Course Testimonial

Eleanor Currie

"I did the Lateral Hip & Buttock Pain course and I found it to be immediately useful in my daily clinical practice. Sometimes online courses can be either too difficult to follow, or too simplistic - the content in Dr Grimaldi's course is clear and concise and the descriptions on the videos provide some added information. I will definitely be doing the other courses Dr Alison Grimaldi has on her website."

Eleanor Currie - Physiotherapist, New Zealand
