A new look at spinal and musculoskeletal joint pain

This seminar will provide GPs with a comprehensive update on diagnosis, treatment and management techniques of three common yet challenging spinal conditions.

The program will cover the entire patient journey. From diagnosis to treatment, through to rehabilitation and recovery. We will also explore radiofrequency techniques to treat chronic large joint pain.
