CEU Course Description
Ankle fractures are the most common type of lower extremity fracture and among the most common types of fractures worldwide. The goal of this CEU course is to evaluate if a standardized but individually suited training program, supervised by a physiotherapist, can improve symptoms and physical outcomes in patients compared to usual care. In addition, separate aspects of the postoperative care regimen, such as effect of ankle exercises, weight-bearing, and unprotected treatment are analyzed in order to tailor clinical advice accordingly. This course is based off of articles by BioMed Central Ltd. and PLOS ONE.
