Modular courses in Modern Orthopaedic Medicine Cyriax

Why are we still teaching "Cyriax" courses ?  Isn't that "outdated" ?


Which practical strategy do we use in specific Orthopaedic Medicine (Cyriax) course modules ?

We avoid "artificial hypercomplication" in theoretical or practical procedures and therefore we try to focus on relevant and practical details that really matter and that have an influence on our diagnostic and treatment procedure ; the study of each joint is composed of the following elements : 

  • where necessary, there is a specific, practical, anatomical recapitulation
  • features of the specific and general history
  • inspection, functional examination, palpation and accessory examination
  • how to interprete all test movements
  • how to reach a diagnosis / differential diagnosis
  • how to work with the standardized Cyriax Orthopaedic Assessment Form
  • how to determine a treatment strategy - clinical reasoning procedures
  • orthopaedic manual therapy (Cyriax) treatment techniques : transverse friction massage, manipulation, traction, mobilization, injection, infiltration
  • recapitulation sessions by using moc clinics, clinical recapitulation schemes, multiple choice questions, true-false questions and practical recapitulation of examination and treatment procedures
