MASTERING LOWER LIMB TENDINOPATHY COURSE

 

Open to ANY health professional who treats tendinopathy

13.5 hours CPD (2.5 hours pre-course video, 11 contact hours)

Get the BEST Insights and Skills in Tendinopathy Management With a World Leading Expert

 

Delivered by Peter Malliaras, physio PhD and tendinopathy clinician-scientist.

Pete has a respected international research profile, and is consulted by many people for a second opinion regarding their tendon injuries, including elite athletes and performers (eg football, rugby, ballet, and tennis). He sees over 30 tendinopathy patients in clinic per week, so you get an up-to-date and clinical perspective

In this course Peter will introduce a rehabilitation and management model for all the commonly injured tendons in the lower limb, including the Achilles, gluteal (aka trochanteric bursitis), hamstring, patellar, tibialis posterior, plantar fascia. You will develop highly effective clinical reasoning and practical skills and master the assessment and management of patients with tendinopathy.

Whether you are a new graduate or very experienced clinician, you will come away with many answers to your questions as well as clinical gems to take away.
