About this course:

The team at Physica is offering a professional development course to help final year students or those who have graduated in the past two years with their assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.

Our team of postgraduate titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists will help you:

  • how to undertake a detailed subjective and objective examination
  • perform a wide range of clinical special tests
  • perform manual therapy and manipulative techniques
  • understand common clinical conditions

The course will be limited to a select group of 24 students, with a  teaching ratio of one clinician to every six students.

You will learn from our experienced clinical team, all of whom have been providing undergraduate and postgraduate training for many years.

This course is open to final year students and Physiotherapists with less than two years of experience who wish to pursue a career in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
