Movement Science and Multimodal Rehabilitation

This programme has been designed to allow a sports therapist or a physiotherapist to continue professional and educational development by consolidating, enhancing and extending their expertise and abilities in biomechanical analysis, and applying them for clinical practice in sports therapy and musculoskeletal rehabilitation; a key feature of the course is its integration of the theoretical and practical components needed to work professionally in their respective clinical practice; it provides students with postgraduate skills in application of movement science in assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and rehabilitation; students also learn how to design and implement custom-made, exercise-based rehabilitative programmes developed from applied knowledge of the pathomechanics of injury; other professional skills may be practised within the modules and applied to more complex clinical scenarios, which will develop a higher level of sophistication of clinical reasoning and autonomous decision-making and problem-solving.
