  • Active, Passive, Active Resisted, and Clinical testing for the knee
  • Manual therapy techniques for the knee region
  • Exercise intervention of the knee- muscular endurance, strength, proprioception and functional tasks
  • All elements integrate the case history, pain science and tissue healing information and activities covered in phase 1

Pre-Course:

  • You will complete a worksheet that will introduce you to the anatomy and function of the knee

Part A

Part a) During the morning session you will:

  • Learn in-depth anatomy for the knee region:
    • Bones and bony landmarks: Femur, tibia, fibula, patella
    • Joints: TibioFemoral, Patellofemoral, SuperiorTibioFibular
    • Ligaments: Anterior/Posterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACL/PCL), Medial and Lateral Collateral Ligaments (MCL/LCL)
    • Structure and function of the meniscus
    • Structure and function of the knee joint capsule
    • Bursa: SupraPatellar, Popliteal, SemiMembranosus, Gastrocnemius, PrePatellar, Superficial and Deep Infrapatellar Bursae, Pes Anserinus Bursa, Iliotibial bursa
    • Movements of the knee joint
    • Q-Angles
    • Function of the patella
    • Screw home mechanism of the knee

    • Blood Vessels and Nerves: Femoral, sciatic and tibial nerve pathways, Popliteal artery

Part a) During the afternoon session you will:

  • Learn how to conduct clinical testing for the knee region including:

    • Active Resisted (Strength) testing
    • Clinical tests (Including the sensitivity and specificity): Clarks test, Obers, drop jump test, Thessaly, Varus, Valgus stress tests, Lachmanns, Lever test, plica test

Part b) During the afternoon session you will:
