Patellofemoral Pain Uncovered - Book Here

Saturday 29th February £150

Ms Claire Robertson MSc PGCE MCSP

This course aims to directly impact on the clinician's ability to assess and treat patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome, (PFP). The course is a mixture of theory, demonstrations and practical sessions, totally underpinned by evidence. There is a strong emphasis on clinical reasoning throughout.

Claire Robertson is a consultant physiotherapist in patellofemoral pain, at Wimbledon Clinics. She is actively involved in patellofemoral research, having published in many journals, including the American journal of Sports Medicine. She is currently writing up a number of papers following extensive research on the VMO, and she has also recently finished a research grant researching patellofemoral crepitus. Claire's niche clinical practice and passion for making her teaching relevant to clinicians together with her places her perfectly to deliver this course.
