The Painful Knee

The physiotherapist is very often the first clinician to examine the patient presenting with a painful knee. This course is aimed at building skills in history taking and examination. This will help the physiotherapist to gauge the severity of a painful knee problem, and also the possible need for referral to a knee surgeon .

A broad range of knee topics are covered, including the painful knee in children. There will be opportunities for questions, for hand-on examination and plenty of time for discussion with colleagues.​
