Prof Jill Cook - Clinical Tendon Symposium for PTs, August 12 & 13


The world’s leading tendon physiotherapist is coming to Vancouver to share her pearls with you. Fresh from her sold-out workshops and lectures in France, Spain and the UK, Prof Jill Cook will run a 1-day symposium on Saturday, August 12 and an exclusive 1-day workshop on Sunday, August 13 in Vancouver.


Symposium - Saturday, August 12, 2017

The learning objectives of the symposium will mean that after the course you will:

  • Be able to confidently distinguish tendon pain from other causes of patient pain
  • Know when to ignore/downplay imaging (Ultrasound, MRI) information about patients in relation to tendon pain
  • Assess the patient’s capacity and devise a treatment program to address specific limitations in capacity that are relevant for that patient’s goals
  • Be aware of the rationale for the 4-stage treatment approach that includes isometric strengthening, isotonic exercises, energy storage exercises and sport-specific rehabilitation

The course will focus on management of clinical cases and you will be encouraged to contribute clinical scenarios ahead of the symposium.


Masterclass - Sunday, August 13, 2017
Exclusive - 25 spots only!

Professor Cook is also holding an additional 1-day masterclass on Sunday, August 13th. This will include a round-table discussion of topics from the Saturday in further detail as well as clinical assessment of cases in the areas of

  • In-season treatment of tendon pain 
  • Insertional tendon problems
  • The patient who has seen everyone
  • More detailed exercise demonstration for the 4-step program.

Attendance at the symposium is a pre-requisite for the masterclass.

This course is restricted to physiotherapists.  Click here for ticketing information.
