Furthermore, the course includes short interactive video quizzes in each unit, a total of 3 case studies that you can use to practice differential diagnosis per region, and 3 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.

  2. Another great course !


    After finishing the Orthopedic course for Lower & Upper limbs, I was looking forward to begin this Spine specific course.
    Really good overview about all spine pathologies from epidemiology to diagnosis & treatment which made me more confident to care for my future patients.
    The courses are well detailed with lot of informations and videos.
    For me these 2 courses are must to see to learn and update knowledge for most common pathologies in Physiotherapy.

  3. Highly methodical, with plenty of scientific reference


    Clear, structured and well researched course concerning most common pathologies of the spinal complex.
    Plenty of informative modules, with detailed video-analysis.
    If you’re looking for a course to study in your own time, with enough depth and scientific background, then you’ve found a very good one here.
    Bang for buck, a great course.

  4. very informative and updated


    for anyone who is lost in handling spine cases, this course is very helpful.

  5. Really well designed


    During the corona crisis, I booked many online courses and webinars, but none were as entertaining and well thought out as PhysioTutors’ courses.

    All units are well summarized, meaningfully broken down and easy to understand.

    I am looking forward to the other courses.

    Many greetings from Germany.

  6. Excellent course highly recommend


    As a newly graduated physiotherapist i highly recommend this course just to know you are on the right track with your patients. the information presented is very clear and easy to follow as well as the great physiotherapy style videos. It makes learning actually fun , thanks guys for all your hard work. Well deserved.

  7. The spine


    Really a well done course, using the modern ways of teaching. Compliments! Sometimes for me you entered too much into details instead of touching more important chapters of Spine treatment like techniques for the treatment of muscles and fascias.
