Course content

This award is designed for clinical practitioners involved in therapeutic interventions based on biomechanics. Diabetes affects the musculoskeletal system and in order to effectively treat a patient suffering from all types of diabetes it is necessary to understand the mechanics and pathomechanics of the muskulo-skeletal system as well as the mechanics behind the condition that they are treating. This requires a good knowledge of the principles of clinical biomechanics, the effects of diabetes and its relationship to pathomechanics. This award draws heavily on clinical experts using specialist lecturers managed by a small team of module co-ordinators.
