CERTIFICATE COURSE

The orthopaedic physical therapy treatment pattern which a physical therapist practice in clinics has changed a lot from olden times. The season which is going is about correcting the root cause of mechanical problems there by relieving pain and disability. There exists different treatment techniques in the field of rehabilitation. The effectivness of the treatment depends on the accurate diagnosis .

Started since 2008... trained more than 1000 physios.. Clinical differential diagnosis :

GLOBAL DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS- First Level
The term indicates a massive group of conditions which are primarily non mechanical in nature but the chief complaints of the patient mimics mechanical problems. physical therapist who come across with a first line diagnosis for a patient should be aware how such disease process shows up in a patient. Examples are hematological reasons, endocrinal reasons,oncological reasons… etc for bone and joint pain. There are no physical therapy treatment techniques to treat the root cause of this set of disease process but secondary physical therapy care is vital.
ANATOMICAL DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS- Second Level
Once the problem is recogonized as mechanical,the real skill of a physical therapist will get tested.from then onwards the diagnosis aims at finding out anatomical structure/structures which possibly could get involved and to what extend it got involved. Observation of the patient, touch and examination confirm all the doubts and helps to arrive a t a single diagnosis.
POSSIBLE REASONS FOR THE PAIN- Third Level
This level of diagnosis is very much vital for a physical therapist. This level of diagnosis will find out possible reasons why the particular anatomical structure gets involved.for example the role of foot in knee joint arthritis,shoulder rotation in tennis elbow,hip muscle power in patella femoral arthritis …etc.this level of knowledge is getting accumulated in each second through relentless effort of many researchers around the globe.

Radiological differential diagnosis
The basic knowledge for X ray and MRI reading is vital for a physical therapist in many ways. Initiall y it helps in identifying the global non mechanical conditions for which the physical therapy is not the cure initially.(to identify red and yellow flags) Second the clinical anatomical diagnosis can be confirmed by means of x ray and MRI basic reading skills for a physical therapist.

Now the treatment. Physical therapy have a lot many treatment modalities and technique which are effective and mostly got no side effects also. the rationale of the treatment depends on the diagnosis a physical therapist make.

This certificate course will train a physical therapist in getting a clear integrated view in diagnosing any orthopaedic ailment of a patient clinically and radiologically there by helping the therapist in selecting accurate treatment technique and modality among many.

After completion of the course the participant will be able to :

  1. differentiate the causes for the musculoskeletal pain and disabilities which is similar in nature(hematological, metabolic, oncological....etc)by clinical diagnosis and radiological hints. This helps you to establish yourselves as a first line physiotherapy practioner.
  2. Differentiate anatomical structures which cause musculoskeletal pain and disabilities which are similar in nature, by clinical diagnosis and confirm it by X ray and MRI findings. This helps you to select apt treatment, among many to rehabilitate the patient promptly and swiftly.
  3. Identify the possible causes of why the anatomical structure would have failed and there by prevent the recurrence.
