WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
Bloody awesome; Better than I expected; Most in-depth well-round symposium I have attended.
The symposium was amazing… As I told Dr. Nook I hope we can do these yearly. Not the same as in person but I felt like I was almost there with my mates! Thanks for all of your work and help… So fun and things I can bring to my practice. In fact just did a calf strength test with the mentioned app on a runner today!
I gained some very valuable information from the symposium. A special thank you to all of the organisers and presenters who put so much work into producing great content and streaming at all odd hours around the world to make this happen.

Sports chiropractors hold a unique place in the athlete’s journey, assisting the athlete every step of the way.
Whether it’s triaging at pitchside, providing treatment at the clinic or helping the athlete get ready for the Olympics.
This symposium is designed to expand your knowledge and set you up to work as a member of the medical team.
We have brought together top experts from all over the world for a truly global perspective through keynotes, lectures, and breakout sessions.
