About this course

In this 3-hour webinar series, neuromusculoskeletal and orthopaedic physiotherapist, Brett Phillips, outlines how to phase rehabilitation programs to ensure that you fully rehabilitate all aspects of your patient’s function in line with their recovery timeframes.

In addition to this, he’ll discuss how to pace your rehabilitation in order to ensure optimal improvements are achieved during each rehabilitation phase.
