MSK Education

You face many different presentations of musculoskeletal conditions in your day-to-day practice. Build on your diagnostic skills by learning the most current techniques so that you can continue to ensure optimal care and timely recovery for your patients.
The MSK Education: Joint Assessment Made Easy Workshop takes a systematic, hands-on approach to bring the latest musculoskeletal examination diagnostic assessment skills as they apply to the major joints of the body – shoulder, back, hip, knee and ankle.

  • Identify the mechanisms that underlie common injuries of the major joints of the body by conducting an organized physical exam
