Let me teach you the latest evidenced-based techniques
Due to the ever-changing body of evidence, expertise is something of a moving target. However, after 20+ years experience of treating the neck and 10 years experience teaching clinicians how to do the same, it’s fair to say that I have acquired a certain level of mastery. My experience as a teacher, researcher, and clinician has given me a certain level of contextual understanding and an appreciation for the bigger picture. I work hard to convey this in the courses because I know how challenging it can be to treat neck pain. -Chris Durall, PT, DPT, SCS, LAT, CSCS
