About the course

Many post-operative patients would benefit from physiotherapy and hydrotherapy to rehabilitate them back to their highest level of function, and to prevent secondary complications, which may lead to chronic pain, or the need for further surgery. Conservative management of patients with chronic conditions such as hip or elbow dysplasia can also benefit from physiotherapy and hydrotherapy intervention to improve their function and quality of life.

This physiotherapy and hydrotherapy CPD day will adopt a problem based case study format with a focus on patient:
  • Assessment
  • Treatment
  • Evaluation
  • Progression
  • Outcome measures
  • Home exercise programmes
