Clinical/business/diversification skills and increase potential market share/clinic turnover?
Clinical skills developed will enable clinicians to confidently perform functional testing and rehabilitation aligned to current clinical guidelines after lower-limb injury and/or surgery through to patients with osteoarthritis. These types of services are often requested by orthopaedic surgeons and GPs. This could be a source of referral.
