Event description

Description

Due to COVID-19 - this course has been postponed for 2020.

Do you have patients who lose their voice, complain of throat pain, or have swallowing issues?

Do you understand the relationship between the larynx, neck and TMJ?

Discover how Vocal Physiotherapy can assist you to assess and manage laryngeal dysfunction - the missing link. This course has been designed specifically for physiotherapists or osteopaths who wish to learn more about the larynx, voice and Vocal Physiotherapy treatment.

Module 2 is the second practical module of Vocal Physiotherapy 1 & 2 where you will learn techniques that will be immediately applicable in your daily clinical practice. Module 2 will take your skills and understanding to the next level integrating your clinical rationale and understanding the clinical implications of voice and larynx dysfunction and importantly, how to tackle it.
