Howard is also available to provide bespoke in-house training and CPD. His particular interests are disorders of the pelvis, hip and groin pain, clinical reasoning, lumbar spine assessment and treatment and myofascial and manipulative treatment of spinal dysfunction. These topics are linked to his Masters-programme teaching at University. He has taught the Hip and Groin module of the Queen Mary University of London Sports Medicine Masters for 15 years, he teaches Pelvis on Masters programmes at Kings College London and Birmingham University and he teaches Clinical Reasoning of the Lumbar Spine on the Bath University Sports Medicine Masters. He has provided in-house training to numerous hospital departments and clinics, UK Athletics, the English Institute of Sport, the RFU, Welsh Rugby and various other teams and football clubs. His formal courses are as follows:

This one-day course covers the clinical reasoning and practical application of myofascial technique in the treatment of spinal dysfunction. Myofascial techniques aim to stretch and reflexively release patterns of soft tissue restriction to movement so the course covers the assessment and treatment of relevant trigger points, segmental muscle overactivity and fascial restrictions to movement. Differentiation between articular and myofascial restriction to movement will be practiced in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spines. This course was written at the request of the Education Committee of the Physiofirst organisation to accompany it's 2015 Annual Conference entitled Soft Tissue; the Hard Truths.
