Advanced Differential Diagnosis and Treatment of Elbow Pain

CourseAdvanced differential diagnosis and treatment of elbow pain with Leanne Bisset

This course is appropriate for AHPRA registered physiotherapists only* 

Chronic elbow pain reflects a complex aetiology. Understanding the contribution of local tissue pathology, and sensory and motor system impairments to the individual’s clinical presentation of elbow pain will assist clinicians in implementing an effective treatment program. This course is designed to give physiotherapists applied knowledge of the latest evidence regarding individualising treatment for people with chronic elbow injuries and will present a contemporary, evidence-based clinical pathway for treatment of elbow pain, and discuss treatment options based on clinical presentation, prognostic indicators and underlying pathophysiology.

Learning Outcomes

1. Understand the applied clinical anatomy and biomechanics of the elbow

2. Understand the evidence of the mechanisms underpinning elbow pain

3. Demonstrate acquired applied knowledge of the latest evidence regarding aetiology and predictors of recovery in people with elbow injuries

4. Demonstrate knowledge of the research evidence evaluating a range of treatments (conservative, injection, surgical) for elbow injuries

5. Translate the evidence into clinical practice and clinical reasoning of evidence-based treatment options, including the importance of the multi-disciplinary team management of patients with elbow injuries

6. Demonstrate refined manual therapy skills and exercise prescription for the assessment and management of elbow injuries.

Presenter: Leanne Bisset APAM, Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapist.
