  • Overview

These case studies will cover a range of different pain presentations, outlining the case details and discussing a particular area of interest that the case demonstrates. Therefore, these webinars will be relevant for many other disciplines of the Physiotherapy profession. As each pain registrar is completing the College of Physiotherapy Specialist training programme, the case study presentations will be of particular interest to current registrars and anyone considering future participation in the Specialist training programme.
