Ever struggled to diagnose a tricky patient presentation?

You know the cases. The ones where you’ve tried everything you can think of and still your assessments are just too generic to get to the root cause of their pain.

Your training, experience and expertise are telling you that your assessment criteria just doesn’t cater for the intricate differences and individual needs to your patient’s lower extremity complaints.

Especially when you come across tough cases that don’t present or respond as you’ve been taught they “should”.

Ensuring you have the most robust set of assessments possible is absolutely essential if you want to handle even the most complex of cases.
