CPD Dinner Forum in Alice Springs with Dr Geoff Thompson

The NT PHN invites clinicians with an interest in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal injuries and disease, to a professional development dinner with sports & exercise physician, Dr Geoff Thompson.

Assessing and Managing Common Musculoskeletal Problems in Primary Clinical Practice: Part One – Knee and Shoulder Part One.


Dr Geoff Thompson is a very expe­ri­enced Sports and Exer­cise Physi­cian. His pro­fes­sion­al inter­ests are very broad, hav­ing treat­ed all sports for many years both in cov­er­age, treat­ment and pre­ven­tion. Pre­ven­tion pro­grams are one of his specialties in active peo­ple or those wish­ing to be active.

Geoff also specialises  in chronic illness prevention and treatment through the use of exercise as medicine and can advise on highly complex long term musculoskeletal and cardiovascular medical issues.

Geoff has been practising in the NT for 53 years, and visiting Alice Springs on a regular basis for 36 years. For the last 15 years he has been the Senior Sports Physician for Australian Paralympic Team.
