CPD Courses with Dr Carl Todd

These CPD courses use a combination of functional, structural, assessment, treatment and biopsychosocial approaches to manage the athlete. This helps provide clinicians with a practical based skill, which can be integrated directly into their clinical or sporting environments. The techniques can be used as effective treatment tools to address both muscular and joint-related issues, improve fluid dynamics and reduce pain.

They would benefit anyone working in a clinical and or sporting environment, with special reference to osteopaths, physiotherapists, chiropractors and sports therapists. A certificate of attendance and 14 hours CPD will be awarded upon completion of each course.

Dr Carl Todd is a registered osteopath and qualified lecturer with a PhD in orthopaedics and clinical science, a masters degree in sport injury medicine and an honours degree in osteopathy. Carl is a director of Carl Todd Clinics and practises at both our Corsham and Swindon clinics.
