Description Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine Clinic is extremely excited run “The traumatic knee: a new era in diagnosis and rehabilitation” course for health professionals on 29th & 30st July, 2023. This is the only course in Australia taught by a multidisciplinary team of physiotherapists, surgeons and strength and conditioning experts.
Dr. Tim Sayer has pioneered this course from years of clinical experience and research in the field of knee injuries and noticed a lack of education for health professionals regarding diagnosis of complex knee injuries and suitable management.

Additionally, the course provides an in-depth discussion with a large practical component dedicated to rehabilitation from post injury recovery using emerging technology to successful return to sport.
