Just done the coldest course in history. Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales was a festival of neck and headache assessment and treatment. Cranial nerves, Upper Cervical instability testing, Coats, Jumpers and cold hands. No heating and seriously parky…… NHS cuts in action.
Jolly Nice folk though.
Another chance to meet th egood people of Brazil and South America. The 5th International Congress on Manual Therapy attracts thousands of Physiotherapists from across South America and the World and is hosted in Fortaleza, Northern Brazil. It is an excellent congress and a beautiful part of th eworld. Here I am enjoying the motivational speaker at the opening ceremony with Palmiro (Br), Geoff(SA), Jack (CA) and Dan (Br) International Mulligan Teachers. Good Times.
Just a quick note to thank everyone in Rio for a fantastic course. Brazillians are extremely cool and very tolerant of bad samba dancing..
Special thanks to Dan Pilderwasser and Palmiro Torrieri Jnr for inviting me and looking after us so royally. See thier courses in Physio and Osteopathy at http://www.institutomulligan.com.br/paginas/professores.html
The first annual Hong Kong Spinal Course was held from the 13th to the 18th of October 2011. Nineteen delegates undertook the course with the winner of the 2011 Combined Movements Cup being Jenny Chan, from the Perfect Pointe Physiotherapy Practice. The course was run at Kerry Fung’s excellent teaching practice rooms and was organised by Colin Symmonds (The Body Group). A good time was had by all, especially the tutor, and next year’s course should be equally challenging but enjoyable. A big thanks to the organisers for an excellent course. See you in 2012
Dear Combined movers,
A NEW video of some cervical METs can be found on youtube.

Dear Combined Movers,
Due to the high number of requests for the slides from my presentation at the World Conference of Physical Therapy I have uploaded the slides on share point.
If you go to my full profile on linkedin – you will find the slides.
All the best.
Tuesday’s World Congress of Physical Therapy, Focussed Symposium on the Spinal Manipulation, raised the issue of the risk of manipulation and Cervical Artery Dissection. If you would like a copy of the slides (5MB file) from Dr Chris McCarthy’s Presentation on the issue please email Dr McCarthy using the contact form on this website.
Dr McCarthy is getting married tomorrow – ding dong the bells are going to chime…….
Recent work by an Osteopathic PhD student of mine (Dr Louise Potter) has shown that whilst the local, deep musculature twitches in response to manipulation it is not relevant to pain changes and is no different to the twich generated by a sham manipulation. So, the theory that spinal manipulation “reboots” the whole system looks a bit unlikely.
