Stort Physio Academy

Stort Physio Academy was started to provide education and information for the general public, new post graduate physiotherapists and other health professionals.

Seminars for the general public

Wendy Emberson has been providing seminars and talks for clubs and groups for many years and these have also been brought in under the “Stort Physio Academy” banner.

A new innovation that we piloted in 2015, was to provide monthly 2 hour seminars on a variety of topics for patients and their friends.

The talks covered the following topics:

  1. Low back pain
  2. Headaches
  3. Shoulders
  4. Knees
  5. Feet and ankles
  6. Necks
  7. Posture - Adult & children
  8. Pain
  9. Exercise
  10. Relaxation/stress
  11. Post joint surgery
  12. Ribs and breathing
  13. Falls prevention
  14. Lifting and handling

We plan to open these talks up to anyone who wants to listen and to learn more about the relevant simple anatomy, pathology and treatment for the common conditions under the various headings. The concept is to provide simple self-help strategies for these conditions and to deal with any misconceptions and misunderstandings that people may have. Education and understanding removes fear and puts the patient in control.
