Muscle Strength Ratios - Test Your Knowledge!

Optimise your patient management with the help of leading expert David Fevre

What is the optimum eccentric: concentric strength ratio of the quadriceps or hamstrings post injury?

Click here for the answer +

1.2-1.5 (Davies, 1992).

Eccentric strength is essential in any change of momentum during active movement. These changes may be linear, rotational and/or vertical and is essentially the ‘braking’ system of the human body during high speed activity.

What Do Physiotherapists Say About This Online Mini Series™ Course?

It was great watching at home. I liked the quiz afterwards.

The ongoing access is the gem of your course

Being able to do the course in your own time at your own speed was really useful

Clear, logical explanation of progress through the stages of recovery with use of references to support work. It has given me more rehab ideas for progression and understanding of when a patient is ready to progress through stages and return to sport.

It has given me some useful ideas for my ACL reconstruction patients - I have the task of updating our protocol, so the strategies/theories I have learnt will be incorporated into it and hopefully should see some good results.

It was useful to update my knowledge of the latest treatment and rehabilitation methods for ACLs as much of my knowledge is rusty or outdated.

Learnt loads! A good mixture of theory and practical elements. Very useful additional hand-outs for each section.

I can use some of the rehab ideas for my sporty patients. I feel more confident now on how to progress a patient from each stage. Having the biomechanical/physiology theory/latest literature is useful to back up our EBP.

Hints and tips and honing down of tests to a few that really work especially the prone anterior and posterior glide.

Very informative, really enjoyed the rehab exercises - given me great ideas.
