Course Description

Presenter: Peter McCann

Osteopaths and MSK medicine practitioners are well aware of the benefits of heat therapy in practice. However much confusion surrounds the application of heat or cold in MSK conditions. This webinar will look at the research of low level continuous heat wrap therapy to discuss the advantages clinically for this type of thermotherapy currently used in major hospitals and in clinical trials with Australia’s leading back pain research team.

Learning Objectives:

* Osteopaths will gain an understanding of the application and science of low level continuous heat and the benefit in patient outcomes.
* Further knowledge of the clinical applications of heat in MSK medicine for osteopaths
* Osteopaths will gain a clinical tool to apply evidence based heat therapy and why third party insurers TAC, W/C and DVA fund heatwrap therapy
* Osteopaths will gain understanding of the research causing a shift in new treatment guidelines in back pain recommendations away from medications in favour of physical therapies, movement and education
* Practical clinical application tips using thermotherapy in commonly presenting MSK conditions
