Achilles Tendinopathy

R400.00

3 CEUs

    This e-Learning course summarises the tendinopathy continuum and articulates the authors' clinical reasoning and hands-on experience managing Achilles tendinopathy. We outline graded loading concepts while emphasising that relying on recipes is likely to fail. We also provide a perspective on the role of central pain processing and peripheral input from nociceptive fibres in the context of tendinopathy. 

    Rehabilitation should be tailored to address identified impairments (muscle bulk asymmetries, kinetic chain dysfunction, tolerance of energy storage and release in the Achilles tendon), and progressively work toward movements and activities relevant for the individual's sport or daily activities.

Video - Achilles VS Patellar Tendinopathy: Rehabilitation Challenges?!

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Patellar tendinopathy is characterised by localised anterior pain and is related to an increase load on the knee extensor muscles.  Achilles tendinopathy is a common overuse injury caused by repetitive energy storage and release with excessive compression.

    Treatment should be individualised to each patient and their activities. It is important as a clinician to understand the pathology and the evidence-based practice for rehabilitating a person with tendon pain. The course will provide you with an overview of the pathology and different therapeutic approaches and different clinical presentations of patellar versus Achilles tendinopathy. The medical and physiotherapy management of these conditions will be discussed.

Footwear Selection

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Matching a foot and shoe is a process that requires thought, scientific measurement, and rationale. Though the research on shoe selection is still incomplete, shoe selection based on foot structure and measures of forefoot orientation, arch height and rear foot standing posture can aid in injury prevention.

    This course offers information on the types of running shoes, arationale and overall paradigm for shoe fitting using scientific methodology, as well as scientific literature related to orthotics.

Acute Ankle Injuries:  Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    What is said to be the most common sport injury?  Which of the many different sports injuries is most likely to recur?  Answer: Ankle injuries. 

    Is there anything you can do to reduce the pain, improve the function and prevent recurrence of a sprained ankle – or should you just tell your patient to let the natural recovery process take its course?  This two part course provides valuable answers to these important questions.

Sprained Ankle - Integrated Approach

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Did you know that ankle injury is arguably the most common sport injury? And did you know that a sprained ankle also has a high frequency of recurrence?

    Is there anything you can do to reduce the pain and improve the function of a sprained ankle – or should you just tell your patient to let the natural recovery process take its course?

    Two case studies described in this on-line course demonstrate approaches that provide rapid and significant improvement and provoke some interesting food for thought.

Groin Pain:  A View from Below

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Chronic groin pain is a common problem in athletes. The multifactorial nature and the various anatomical structures that contribute to groin pain have made the condition difficult to prevent and manage. Early detection and intervention are the keys to optimal management and prevention of chronic injury. This course provides the clinician and podiatrist in particular with an understanding of the entity, focuses on the biomechanical risks associated with groin pain from a lower extremity perspective and introduces the role of podiatry as an effective adjunct to the multi-disciplinary groin management team.

Hyperkeratosis of the Foot:  Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Hyperkeratosis is the most common disorder of the adult foot.  In most cases the causes are mechanical in nature and should be managed appropriately.  A minority of cases are caused by a range of other conditions.  Effective treatment for these requires a firm diagnosis.  Where the aetiology is uncertain referral to a specialist should be sought.
