There has been much recent debate about the association between manual therapy and adverse events relating to stroke and cervical artery dysfunction. This one-day masterclass draws content from recent evidence and provides tools to practitioners to enhance clinical reasoning in triaging their patients and making informed decisions with their patients about whether manual treatment is appropriate. Presentations and case-based discussions will enable participants to evaluate their current knowledge, identify their learning needs and provide current knowledge and skills-based training to enhance practice. Relevant theory, epidemiology, pathophysiology and clinical research will be used to give participants up-to-date knowledge and will be applied in the context of clinical reasoning. Appropriate choice of manual therapy interventions will be discussed. The course is relevant to both those who use manipulation and those who do not.
This course also reviews the theory and practice of receiving consent from a person-centred perspective. Underpinning ethical principles are discussed and practical examples used to share practice. Benefits, risk alternatives and the “no treatment” are explored using communication skills to anchor good practice. Consent person-centred care and related ideas are threaded throughout the course.
Detailed cases will be discussed in small groups with a focus on clinical reasoning. Participants will have an opportunity to evaluate their current knowledge, identify their learning needs and consider how the information taught in the course may influence their practice. The course opens with case-based discussions which are revisited at the end of the day. Case related discussion is also woven throughout the day with “real life” examples from practice. An opportunity to develop and revisit relevant clinical skills such as cranial nerve testing and the taking of blood pressure will also be part of the practical elements of the course.
The course will focus on giving delegates knowledge and skills that they can apply in their clinical work. It is relevant for all practitioners who see people with neck and head pain.
- Understand the pathophysiology and epidemiology of cervical artery dysfunction
- Clarify the relationship between manual therapy technique and risk when evaluating and treating the neck
- Identify risk factors for cervical artery dysfunction
- Gain experience of clinical reasoning and shared clinical decision making with patients
- Enhance and apply clinical methods in the examination of neck and head pain presentations

Roger is an experienced physiotherapist and academic with longstanding research and education interests in haemodynamics and manual therapy. He has published widely on clinical reasoning and risk related to cervical artery dysfunction. Roger was a member of the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapist working group for the recently published International Framework for Examination of the Cervical Region for potential of vascular pathologies of the neck prior to Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (OMT) Intervention: International IFOMPT Cervical Framework

Most of Steven’s working time is spent on research and education at the University College of Osteopathy. He held a clinical post as an osteopath in an NHS primary care setting for many years. His recent research has focused on reassurance, communication and consent, and safety in manual therapy. He was the lead researcher in the largest UK study investigating patient and osteopath’s experience of risk management and adverse events and consent. Steven has published widely and been involved in the development of NICE’s clinical guidelines for low back pain and sciatica and is a Member of a WHO Guideline Expert Review Team.
