Course outline

This is a part time course that will require you to be working as a Registered Healthcare Professional or other Professional working in Clinical Biomechanics and Gait Analysis. As clinical practice involving physical therapeutic procedures has progressed, those patients seeking advice on issues relating to complaints of a biomechanical nature have increased. Furthermore, increased recreational and professional sporting activities require a practitioner skilled in clinical biomechanics. Even the treatment of traditional musculoskeletal problems benefit from knowledge of possible underlying origins of these problems.
