Online Course: Clinical Reasoning in Tendons
Making the correct diagnosis when tendons are involved is essential to correctly managing the condition. It is useful when clinically reasoning to understand the load and capacity dynamics of tendons. There are tensile, compressive and shearing loads that contribute to tendon pathology and, depending on the capacity of the tendon, these can cause different pathology within the tendons and surrounding structures. There are also key clinical signs and symptoms that can help you accurately diagnose tendinopathy. This course will cover the different types of load that can contribute to tendon pathology and give you some insights into how to clinically reason between various tendon pathologies.Aims
This course aims to provide you with knowledge of the different types of loads that can influence tendon pathology as well as introduce you to various questions and clinical findings that can help you to correctly diagnose tendinopathy.Outline
