PODCAST: The role of manual therapy in modern healthcare and an osteopathic approach to lateral elbow pain and frozen shoulder

For this episode, we hear from the highly knowledgeable and inspiring Dr Wael Mahmoud. Wael had the privilege of learning under some of the great names in osteopathy and has followed in their footsteps, becoming an educator, mentor and passionate practitioner. He is the director of CPD Health Courses and in 2021 published Two Hands: The Gamechanger Guide for Manual Therapists, a book that celebrates the unique gift osteopaths have as manual therapists and how they can thrive as healthcare professionals.
