No prerequisites needed.

This module of Science for the Curious is a short course, running for three sessions, outlining the principles and practices of physiotherapy, describing different types of arthritis, our musculoskeletal system and how we use physiotherapy (at home and in the treatment centre) to manage arthritis, in particular pain.
