Improving on your knowledge and clinical reasoning gained from our level 1 course, this course is designed to give physiotherapists sound knowledge of the anatomy, biomechanics and pathology of injuries to common body areas and across different sports. Topics covered include hip and groin, elbow wrist and hand injuries, foot pain and tendon pain.
This course is an opportunity to enhance your skills in managing complex neck pain disorders that are often associated with headache, jaw pain, and dizziness. Drawing on knowledge from research, applied anatomy and clinical expertise, enhance your knowledge of the unique characteristics of the cervical vertebral column and cervical musculature in states of health and impairment. This knowledge underpins a systematic approach to the assessment and rehabilitation of cervical movement disorders. The course will be focused on a structured management approach appropriate for all problematic cervical disorders including whiplash associated disorders.

Best practice requires advanced skills in diagnoses, treatment and rehabilitation when treating patients with acute and complex knee conditions.
The aim of this course is to improve participant's evidence-based clinical knowledge of knee conditions and apply this to the rehabilitation of their patients in a wide variety of practical settings (sedentary to elite sporting populations).
On completion of this course, participants would be expected to have an advanced understanding of the diagnostic criteria and management approaches necessary to treat these conditions.
There is a bias towards active sporting patient populations within this course, with multidisciplinary presentations on Orthopaedics, Radiology, Sports Physiotherapy and Athletic Development.
This course will focus on advanced level clinical reasoning and treatment approaches explored in other APA / SPA courses, with a particular practical focus on mid to end stage rehabilitation.
