This course provides doctors, nurses, therapists and all interested professionals with an overview of common principles and practices for treatment of the knee through the use of a variety of teaching and learning activities.
The knee is a complicated joint comprising several crucial parts. While it is one of the largest joints in the body, most medical experts would agree it is also one of the most complex. It joins the thigh bone (femur) to the shin bone (tibia). The smaller bone that runs alongside the tibia (fibula) and the kneecap (patella) are the other bones that together go to make up the knee joint. The IRI course covers all this key detail.
Within the leg, tendons connect the knee bones to the leg muscles that move the knee joint while ligaments join the knee bones and provide essential stability:
- The anterior cruciate ligament prevents the femur from sliding backwards on the tibia (or the tibia sliding forward on the femur).
- The posterior cruciate ligament prevents the femur from sliding forward on the tibia (or the tibia from sliding backwards on the femur).
- The medial and lateral collateral ligaments prevent the femur from sliding side to side.
Students will learn that two C-shaped pieces of cartilage called the medial and lateral menisci act as shock absorbers between the femur and tibia. Overall, the knee is obviously complicated and there is a great deal to learn in order to advance your knowledge of this vital joint that is so important for smooth and ongoing mobility.
This course delivers best-practice rehabilitation training based on the Australia-US model. If you are in China and you want to learn best practice rehabilitation for the knee, this is the perfect course for you.

膝关节是由几个关键部位组成的复杂关节。 尽管膝关节是人体内最大的关节之一，但它同样被大多数医学专家视为最复杂的关节之一。 此关节连接着大腿骨（股骨）和小腿骨（胫骨）。 这些较小的骨骼连同胫骨（腓骨）和膝盖骨（髌骨）共同构成了膝关节的其它骨骼。 IRI 课程涵盖了上述内容的所有关键细节。
