As we succesfully organized a two-day seminar with Stuart Mcgill in February this year, we decided to invite more experts from around the world and bring them to this part of Europe. During the seminar we made contact with one of the McGill’s providers Aleksandar Dejanović and that is why we arranged a clinical seminar in May provided by Aleksandar himself.
