Event description

Description

This course will focus on the management of knee injuries in cycling. As well as helping attendees with differential diagnosis and off the bike management strategies it will de-mystify the complexities of cycling position, equipment and shed some light on the technical aspects of cycling. This will especially be useful for the clinicians who manage cycling injuries but are not familiar with the sport as well as experienced cycling clinicians looking to gain specific knowledge in this area.

This course is a combination of theory and practical, with a live demonstration of cycling analysis with specific focus on adjusting the bike for management of knee injuries. The course will provide participants with the opportunity to diversify by being able to confidently treat members of the cycling and triathlon community.

Take your practice to the next level with this detailed and specific course focusing on the most prevalent injury in cyclists. Clinical skills will be enhanced by improved reasoning and clinical examination of patients. The course will present delegates with business opportunities to diversify into the cycling and triathlon fraternities.
