Featured speakers

Prof Craig Allingham - Men's Health Physiotherapist

Craig transitioned from his career in elite sports medicine following his fourth Olympic Games in Sydney to use his skills with an entirely new client base - men recovering from prostate cancer treatment. Using sports science and physiotherapy tools he developed effective programs to help restore continence and erectile function in these men. Along the way he also realised that men process health information differently and the communication of any program is as important as the actual content, or perhaps more so. Craig will share these ideas and provide practical suggestions for any of us working with male clients. He will also introduce his innovative 'Floor It' app which places a pelvic floor coach in the hands of men working on their recovery. Craig is based on the Sunshine Coast from where he travels to teach and learn, keeps a few bee hives and enjoys rude health.
