Our courses offer you a simple approach to assessment, treatment and understanding of peripheral & spinal anatomy and conditions.

Concepts

Lower Limb

Knee

The Knee is comprised of both the Tibiofemoral and the Patellofemoral joints. This impressive joint works as a modified hinge joint. It permits flexion and extension at the knee and also small amounts of internal and external rotation of the tibia. Functionally the knee is capable of moving at high speeds and can withstand extremely high forces which are sustained through activities such as running, jumping and kneeling.

The stability of the knee is largely maintained thought the combination of strong ligamentous support, the structure of the meniscus and the activity of extensive muscles that cross the knee complex.

You will learn how to assess all the individual structures of the knee. Learn how to identify specific pathologies and use a wide range of physiotherapy interventions to resolve the patients symptoms and restore functional capacity to the knee.

Hip/SIJ

The hip and pelvic complex has amazing passive stability generated by the anatomical shape of the joints, the extremely strong ligaments that cross the joints and the huge force generating muscles that move and stabilise the joints.

Patients presenting with hip pain will cover a wide range of individuals. You will see the degenerative hip with chronic pathology and possible acute exacerbations in older populations. You will see the acute hip in sporting populations. Both can experience symptoms ranging from very mild to very painful and both can be extremely limited functionally.

Thorough examination and the appropriate treatment can generate amazing results for the patient

Shoulder

The shoulder is an extremely complex joint. The highly mobile glenohumeral joint requires extensive muscular stability to maintain function. It is also impacted by the acromioclavicular and sternoclavicular joints. The cervical and thoracic spine are also heavily implicated in the function of the shoulder.

Learn how this complex joint can be simplified into control and movement impairments and learn how to identify and address each component. From this you can select the best treatment techniques which can range from manual therapy to muscle control and strengthening of the shoulder girdle. This complex joint is the basis of much research and the ways of assessing and treating this region are evolving. Use the bite sized videos to get the up to date information on identifying and treating pathologies in the shoulder.

Lumbar Spine

The lumbar spine is commonly injured so it is vital you understand how to identify the impairment that is causing the patients pain. We will show you how to assess individual segments of the lumbar spine and assess the range of movement at each level in multiple directions. This will also include assessing the physiological and accessory mobilisations available at each level. The lumbar spine is a system of bones, discs, nerves and muscles that not only impact the lumbar spine but play an important role in the function of the pelvis and and through the thoracic spine to impact the cervical spine.

Manual therapy combined with exercises and importantly educating the patient regarding the pathology will bring about fantastic results. You will learn how to classify the lumbar spine dysfunction in to control impairment and movement impairments. From this you can pick the correct treatment technique which are shown in the videos in this section to address the impairment and bring about improvements in the patients pain and functional abilities.

Cervical Spine

The cervical spine is one of the most commonly implicated regions physiotherapists treat. The combination of facet joints, intervertebral discs, neural structures and a complex muscle system requires a structured and organised assessment approach.

We will show you how to simplify the assessment to identify the impairment of the cervical spine. You can learn which level or levels are implicated and how you can apply therapeutic manual therapy techniques, exercises and education to help give your patients relief from their symptoms.

Don’t be nervous of the cervical spine. Through good manual handling and clear clinical thought processes which we will teach you, you will develop your skills and get some amazing results for your patients.
