Le CEERRF a eu le privilège d’accueillir deux experts internationaux de renom, le Dr Paul Bliton et le Dr Raymond Butts, pour des cours spécialisés dans le domaine de la kinésithérapie.

Paull Bliton

A fresh perspective on pain assessment and treatment

Dr Paul Bliton, Associate Director AAMT, shared his expertise in courses dedicated to neurodynamics of peripheral joints for third-year students and pain assessment in therapy for second-year students. His teachings allowed for an innovative and in-depth approach to pain management. Students were able to explore treatment techniques from a new angle, offering a deeper understanding and more diversified application. This approach expanded their view of physiotherapy and encouraged them to consider different approaches in their future practice.
