It is an excellent introduction to a common condition affecting a wide range of physiotherapy clients of all ages and mobility, including those with neurological conditions. This course provides the basic knowledge required to screen for the condition, refer to a specialist health practitioner, or teach the client self-management strategies if appropriate.
