daily basis in clinic.
