In Luxembourg, after having taken note of the medical diagnosis/prescription, the physiotherapist establishes under his responsibility a physiotherapy diagnosis based on a functional assessment. Then, the physiotherapist decides on the best treatments to be used to manage patients suffering from neck pain safely and effectively (art. 7; Règlement grand-ducal du 6 novembre 2018 déterminant le statut, les attributions et les règles de l’exercice de la profession de santé de masseur-kinésithérapeute).

At the end of the course, the learner will master an evidence-based approach for the assessment and treatment of neck pain with a focus on manual therapy treatments of immediate implications in daily clinical practice.

Please note: Registrants must be licensed physiotherapists, medical doctors and occupational therapists in their respective state or country. Master students in Physiotherapy are also allowed to participate.
