Which exercise or manual techniques are most suitable during repair?
When should they be introduced?
Are there contraindications to physical therapy during repair?

In this two-day online workshop Prof Tim Watson will examine the processes underlying tissue repair. There will a discussion of the research, exploring the key events, control systems and the various influences of therapy interventions. This knowledge will provide a clinical basis for future treatment and an enhanced rationale for clinical decision making in this area.
In the practical session participants will have the opportunity to discuss case histories and explore the management of various conditions associated with tissue repair. This will include exercise, self-care advice and manual techniques/approaches.
The content of the sessions will remain clinically relevant to enable immediate application.
