Speaker Ben Cormack


Owns and runs Cor-Kinetic, which follows a philosophy based around an understanding of modern movement, pain, and neurosciences to give a person centred approach to rehabilitation and physical training within a strong evidence based framework. He is a musuloskeletal therapist with a clinical background in sports therapy, rehabilitation, pain science, & exercise stretching back 15 years. He specializes in a movement & exercise based approach with a strong education component and patient centred focus. Ben is a popular international presenter who has delivered conferences presentations and courses all over the world.


This is NOT JUST another course telling you movement is important or showing you some new exercises but a course about PEOPLE who move and how to actually apply movement and exercise to them in an informed way.

You could describe it as clinical reasoning for exercise and rehab! It is NOT about the BEST exercise for back pain, a system or a protocol but instead what might work for YOUR patient.

Many therapists struggle taking modern academia around pain and movement and translate it into practical application. This course will outline how to simply apply both physical & cognitively driven components for a therapeutic approach based around HUMANS rather than simply their structures.
