Knee Workshop Testimonials

X

“Nick… Thanks very much for the knee course… The sense of relief that there is a clinician and researcher out there looking at things from such a logical and grounded perspective was enormous… the focus you put on tangible, measureable facts rather than unsupported opinion was inspiring… Thanks again”

James Thomson, BSc, MSc, MCSP. Musculoskeletal Specialist Physiotherapist, NHS Ayshire, Scotland, UK.

“I researched Nick’s credentials… What I heard on the knee course that was most interesting to me was how to standardize the tests and exercises… This course has given me more knowledgeable, evidence-based, and factual progressions to my rehab programmes and to my return-to-play process… I would recommend this course to anyone that works in physiotherapy and/or strength and conditioning… Outstanding knee course… Will make everyone better at their jobs and has inspired me”

Brian O’Leary. Team Physiotherapist, Ospreys Rugby Club, Wales, UK.

“I met Nick when he was working with the Parachute Regiment at Colchester Regional Rehabilitation Unit and had the good fortune of studying under and working alongside him. I had attended one of Nick’s knee rehabilitation courses in the past and knew I wanted to do another knee course to study his concepts further… I wanted to increase my awareness and understanding of the clinical reasoning and methodology which underpins knee rehabilitation… The description of the progressions of rehabilitation, the reasoning behind each stage, and the advancement principles were very useful to me in my clinical work… Learning how to do low level rehabilitation techniques and progress through a staged, measured, goal oriented process to more challenging exercises such as deceleration drills is what helped me the most… I enjoyed the balance of practical and theory sessions and would recommend Nick’s knee courses to anyone involved in rehabilitation… they’ll make you better at assessing and rehabilitating your patients”

“Nick… the guidance on progressions of knee rehabilitation was useful because it was a continuum-based approach as opposed to a strict guideline… The knee course will help me do several things better… I’ll be more gradual and objective in my progressions with knee patients… I now have the tools to base my progressions on clinical judgement and objective findings… I can physically prove to the patient where they are in the rehabilitation spectrum, and I’ll be more confident with my clinical decisions… The strong evidence-base will allow me to justify to myself, the patient, physiotherapy colleagues, and any other professionals my approach to knee rehabilitation… I’m confident from the course that the tools I’ve learnt will allow me to be more successful and safe in my practice”

Tracy McAdam. Senior Sports Physiotherapist, Scottish Hockey Union, Hearts Football Academy, FASIC (Fitness Assessment & Sports Injury Clinic, Edinburgh University), Scotland, UK.

“Just wanted to take the time to thank you for three fantastic days of teaching… I wanted to do the knee course to increase my knowledge and understanding of knee rehab… What was most useful to me is I now have the confidence to do open kinetic chain exercises with patients after ACL-reconstruction… Enjoyed most the knowledge, enthusiasm, and motivation from Nick… I would recommend this knee course to all Physiotherapists, this is a must attend course… A must attend course to serve justice to the patients we are treating”

Faye Pattison, BSc (Hons), MCSP, MAACP. Senior Physiotherapist, Springfield Hospital, England, UK.

“I did the knee course because knee injuries are a big problem in the military… I see many soldiers with patellofemoral joint pain, ACL-reconstructions, and PCL-reconstructions… the course suggested new theories and I wanted to do a knee course that would definitely help me treat my patients… What I saw that was most interesting to me was how to prepare soldiers for impact and landing when running and jumping… and the evidence-base to back up the knee exercises and tests and manage patients better… What I want to use most from the knee course is the system for safely and effectively using objective tests to determine a soldier’s knee’s status… I would recommend the knee course to all Physiotherapists and Exercise Rehabilitation Instructors, both military and civilian” 

Aileen Cochrane-Wylie, BSc (Hons), MCSP, MSOM, MAACP. Specialist Physiotherapist, British Army, Paderborn Barracks Primary Care Rehabilitation Facility, Germany.

“I decided to do the knee course to improve my knowledge base on planning and structuring rehab programmes based on sound, scientific knowledge… What was most interesting to me was the clinical reasoning regarding the safe application of exercises following ACL/PCL-reconstruction, as well as how to progress the exercises and avoid aggravating the injury/operation site, and ensure the patient is ready to return-to-sport and other physical activities… What I enjoyed the most was the evidence-based theory and clinical reasoning to support rehab progressions and structure and when it is safe to return-to-play… I would recommend the knee course to all clinicians from all spectrums, and particularly those involved in elite sport if they want to justify rehab progressions and return-to-play decisions”

Martin Cunningham, BSc (Hons), MCSP. Elite Development Physiotherapist, Glasgow Warriors Rugby Club, Scotland, UK.

“Nick’s knee course was very detailed… It will help me do many things better with my patients in addition to just knee rehab, including the improved models of injury causes, treatment, and rehab/exercise progressions… What I enjoyed most about the knee course was that it was challenging, clear, and justified, and will refine my own thinking… Would recommend a knee course with Nick to anyone who deals with improving the physical function of knee-injured patients… Nick progressed my learning like a good knee rehab – good sequencing to a logical conclusion”

Andrew Pallas, ND, DO. Osteopath, Private Practice, Scotland, UK.

“Nick explained concepts in a way that was very easy to think of in terms of my practice and it made a lot of sense… Nick’s ideas and highlighting of bony fatigue were new concepts to me and I can see this is a real concern, and any way to minimize the risk of this affecting a player returning from ACL injury is extremely useful in any setting… I’d recommend Nick’s seminars to any health or performance professional in contact with patients with reconstructed ACLs… Great seminar and course and look forward to seeing Nick present again soon”

Knee Seminar Testimonials

X

“I chose to do this knee seminar because I’d attended a previous strength and conditioning course by Nick that I thought was excellent in its clinical relevance… In the latest seminar on female vs. male knee injury prevention I was really keen to hear about the differences between their respective rehabilitation programmes… What I want to use first and most from this knee seminar is the clinical screening and testing for females to gauge their vulnerability to possible knee ligament damage… I’d recommend these knee seminars to all musculoskeletal physiotherapists and look forward to attending Nick’s next course/seminar”

Mike Davis, BSc (Hons), MCSP. Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapist, HFS Clinics, England, UK.

“I decided to do this knee seminar because I had minimal knowledge about the female vs. male knee and wanted to improve my awareness in this area. What was interesting to me was learning about screening tests that can be easily used in the clinic and about the female menstrual cycle and the implications for knee injury… This seminar is going to help me be more aware of the female vs. male injury prevention and rehabilitation needs… I’d recommend Nick’s knee seminars to anyone involved in knee injury prevention and rehabilitation”

Gillian du Toit, BSc (Hons), MCSP. Senior Physiotherapist, Nuffield Health, England, UK.

“I wanted to do this knee seminar because I see female knee injuries regularly and this is an area of my practice I would like to expand on… What was most interesting to me was learning about the effect of the menstrual cycle on musculoskeletal injuries, as well as the various easy screening tests that should regularly be done with female athletes… I most want to start using the knee injury prevention screening tests for female athletes… I’d recommend these knee seminars to any colleague in knee rehabilitation”

Lucy Nottingham, BHSc (Physio), MCSP. Senior Physiotherapist, Nuffield Helath, Engalnd, UK.

“I chose to do the knee seminar because I’m interested in the effects of the menstrual cycle on female athletes… I was most interested in the evidence-based screening tests that are relevant to everyday clinical practice… Using the researched tests is going to help with better diagnoses for my patients… I’d recommend this knee seminar to anyone who works with athletes and young females”

Rosemary Lillie, BSc (Hons), MCSP. Proprietor, West Wimbledon Physiotherapy Clinic, England, UK.

“I’ve ruptured both my ACLs and had them reconstructed, and so am very interested in injury prevention and rehabilitation research… What I saw that was interesting to me was the battery of screening tests for female ACL injury and re-injury… This knee seminar is going to help me screen my patients better for the risk of injury and re-injury… I’d recommend Nick’s knee seminars to anyone involved in knee injury prevntion and rehabilitation”

“I have been working as a military physiotherapist and felt that it would be very valuable for me to attend Nick’s seminar… What I saw that was most interesting to me was that military rehabilitation must be progressed in a very structured and organized way. I particularly like the operational physical fitness model, it really reinforces how military rehabilitation is so different to sports rehabilitation… I also liked how Nick highlighted the need to do functional and specific rehabilitation for military personnel and how a different approach to treating sports injuries is needed… I’d recommend these seminars to all military physiotherapists… Thank you very much for a really interesting and thought-provoking seminar”

“I’ve applied to be an Army Physiotherapist and felt this seminar would give me a good insight into military job demands… The information I saw on increasing the specificity of military rehabilitation programmes was most useful to me… I also liked hearing about how to use specific outcome measures to ensure training specificity and training progression… The discussion regarding specific training for military vs. sporting injuries was very valuable… What I want to use first from this seminar is the information about military-specific rehabilitation programmes… I’d recommend these seminars to everyone interested in targeting their military rehabilitation programmes to gain meaningful results… Thank you for a great seminar!”

“I chose to do this seminar because I wanted to increase my knowledge of military rehabilitation… What I saw that was most interesting to me was the clear and concise description of the different fitness parts leading up to full operational fitness… This seminar has furthered my knowledge of higher level military requirements and a different approach to rehabilitation when compared to sports injuries… Nick’s delivery and overall plan of presentation was superb and very well done, a great deal was covered clearly in just three hours… I’d recommend these seminars to all physiotherapists looking to develop their military specific rehabilitation and physical fitness skills”
