Introduction & Basic PrinciplesOur orthopedic physiotherapy course offers a fantastic learning opportunity for all levels of physiotherapists: students, starting physiotherapists, and experienced physiotherapists who want to rehearse, broaden and deepen their knowledge in orthopedic physiotherapy. No prerequisites required!
You will develop a structured approach to screening, patient-history taking, assessment, and intervention of the most common injuries in the upper and lower extremities. This course will take you deeper into the clinical reasoning and understanding behind physical examination. So while our videos on YouTube might answer “how” things are done, this course will help you to understand the “why”!
For each pathology, you will be able to:
- understand the incidence and prevalence
- judge its course based on negative prognostic factors
- define the pathophysiological mechanism of injury
- recognize clinical signs & symptoms
- form a diagnosis and conduct special testing
- propose treatment recommendations
The content constantly refers to the latest research and science so you know your skills are up to date. Furthermore, you will develop a clinical pattern for each pathology during the course. Do it well and you walk away with a valuable resource to use during your studies or in the clinic.
Furthermore, the course includes short video quizzes in each unit, a total of six case studies that you can use to practice differential diagnosis per body region, and three chapter quizzes to assess your learning process and to solidify your newly acquired knowledge! Submitting these assignments will award you credits you can redeem for solutions to the case studies.
We are sure that after taking this course you will be more confident in dealing with patients during your internship or in practice who present with new complaints!
