"Absolutely do it!" Shoulder Essentials - Practical Course


It makes something that can feel like a can of worms into something quite simple!

Shoulder Essentials - Practical Course


Being a physio who is only 2yrs out of university, I find it challenging to make clear diagnoses of the shoulder and then follow this with appropriate interventions. Leaving today’s course, I feel confident going to work on Monday and be able to make an approach and make clinical decisions with my patients that is going to benefit them the most!

"Genuine benefit for my learning." Shoulder Essentials - Practical Course


I think most people could undertake this course and still get lot out of it.

"Do it!" Shoulder Essentials - Practical Course


You won't regret it and it will be extremely beneficial to all your shoulder patient. Great instructor, the pre-course prep was very interesting and relevant, and the quizzes were a great way to consolidate your learning.

"I really enjoyed this course." Shoulder Essentials - Practical Course


There was a mixture of education and exercise-based therapy which has made it specific and applicable to working with a wide range patients.

Shoulder Essentials - Practical Course


I had a frozen shoulder patient today and totally knew what I was doing after doing the course. She had had a small trauma and usually I'd be thinking other things as the cause, but it was pretty clear after doing the history and assessment. The lady was very upset after having seen her GP and talking with friends about it and crying in the beginning of the appointment and by the end was smiling and thanking me!
