Overview: 

The aim of this course is to enable students to develop a problem-solving approach to neuromusculoskeletal diagnosis. It allows students to develop knowledge about differential diagnosis of neuromusculoskeletal disorders of the hip and knee and to look critically at approaches to treatment and management. This knowledge will be used in the critical evaluation of assessment, treatment and management strategies in neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy, therefore enabling students to critically evaluate clinical practice on the basis of current evidence.
Students will also acquire skills in the assessment and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions of the hip and knee.
