I am a student in the Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy program at RMIT University.
Clinical Myotherapy is a branch of manual medicine that focuses on the treatment and management of musculoskeletal pain including myofascial pain (trauma or muscle contracture), neuropathic pain (nervous system) and articular pain (joints).
Clinical Myotherapists use a variety of treatments such as deep tissue, myofascial dry needling, electrical stimulation, prescriptive and rehabilitation exercises, joint mobilisation and pain management techniques.
I completed the intense and very difficult 12-week Medical Neuroscience course designed by Dr Leonard White (faculty member of the Duke University School of Medicine).
Overall, my experience of Medical Neuroscience 2016 was especially self-motivating, and rewarding. I liked the many excellent and creative contributions from participants that helped my own learning process. The culturally diverse cohort course of 2016 represented an historic opportunity to participate in a cohort before the closure of the session-based platform for Medical Neuroscience. It also represented an opportunity to receive a certificate with distinction, which was awarded to a grade above 90%.
