Learning Objectives

This is the only course offering Rheumatological and Musculoskeletal Radiology content together with Injection therapy as a modality in the treatment of the generality of Soft Tissue Lesions.
Included in each course is input from a Rheumatologist and Musculoskeletal Radiologist, as well as General Practitioners and Physiotherapists who have practised for many years in the primary care setting.
The clinical approach is primarily, but not exclusively based on the Cyriax method of assessment and is very much ‘hands-on’. Participants will learn to recognise ‘capsular’ from ‘non-capsular’ lesions, appreciate ‘inherent likelihoods’ in the history and examination, learn awareness of ‘yellow’ and ‘red flags’, be guided towards appropriate treatment depending on irritability of the lesion and learn how to carry out common injection therapy and soft tissue mobilisations.
Throughout the course Doctors and Chartered Physiotherapists work together, giving a unique learning experience for both parties.

Event Description

This is the basic course in the examination and treatment of soft tissue lesions and is very relevant to the primary care presentation.
The primary aim is to give the participant a system of examination and treatment that simply differentiates between lesions of joints and soft tissues at all parts of the body. Particular emphasis is laid on understanding of Pain mechanisms, particularly, Referred Pain and unique Cyriax concepts such as Capsular Pattern and End-Feel.
The course is taught over 2 modules:
Part 1: 24th - 27th April 2019
Part 2: 16th - 19th October 2019
At Tallaght University Hospital, Dublin
Examination: December 2019
