The JO Learn & Ski seminar will again take place in Grimentz, the town that hosts the arrival of the Grand Raid, the 125 kilometer mountain bike race that starts in Verbier.
The Grimentz resort offers great skiing, especially since Grimentz has been connected by cable car to the ski domain of Zinal.
Our hotel, the four-star Hotel Alpina, is located at the foot of the two cable car stations that take you up to the slopes. Those of you who have participated at last year’s seminar, remember the excellent hotel and it’s restaurant. Lectures will again be held at the nearby inside sport premises.

This years’ program was presented by three lecturers on which you find information in the enclosed brochure. The confirmed speakers are Prof Dr med Petra Schweinhardt who is the head of the Department of Chiropractic Medicine at the Balgrist University Hospital and our colleague Dr Michael Vianin, DC, who has Master degree in Rehabilitation Sciences. The third speaker, Dr Mathieu Saubade, holds a degree in sports medicine and works at the university hospital in Lausanne. He specialises in physical rehabilitation.    

Why the title
Up-to-Sky & Down-to-Earth » ? Here the explanation of our JO-man Philippe :  « Cela se réfère à la recherche (dans les nuages) et à la médecine du sport et podologie (les pieds sur terre) ».  Be assured this is going to be a most exciting and interesting seminar.

Basics of Functional Neurology  -  Introductory Module     
Saturday, October 28  -  Sunday, October 29. 2023

Dr Nicole Oliver, DC and Dr Karl Stalaker, DC

The clinical benefit associated with manual therapy is not simply related to restoring movement to restricted joints and normalising local muscle tone through segmental reflex effects. A major therapeutic role is attributed to activation of the central nervous system (CNS) – in recent years the literature is saying this more and more. It is thought that many chronic or treatment-resistant musculoskeletal conditions are perpetuated by ongoing neurological dysfunctions or maladaptive post-injury changes in the CNS. It has also been suggested that a neurorehabilitative approach is what is needed to more successfully manage such chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
This seminar aims to teach you the basics of functional neurology in a simple and
easy-to-understand way. It will provide you with fundamental knowledge of nervous  system structure and function, as well as teaching examination techniques related to the cerebellum, cranial nerves and eye movements. You will also learn the basic  principles of neuro-rehabilitation. The seminar will be interactive with numerous practical sessions to develop your newly learnt skills and emphasize the clinical application of the material taught.
