Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) is a common condition that affects up to 25% of women over the age of 40. It presents as lateral hip pain and is most likely due to gluteal tendinopathy. GPS is not only associated with impairments around the hip, but also with significant negative psychosocial impacts including reduced fulltime employment and poor mental health. GTPS can be hard to treat. The current evidence supports interventions such as exercise and appropriate education (load management).
This course will have a large focus on the practical application of specific physiotherapy skills required to effectively manage pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain (PR-PGP). Using the most recent evidence, the course will review the functional anatomy and biomechanics of the pelvic girdle and the physiological changes relevant to PR-PGP, and teach specific assessment and treatment techniques for PR-PGP (including the sacroiliac and pubic symphysis joints). It will also include how to prescribe exercises and the relevant contra-indications for this patient group, including pelvic floor muscle training. At the end of the course you will review case studies to demonstrate and reinforce the clinical reasoning process behind effectively managing patients with PR-PGP.
The all new Spinal Physiotherapy Part A (Cervical) course is a foundation course aimed at physiotherapists wanting to gain a contemporary overview of neck disorders, and develop skills in:
• interpreting patient history;
• performing a standard, comprehensive, physical examination;
• interpreting assessment findings to identify and select appropriate best practice interventions.
The aim of this two day course is to update and improve the knowledge and skills of participants in best practice physiotherapy management of patients with acute and chronic cardiorespiratory impairments within acute, subacute and ambulatory/community settings. The intent is to build on previous 'entry-level practitioner' knowledge, and to assist with the ongoing development of skills and competence of the participants within the cardiorespiratory area. Successful completion of this course forms a part of the framework for meeting the objectives of the CRPA titling process; thus facilitates career progression for those wishing to pursue the CRPA titling and specialisation pathway.
