    Perfect course with uptodate knowledge and fine quizes.
    I liked the way corse structured: from epidemiology and screening to assessment, exercise ideas and prognostic factors.
    Test in the end of the course is great idea to check your knowledge.

  4. Erg interessante en praktijkgerichte cursus!


    Een heel praktisch gerichte cursus om rotatorcuff gerelateerde schouderklachten aan te pakken. Heeft mij echt nieuwe inzichten en motivatie gegeven om met schouderklachten aan de slag te gaan! Je kan de cursus op je eigen tempo thuis volbrengen met regelmatig een quiz en leuke praktische video’s.

  5. RCRSP Course!


    Excellent course with the latest EB information! Higly recommend it!

  6. Erg fijne praktijk gerichte cursus


    Goede state of the art schouder cursus met fijne focus op het praktische aspect van het vak! Goede duidelijke instructie filmpjes en mooi voorbeeld materiaal wat meteen in de praktijk te gebruiken is!

  7. Good course to learn and understand more about the Shoulder


    I liked this course because it is connecting evidence based with the practical understanding of cuff related problems. The way the course is given suits me because mr Struyf is not dictating he is explaining with an open mind.

  8. Amazing course!


    Can highly recommend this course. Step by step you will be guided towards up to date knowledge about rotator cuff related shoulder pain. The Information is very well presented, not to long not to short. It helped me allready to make better treatment descisions in practice with patients. They often come with “impingement” diagnosis and ideas of their subacromial space being to small. Thanks to this course not only my communication is better towards those patients but also my clinical reasoning goes better and I am able to make better treatment plans within a realistic time frame. Thank you!

  9. RCRSP Course Review


    A great course guided by up to date knowledge. It provides a good overview of rotator cuff related shoulder pain and the best research and treatment options following the latest evidence. In addition there is a lot of exercise and practice material to test your knowledge.

  10. Review


    Very interesting course, which allows you to improve your knowledge and your care with the patient, I highly recommend!

  11. review RC related shoulderpain


    Naar mijn gevoel werd het theoretische te weinig gekoppeld aan de praktische toepassing ervan

  12. Overall a quality course that summarizes the evidence well.


    Overall a good course. I found the scapula dyskinesis section the most helpful, as it taught helpful physical exam findings that I could not find elsewhere. I also found the discussion on various tissue irritability helpful. I removed one star because this course has large sections of text, and relatively little videos and helpful diagrams. In comparison to the PFPS course by Claire Robertson, there was too much text and too little videos. I do appreciate how evidence based the course was, but summary diagrams and additional videos would have been helpful. Despite this, I would still recommend this course.

  13. The best course so far


    I really enjoyed this course, so much it felt like a pleasure instead of a work. The explanations are very clear and the content is well documented and complete. Thank you!

  14. Review


    Très bon cours, je le recommande pour se remettre à jour sur les tendinopathies de l’épaule.

  15. Good Theory, less exercesis


    I liked the theoretical part of the course. A good refresher about the shoulder and rotator cuff with new insights
    I was a bit disappointed in the part ‘exercises’. They were super basic and without explinations.

  16. RCRSP Course


    Fantastic course that’s easy to follow, up to date and evidence based. I’ve immediately been able to implement what I’ve learnt in to my own work which has given me a lot more confidence as well as made it more enjoyable! A good refreshed for me on how the rotator cuff works, a better understanding of how to treat these problems and better communicate with my patients as well as exercise inspiration (always appreciated!). Overall very happy to have done this course!

  17. RCRSP


    This course is well designed and based on solid evidence. The information is presented in a structured manner, using text, images and videos to enhance understanding. In addition, I appreciated the course’s emphasis on effectively conveying this information to patients. However, I wished the exercise therapy was more extensive.

  18. RCRSP cursus


    Ik ben super blij ermee.
    Het was een zeer interessante training. Het cursus was rijk met ge-update informatie, alles wordt volledig en transparant uitgelegd. Ik moet ook toevoegen dat deel van nuttige sets oefeningen briljant is! Veel nuttige tips en combinaties om rotator cuff pijn te kunnen verminderen en alle spieren efficiënt te trainen. Ik ben er trots op dat ik weer mijn kennis en competenties kon ontwikkelen en om mijn patiënten een professionele benadering van schoudercomplexe aandoeningen te kunnen bieden.

    Super bedankt!! 

  19. RCRSP Course


    Very satisfied with this course. Provides a great framework with which to build your assessment and rehabilitation strategies

  20. Prima cursus!


    goed te doen, uiterst praktisch

  21. Overall a great course


    This is a very informative and comprehensive course.

    Some of the quiz answers that are correct are counted as incorrect, which is a pity.

  22. Good course


    Good theoretical and practical course with exercises that you can immediately use in practice.

  23. Goede RCRSP cursus.


    Over het algemeen een goede cursus waarbij ik veel ben opgestoken. Goede, evidence based informatie met hier een daar wat uitleg video’s die zeker helpvol waren. Het is ook fijn dat je onder de cursusonderdelen vragen kan stellen en hier een antwoord op kan verwachten van Filip zelf. 4 sterren i.p.v. 5 sterren omdat ik graag meer duidelijkheid en uitleg in video format over de oefeningen had willen zien. Er worden een hoop oefeningen getoond maar het is aan de cursist zelf om te bedenken welke in te zetten in de praktijk.

  24. RCRSP


    Ik vond het een waardevolle cursus met onderbouwd wetenscahppelijk onderzoek dat ondersteunt in mijn praktisch handelen. Ik heb al een nieuwe cursus uitgezocht. 🙂
