An increasing number of Physiotherapy graduates are working on a freelance basis alongside their work in the NHS. Some choose to pursue further studies in education, research or undertake further training.

Modules

The module explores approaches to patient assessment and contemporary methods of documentation underpinned by effective communication as a universal tool. It will also explore interventions such as massage and soft tissue techniques, manual therapy techniques, electrophysical modalities, analysis of functional movement and techniques to facilitate it, and therapeutic use of physical activity and exercise. The use of techniques, and how they may be adapted to suit individual need, will be considered including approaches designed to support prevention, lifestyle change and self-management within a range of specialist populations.
