2017 Tas Branch Forum - Retraining for Optimal Performance

The 2017 Annual Forum welcomes Trish Wisbey-Roth, FACP, as its keynote speaker. 

Trish will present "Getting the most from your rehab programs: retraining Neurotags and Virtual Body for optimal recovery". 

As the research battle between a rehabilitation focus on functional and biological factors as opposed to psychosocial and environmental factors continues, many Physiotherapists are left feeling overwhelmed and unsure how to achieve the best long term results for their patients with evidence based practice.

 The aim of this presentation is to condense the varied and complex research on mind and body rehabilitation and suggest some clinical, structured and functional strategies to incorporate into rehab programs to build confidence in movement and positively influence Neurotags via neuroplasticity principles. 

The forum program will also showcase a range of local speakers and presentations.
