Jan and Christina recently attended the New Zealand Manipulative Physiotherapy conference in Rotorua themed "back to the future". This course covered a range of topics from osteoarthritis to disorders of the neck. It really raised the awareness of seeking early treatment and advice after a concussion to reduce long term symptoms such as neck pain, headaches and dizziness.
They had a blast and loved the excuse to get dressed up!
