When it comes to teaching in the areas of pain management, rehabilitation, and the function of the human body, you can’t get much better than Brendan & Luke. Most importantly, I liked how they simplified a very complex topic in a way that makes it both practical and user-friendly for any health care professional. The live case studies were certainly my favourite part of the course. Now I have a clear system to treat my patients and ensure they get back to the life they deserve living.
