Course Description

This course is designed to improve a movement professional’s understanding of the structures of the knee. A large part of the course is devoted to understanding the anatomy and physiology of the knee and how this relates to the work we do as movement teachers in the studio. The hinge joint of the knee is complex, having to deal with strains and dysfunctions from the hip and feet. We will be reviewing the anatomy of the knee so as to understand its function, which in turn influences the development of appropriate exercise and movement strategies.

The course is designed to give the participants the capacity to critically analyse specific pathologies of the knee and to develop strategies for exercises and movement that will help facilitate recovery and to minimise the risk of further injuries. The focus is on ligament injuries, reconstructions, replacements and osteoarthritis of the knee, as well as Osgood-Schlatter’s disease and patellar tracking issues.

The key learning outcomes of this course are an understanding of the following concepts and exercise strategies that can be used in a studio setting:
// The knee joint and associated structures
// The most common ligament injuries that occur in the knee
// Menisci injuries
// The processes for knee replacement and reconstruction
// Patellofemoral tracking problems
// Osgood-Schlatter’s disease
// Key arthritic conditions in the knee joint

Who is this course for

Any movement teachers wanting to expand their knowledge of the knee in particular. This can be a good introductory course to the anatomy and physiology of the knee and leg, but also works as a refresher for teachers who would like to build their confidence in dealing with conditions in this area.
