Introduction

Traditionally, operative treatment has been the gold standard for the management of Achilles Tendon rupture. However, over the last decade a significant body of evidence has highlighted successful outcomes with conservative management.

Aims

The course aims to discuss the conservative management of Achilles Tendon rupture with an emphasis on early rehabilitation treatment.

This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video

This was the first online Physioplus course I have done. It was really interesting and informative, giving new research advice to go through at leisure and put into practice when needed. In these trying times when it is nearly impossible to get onto any courses, this is a breath of fresh air.
