Introduction to Physiotherapy for the Orthopaedic Patient

Introduction to Physiotherapy for the Orthopaedic Patient

Course outline:

This course will help you to do more in practice to optimise the recovery of patients following orthopaedic surgery or conditions – in particular, patients requiring treatment or surgery for cruciate rupture, spinal conditions and limb fractures.

Your learning on the course will provide a basic introduction that will enable vets and nurses in first opinion or referral practice to have a deeper understanding of the recovery implications for these orthopaedic conditions, and learn simple techniques that can help optimise patient healing, maintain mobility, and improve comfort levels; as part of the multi-modal approach to rehabilitation.
