Physiotherapy Course Summary:
A highly practical course focusing on the biomechanical relationship between the foot, knee, leg, hip and lower back. The course and how orthotic therapy can be integrated with clinical treatments. Finally, delegates will learn how to translate assessment findings into an orthotic prescription, and how to fit and modify orthotics - quickly and simply in the clinic setting.
Spaces are limited – don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to attend the No. 1 lower limb biomechanics course in Australian and New Zealand! Book Now.
Delegates will earn 8 CPD Points per module for attending.
BONUS: Each delegate will receive a FREE Orthotic Starter Pack valued at over £90, with Module 1.
Attendance at a Module 1 course is a pre-requisite for registration to the Module 2 course - however Module 2 is not compulsory.
MODULE 1 - Course Outline:
