Past Course Testimonials

“Course was great, Nick. Wish we had more time… Will have an instant impact on our clinical practice… Highly recommend Nick’s knee CPD course… A huge evidence-base and highly clinical-based delivery”

Chris Morgan. Former Head Physiotherapist, Liverpool Football Club, England, UK; Current Head Physiotherapist, Crystal Palace Football Club, England, UK.

“This course has given me more knowledgeable, evidence-based, and factual progressions to my rehab programmes… I would recommend this course to anyone that works in physiotherapy and/or strength and conditioning… Outstanding knee course… Will make everyone better at their job and has inspired me”

Brian O’Leary. Former Team Physiotherapist, Ospreys Rugby Club, Wales, UK; Current Head of Medical Services, London Irish Rugby Club, England, UK.

“This course has immediately changed what I do in the clinic with backing from available literature. It’s increased my confidence with knee exercise prescription and loading principles. The most clinically applicable course I have ever attended. Can’t wait to attend the late-stage course.”

Laura Breathnach. Physiotherapist, SPEAR Physiotherapy, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.


Course Description

The ‘early’ and ‘middle’ stages of knee rehabilitation are the most important stages of the knee rehabilitation process. This is because the early and middle stages of knee rehabilitation lay a solid foundation for the safe and effective implementation of late-stage rehabilitation techniques (e.g. plyometric training). Inappropriate or 'rushed' early- and middle-stage knee rehabilitation can increase the risk of failed late-stage rehabilitation due to re-injury, new injury and premature osteoarthrosis (OA). The early and middle stages of knee rehabilitation are often seen by therapists and patients as ‘boring’ and ‘simplistic’ stages of knee rehabilitation. While many early- to middle-stage knee rehabilitation exercises can certainly be considered boring, the knowledge and clinical reasoning underlying the selection of the correct rehabilitation exercise for the correct injury at the correct point-in-time is far from simplistic. Different knee injuries and surgeries require the application of different strength and conditioning techniques within different range-of-motion and weight-bearing restrictions. Furthermore, the evidence-base that guides the scientific design and strategic clinical implementation of early- and middle-stage knee rehabilitation exercises has undergone major expansion and evolution in recent years. Modified versions of both open kinetic chain (OKC) and closed kinetic chain (CKC) exercises must now be used for safe, effective and thorough rehabilitation of all types of knee injury.

The purpose of this course is to present you with advanced concepts in OKC and CKC exercise in knee rehabilitation for ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL, and meniscus injury and surgery. Emphasis is placed on presenting you with advanced knowledge and understanding of tissue, joint and exercise biomechanics, neurological mechanisms, clinical outcomes research and advanced clinical reasoning processes that form the foundation for you to become a specialist in knee rehabilitation. As you participate in this course, you’ll experience accelerated learning and interactive education techniques proven to help you rapidly acquire the knowledge and skills to confidently and easily make decisions about your athletes’ early- to middle-stage rehabilitation.
