Two day workshop
To give participants an understanding of the functional and regional anatomy of the ankle complex. Also, to identify the common injuries and problems likely to be encountered in this frequently injured anatomical region. Whilst specifically focused on musculoskeletal problems the principles taught and demonstrated can be applied to all spheres of musculoskeletal practice. The course will further aim to give an understanding of the principles of rehabilitation and treatments for patients with ankle injuries. The course will also clarify and determine the criteria for progressions from the acute/early phase through to the final functional pre-discharge stage of rehabilitation. Whilst specifically focused on orthopaedic problems, the principles taught and demonstrated can be applied to all spheres of musculoskeletal practice, including rheumatology, paediatrics & sports injuries. The workshop will also provide participants with the understanding, knowledge, ability and expertise to apply safe and effective manual therapy and mobilisation techniques to the joints of the Ankle complex. The workshop is predominately practical with sessions devoted to problem solving and treatment/technique practice. Common clinical presentations, as well as the key elements of examination and assessment techniques for the ankle complex, will also be included.
Delegates will be required to participate in the practical sessions to enhance experiential learning. Therefore shorts should be bought with you for the sessions. Attendance certificate will be issued. CPD: 14 hours.
