Course Overview

This course will cover the recognition, investigation and onward referral of the most common Rheumatological presentations. We will also include a practical component to work on active management of Rheumatic Conditions. Ideal for MSK therapists including Physio’s, Osteopaths, Chiropractors and Sports Therapists. We cover loads of information regardless of where you sit in the care pathway. We will complete case studies to reinforce application of information, lots of opportunity for questions and interaction.

Rheumatology conditions often masquerade as musculoskeletal disorders and this means they are likely to present to therapists. In fact, the closer to the start of a patients journey you are the more likely they are to present to you. Research shows there is significant delays to diagnosis and many individuals have seen multiple professionals prior to their condition being recognised.

This course will cover the signs, symptoms and associated conditions that it is necessary to screen for to ensure you don’t miss these presentations. It also covers the pathophysiology, required investigations and interpretation to ensure you are practicing at the highest level.
