ABOUT THE COURSE:
- Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is one of the most common injury presentation to orthopaedic, general practice and sports medicine clinics. During this course, the complex clinical reasoning required to provide an optimal management plan for the varying PFP presentations clinicians see every day will be explored.
- This highly practical course will give you the skills and knowledge to accurate diagnose of Patello-femoral pain considering differential diagnosis.
- The course explores ideal lower limb biomechanics, explore local, proximal and distal deficits related to PFP, and how to identify and address them in a clinical setting.
- The evidence behind, and practical application of interventions including prefabricated foot orthoses prescription, taping, movement pattern retraining, exercise rehabilitation, and adjunctive manual therapy are explored.
The course will be a mixture of lectures, discussions and practical workshops.

3. Effectively apply evidence based interventions in the clinical setting, including: exercise (local, proximal and distal), taping, massage/mobilisation, and adjunctive interventions
4. Develop skills and clinical reasoning processes to apply running retraining interventions when treating running related injuries
