Occupational Health Programme

Occupational Health Programme

A comprehensive set of courses on the role of physiotherapy related to the workplace
Physioplus is an awesome platform for both academics and clinicians to upgrade their professional knowledge without affecting their work schedule. The areas covered and the discussions made by the physios from different countries of the world provide a global approach towards each topic. Treatment of each condition varies due to local conditions which helps the physios to filter their goals and approaches accordingly. I really appreciate the effort taken by the whole Physioplus team.
