Dr Capobianco will kick off the Movement Seven Summit on the 16th of November with his session on the Mind-Body Approach to Manual Therapy with the Embodied Care Model.

Dr Capobianco challenges the dualistic approach to traditional manual therapy whereby there is an inherent separation of the biological from the psychosocial aspects of patient care/recovery. An interoceptive model will be presented to provide an actionable mind-body system to improve patient outcomes. Dr Capobianco will highlight some of the tools and education models and demonstrate how we put it into action.

Steve will be delivering a presentation titled Running from Seven Injuries - How can you help?

Despite all that we do to avoid it, many runners are frequently battling with niggles as they complete their weekly mileage. And we all know that telling a runner to rest is a likely to be a waste of breath! Unless it’s a stress reaction/fracture, complete rest is rarely required. A better approach, and one that has more likelihood of success, is to help them to keep running whilst they work through the issues with reduced mileage, localised treatment and some remedial exercise. This session will demonstrate a number of different techniques that can help you manage seven of the most common running injuries that your clients may present with.
