Biomechanics is one of the most often used terms in rehab!

But WTF does it actually mean & how do you use these principles successfully in practice?

This course will demistify & provide practical application strategies to turn 'biomechanics' into more than just a buzz word

Course Schedule

Course Objectives

 

1 - Discover what biomechanics really are and how it has been  misapplied in musculoskeletal healthcare.

2 - Use key concepts in classical mechanics (kinetics and kinematics), & how they apply to human movement & performance, to improve patient outcomes

3 - Explore human movement and utilise this improved understanding in rehabilitation programming for all patients. 

4 - Confidently apply biomechanical principles within an ecological approach to a range of MSK presentations

Jeff is a physiotherapist currently working in an advanced practice role within the NHS, specialising in patients with lower limb disorders. He has gained extensive clinical experience across the private sector, sporting environments, and the NHS. Jeff has retained a strong interest in rehabilitation, particularly in applying scientific approaches to patient care by combining fundamental biomechanical principles and movement science. 

He completed a Masters by Research, focusing on Quadriceps recovery following ACL-R, measured by isokinetic dynamometry, and holds a Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine (DipMSK). Jeff's passion for understanding biomechanics and movement science, coupled with a strong desire to empower others with the knowledge and skills to enhance patient care, is his primary motivation for delivering this course.
