Very good short course! The instructors talk about the LEAP study they have conducted. It comes with brilliant exercises and has immediately changed the way I treat Gluteal Tendinopathy. Can't wait to put it into practice. Thank you.
Great update on new evidence in Gluteal Tendinopathy which has changed my practice!

Physioplus courses have a big impact on my clinical practice. It is a good way to stay up to date the latest treatments

Physiopedia courses are always informative and relevant to my clinical practice. I particularly like the fact that there are courses to suit my schedule. When I have more time to spare I can participate in one of the longer course formats but for those times I am busy I can still manage to find time to do a short course. The short courses can be completed in an evening.
