Event description

Description

A 1 day workshop covering the evidence-based assessment and management of individuals with elbow disorders and dysfunction. The Elbow course is designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skills in the evidence-based management of individuals with elbow disorders and dysfunction. The course focuses on clinical reasoning via case presentations and hands-on skill development necessary to effectively perform a comprehensive elbow evaluation with an understanding of how the elbow is of vital importance in upper limb function. Participants will learn and receive hands-on practice of evidence-based treatments including assessment techniques, taping, strength progression and exercises to improve stability and range.

Val Jones is a Clinical Physiotherapy Specialist working at the Sheffield Shoulder and Elbow Unit at the Sheffield Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust and also works in private practice. She lectures nationally and internationally about the assessment and rehabilitation of the elbow joint. Val has published in peer reviewed journals and is a previous AHP representative on the British Elbow and Shoulder Society Council, as well as being the current UK national delegate for EUSSER. She has organised and presented upon the highly successful Sheffield Elbow course for Physiotherapists and has recently been awarded a prestigious Copeland Fellowship from the British Elbow and Shoulder Society, travelling to Cape Town.
