Description

Are you ready to take your knowledge of the knee to the next level?

In this 7 hour course we will ensure you are confident in assessing, treating, rehabilitating and training the knee area. Whether you are a therapist or a trainer you will come away understanding how the joints, bones and muscles interact to affect function.

You will explore the bomechanics of the lower body and how the muscles around the knee affect this. We will talk about how training principles affect the knee and how to ensure your client remains injury free.

Whether a personal trainer, needing to understand how to train this area effectively, or a therapist needing to use clinical reasoning to treat knee problems, this fully accredited one day course will help you understand the functional anatomy and physiology of the knee.
