Toby and Kim are members of the Australian College of Physiotherapists, achieving Specialist Physiotherapist status in 2007.

The primary aim of the programme is to integrate joint, muscle and neural tissue based manual therapy concepts to provide a comprehensive approach to the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain disorder. The syllabus is a bio-psychosocial approach, which incorporates a range of manual therapy concepts. Of special interest will be clinical practice, emphasizing clinical examination, evaluation, interpretation, differential diagnosis and therefore classification and treatment. Management is based on identification of specific sub-groups amenable to manual therapy including movement impairment and motor control impairments, and neural tissue pain disorders. Screening for negative prognostic factors will also be taught as it is important to screen out patients unsuitable for manual therapy.

Assessment of movement impairment incorporates the Combined Movement approach, as well as segmental manual diagnosis. Treatment for the movement impairment (articular dysfunction) sub-group is eclectic and includes a broad range of mobilisation, manipulation (high velocity thrust) and mobilisation with movement techniques.
